She Writes Press News: Announcing TRESPASSERS by Andrea Miles

Trespassers is a novel of deep emotion, not only taking an unflinching look at what happens to a family during sexual and verbal abuse but also dealing with its aftermath. Melanie, haunted but determined to exorcise her past, must choose between revenge and forgiveness. The first may destroy her own marriage, but she is not convinced the latter will bring her the peace of mind she so desperately yearns for. Her husband, Julius--a cop, and thus experienced in dealing with crime and punishment--goes against type and expectation as he struggles to understand his wife’s silent pain. Can Melanie forgive her family and heal her heart? Or will she sacrifice her marriage in order to satisfy her thirst for revenge?

Andrea Miles earned her Masters of Professional Writing from the University of Southern California. Originally from Pocomoke, Maryland, she currently lives in Birmingham, Alabama with her husband and three children. Trespassers is her first novel. To learn more, visit her at www.andreamiles.com.

Congratulations, Andrea. I'm looking forward to reading it.  My own memoir is about family and verbal abuse and aftermath, so I'm very interested in your story.

"Great essay, Nancy! I do get the feeling that some of these big name "memoirs" are more autobiography - which requires so much less reflection."
