A young woman discovers a dark family secret in this compelling book

A Lamb for the Slaughtering

A Lamb for Slaughtering by Marie Polano Murphy has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Imagine how you would feel if all the people in your life knew the secret and worked to prevent you from discovering it. A Lamb for Slaughtering, by Marie Polano Murphy, tells the true story of Amire, a young woman who was molested as a child. Because Amire was hypnotized after the abuse, she has no memory of it.

As an adult, Amire is reacquainted with a figure from her past. He weaves a web of information about her childhood, leading her to discover her family’s secret but never revealing the truth about his identity. Will Amire be able to assemble the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to recreate her past?

A native of England, Marie Polano Murphy has lived in Auburn, California, for forty-five years. She is a retired widow who enjoys writing poetry; listening to classical, light classical, and opera music; and traveling. She has two children: Matthew Patrick and Margaret Kathleen.

A Lamb for Slaughtering is a 102-page paperback at the retail price of $13.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0152-1. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania.
