Kate faces the unthinkable when her son’s school bus loses control on a hilly California road. Thrust into an unflinching journey of personal discovery, she questions her every life choice.
Apart from wife? Apart from mother?
She questions her own grip on reality when she suddenly becomes aware of Jennifer, a “respectable” young wife and mother consumed in a powerful love affair. Kate can’t explain who Jennifer is . . . or why Kate knows what she knows.
How can a person feel closer to and more disconnected from herself at the same time?
In a pulsing exploration of womanhood and all that is sacred, Kate and Jennifer’s worlds begin seeping surreally into each other as this book dares to ask: What is gained and what is lost when we have children? Where does a woman’s loyalty belong?
What happens when the invisible is made visible?
Honestly, hypnotically, and with relentless sensitivity, the latent power of female creativity is forever Split Open in Greta Lind’s triumphant debut to the world of women’s fiction.
Split Open is availableon Amazon in paperback and e-book.
