Metro Detroit author tackles taboo subject

Many like to think that nothing is as pure as God's love, right? At least that's the antagonist method in creating an environment of incest in my novel, What Happens in My House: Secrecy of Incest in American Families, Journey of Forgiveness and Healing, author Patrice D. Howard. 
Patrice is a local Metro Detroit author and she's trying to create dialogue about this taboo subject that has so many people imprisoned to a psychological bondage. 
In the book, Noelle is disheartened when she learns of the pregnancy of her teenage sister. On a search for the child's paternity, Noelle discovers more than the usual teenage adolescent behavior. She unlocks a painful history of incest, sexual abuse, and much more that has been hidden for so long in the image of this perfect "God Fearing" family. In an effort to dispel the myth of pedophilia and keep her family intact, Noelle must make a choice. Should she expose an ugly truth masked in holiness or keep the family secret and let "time heal all wounds"? Follow this family on an amazing journey of revelation, forgiveness, and healing as they struggle with a generational curse that has plagued many family homes across America.
