Mother Walked Into the Lake by Alana I. Capria
Mother Walked Into the Lake, Alana I. Capria's second novel, merges fantasy, feminism, and horror into a brilliant but disturbing allegory on motherhood and mental illness. The story follows three children who come face-to-face with the consequences of their Mother's drowning. The novel explores the complicated nature of Motherhood and how women uniquely carry this onus of self-sacrifice, responsibility, and all-consuming love.
