The Third Return : A Memoir 

The Third Return entails the vivid description of many significant and abusive incidents that occurred within a small family between 1995 and 2009. While centered on the issue of domestic violence and sub topics like crime and mental health, The Third Return predominantly focuses on three specific turn of events that changed the direction of their lives.  Lovingly narrated, this daughter shares of her devastating and triumphant experiences as she stood by her mother’s side through years of leaving and returning to violence. Encountering a dark, unrecognizable path after each return, this daughter and her siblings endure the silent, roller coaster ride of violence. Their relentless bond and unyielding love will push them to prevail as they miserably discover that violence extends in the form of grief, self-discovery and court rooms.
