Publisher's Summary

For Claire Roth, an established psychotherapist, her new patient - Jody Goodman, a young filmmaker - is a welcome diversion from her predictable life. Jody, successful, yet uncertain, is disarmed by Claire's interest and approval. Gradually, the lines between friendship and family, between love and compulsion, start to blur.
In a Country of Mothers is a transfixing psychological thriller, that forces us to confront our own judgments about sanity, danger, and desire.

- Rebecca

A tale of the haunting of our past.

Adult neuroses and the tragedy of American sense of entitlement and despair brought vividly to life by exceptional narration. More an embodiment of the characters than narration.
