The Urge To Kill by Sarah Burakoff


The Urge To Kill by Sarah Burakoff

In the 1940's few people ever heard of Postpartum Psychosis. Barbara wanted her three sons, husband, and mother-in-law dead. She wanted to be free from her life of drudgery. The urge to kill her family consumed her frequently. Ed, her husband,was a hardworking truck driver. When her husband was late from work she would pray that he had an accident. She pictured his car hurtling over a cliff to a fiery end and a smile would appear on her face. These were the people she should love most. What possessed her to feel this way? How she copes with this strange urge to kill is told in a surprising story of love, intrigue, and suspense.
