Sins of the Father
A child with no name, a woman with no memory.
Arrested for shoplifting, a woman with amnesia fears both her past and her future and denies any knowledge of the mysterious baby found with her.
Psychologist, Allyson Freemont, and Detective Ernie Blackwell work to put together the missing pieces of Feona Parker's life. Compassion and skill help as Feona is brought face to face with a horrifying reality and efforts are made to protect her from falling into a complete and irreversible mental breakdown.
This story travels through the fragile mind of an emotionally scarred woman and her tortuous journey toward wellness. In the balance is the fate of an innocent child who will be turned over to the foster care system and languish there until she ages out—never knowing she has a family who loves and wants her.
Following in the footsteps of her psychological thrillers, "Suffer the Little Children," "Amazing Grace", and "The Prodigal Son," is another fascinating book by Valerie Allen. Sins of the Father takes the reader into the abyss of mental illness.
