This is the story of Carla Jensen, daughter of Anna Jensen. Carla has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Undermined by Carla's dangerous behaviour and Anna's addiction, mother and daughter struggle to cope. We encounter Carla when denial of her illness has finally been medicated out of her and her rebellious nature subdued. Then she stumbles onto an act of savagery that propels her back across the border to the other side - into the maelstrom of madness and sexual deviance that she realises she has never left. But this time she is armed with a quest - in pulling aside the cobwebs that smother her family's past she is forced to confront the enigma of her own urge to self-destruct. Carla's challenging, unforgettable journey takes the reader into the dark heart of the meaning of family. But it is in this no-man's-land of the human spirit that Carla finds the gift she has sought all her life - the empowerment of a transcendent healing.
