Christian Mark, a graduate of Northeastern University and an avid writer and reader, has completed his new book “The Golden Child”: a riveting tale about a family’s heartbreaking choices involving their daughter and her mental health.

According to Mark, “This book is dedicated to the loyal people who look after our mentally challenged citizens. They include doctors, lawyers, nurses, social workers, aids, and maintenance people. You know who you are.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Christian Mark’s intriguing work is about the McGilvery Family, who after trying and failing to have a child, the McGilvery's seek out a child through a state adoption service. Fortune smiles upon them, and a beautiful, blond eighteen-month-old girl becomes available. The family welcomes her with open arms.

When Adolescence hits, the family's world begins to crumble. The girl, Anne, starts to act out and her studies and life begin to deteriorate. There is constant friction in the household, and the parents don't know if her behavior is caused by drugs or something much deeper. Over the course of a couple of years, her behavior deteriorates to the point that the state has to step in and commit Anne to a mental health setting.

Years later the family's son, now Anne's guardian, stumbles across documents that open up a Pandora's box of deceit, malpractice, and mismanagement by the state in the adoption of Anne. The McGilvery's son decides to take the situation to the next level, not knowing the ramifications of his actions.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “The Golden Child” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
