JONATHAN
 LOVEJOY

     Roanoke River

A twelve year old girl is murdered by her mother and father. A truthful and disturbing glimpse at child abuse and molestation in the life of Sarah Maria Iris, as her family descends from the suburban middle class into a life of poverty. Her innocent but insightful voice is the portrait of a child held prisoner by cruel, unloving parents.

Imprisoned and abused before her death, she records the shocking events in letters motivated by fear and depression. Told from the pages of her journal, the story uncovers the tragic home life of Sarah and her older sister Sharon, as they struggle to cope with a sadistic, domineering mother.
