Birds Without Wings
Based on a true story, Birds Without Wings chronicles the memory of eleven-year-old Reesa as she and her three siblings 'Joyce, the voice of reasoning; Pat, the rebel; and Walter, the protector' are propelled into a world of abuse. Their father's love puts them in harm's way. Their stepmother's ignorance and silent frustration imprisons them. Their mother's vulnerabilities bruise their souls and scar their hearts. The ransom for their souls has a price tag that no one can quantify. Their cries are echoes that cannot be heard. They are four helpless birds looking through the windows of their souls, awaiting their way of escape to freedom.
