‘Mother is growling like an animal; her teeth are gnawing at my sister’s forehead. She is desperately trying to hold back from mauling her as she weeps and shakes with the unholy ecstasy of an inhuman rage.’
Growing up in a home plagued with domestic violence, child abuse, and the occult beliefs of his mentally ill mother, Jason desperately hangs on to his very existence, his sanity, and his soul. But can he turn his tumultuous upbringing into triumph and grace?
Dark Nurture is the author’s third book and being based on client narratives he has experienced as a Psychologist, will leave you questioning our very nature as humans, the worldwide abuse of children, geopolitics and the Deep State, the concept of evil, and what it means to have faith.
