Honor Thy Father and Mother is an unflinching portrayal of family cruelties. Eighteen year old Nora, a child of Holocause survivors, struggles to negotiate life with parents who are both victims and perpetrators. The story opens as she runs from an abusive home into the arms of a violent boyfriend. During the course of a year, she marries, gives birth to a stillborn child, divorces and is twice raped by her father. Dissociated from childhood memories of sexual abuse, and uncannily split off from her father's current attacks, she is a woman divided from herself. Thus we can see in Nora a psychological study of a fragmented personality. Consoled by her studies, and empowered by her books, she is able, finally, to rise up against her father and thus put an end to his assaults. While she remains, at the end, disconnected from truths too painful to acknowledge, we see in her fierce will and intellect a road map towards recovery.

Will the sins of the father be visited upon the son? When Cassandra Warren, the wife of one of the wealthiest business tycoons in Kentucky, is brutally murdered at her lake home, criminal attorney Hunter Cameron’s own nightmare is just beginning. Cassandra’s death is the precise echo of a murder that occurred over forty years before—a case that nearly destroyed Hunter’s own attorney father. Only this time, it is Hunter’s best friend Kirk who is the prime suspect in the vicious slaying. Caught up in a tangled web of small town intrigue and politics, Hunter fights to prove his friend’s innocence. What no one knows is that Hunter is hiding a deadly secret of his own and that catching the real killer and saving Kirk’s life may very well cost him his own… “HONOR THY FATHER has it all!

And then there is George, another inhabitant, imprisoned in the cellar. Little by little, macabre events come to light: events that transform an idyllic country childhood into a world of eccentric isolation.
