Overview

When the first step to reclaiming your life means you must threaten to take it.

Olivia never thought she'd be just another one of 'those' abused women, but now she needs to escape the violent same-sex relationship she finds herself in. When her father suffers a stroke and requires 24-hour care, she recognizes an opportunity to start fresh.

The problem is that the place she returns to is a dysfunctional childhood home full of memories that drove her away in the first place.

In order to avoid her own self-destruction, Olivia must find a way to resolve her mother's suicide, her brother's addiction, and her father's need to be understood-- even if it means she must delve into the darkest parts of her own psyche to find forgiveness.

SECRET LANGUAGE OF CROWS is a cross between womens literary fiction and psychological thriller that explores the strength of family ties and the secret lives within them.  In the tradition of Canadian women writers, the author delivers a story both dark and brutal that somehow finds a way to the light.

Meet the Author

Thea Atkinson writes character driven fiction to the left of mainstream; call it what you will: she prefers to describe her work as psychological dramas with a distinct literary flavour. Her characters often find themselves in the darker edges of their own spirits but manage to find the light they seek.

She has been an editor, a freelancer, and a teacher, but fiction is her passion. She now blogs and writes and twitters. Not necessarily in that order.
