The Violent Child

'The Violent Child portrays the life of a tenacious woman who struggled to make a home for her son, to nurture the disabled daughter of her lover, and to embrace the gift of an unexpected, unconventional love. It is the story of a son who finds himself, at the end of his mother’s life, with a final opportunity for reconciliation. “A sensitive study of working class perils as a boy-turned-man struggles to love the tough but fragile contradictions that are his mother. A moving, unflinching portrait of filial duty and motherly love.” —Kirkus Reviews Michael Sheridan makes his home in the Skagit River country of the Pacific Northwest.  '
