She was my first love. She was my first hate. The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty. Until I dimmed her light for good... Or so I thought. Now she's back. Cracked. Broken. Lost. And for the first time in a long time, I feel free. Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future. Her misery is my music. Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating. For so long, all I've done is hate her. So why do I love her?

When Laura Flynn was a little girl, her beautiful, dynamic mother, Sally, was the center of her imagination. It wasnt long, however, before Sallys fun-loving side slowly and methodically became absorbed by madness. As Lauras parents divorced and her father struggled to gain custody, Sallys symptoms bloomed in earnest while Laura and her sisters united in flights of fancy of the sort their mother taught them so that they might deflect the danger threatening their fragile family. Set in 1970s San Francisco, Swallow the Ocean is redolent with place. In luminous prose, this memoir paints a most intimate portrait of what might have been a catastrophic childhood had Laura and her sisters not been resilient and determined enough to survive their environment even as they yearned to escape it.
