Host: “All I want is a life. …My own life!” (Lola, Party of Eight Book 2):
(June 4, 2016)
Two arms, two legs, ten fingers, ten toes. One brain, seven alter egos and one host. Sometimes, the numbers just don’t add up. After more than thirty years in a mental hospital, dissociative identity disorder patient Lola Murray thought she’d finally silenced the voices. But it doesn’t take long for Lola to realize her alters are back. This time, they refuse to be silenced. After months of lying dormant, Lola’s seven alters are determined to be heard by the world.
Will Lola be strong enough to reclaim her life? Or, will she once again allow her alters to take charge?
Her Kinda Crazy:
Take a few unhappy couples. Add broken hearts, anger, envy, betrayal, and hope. Stir continuously for 50-minutes. Simmer and repeat. Soon, lives collide in yet another of Dr. Katherine Murphy’s group therapy sessions. Who will bubble over this week? Might it even be Murphy, who struggles with her own relationship demons? Sometimes it’s not about a happy ending; it’s all about the crazy journey.
Alters (Lola, Party of Eight #1):
Meet Lola Murray—and the seven other personalities who live in her head…
A patient at the Rosewood Hospital for Mental Wellness, Lola struggles to cope with Dissociative Identity Disorder—or as she calls the many egos, alters.
Their names are Maria, Tim, Clare, Zoe, Frog, Rabbit, and Samantha—all ranging in age, gender, and with wildly different personalities. But with five women and two men battling to live their lives through Lola, it’s only a matter of time before someone wins…
Therapy sessions threaten the survival of the group…
With the help of Lola’s therapist, she’s able to better understand the many personalities living in her head. They are like life-long friends, and their presence is all Lola has ever known. Without them, she’d be in this big world all by herself, and that is even more paralyzing than the alternative her doctor has suggested—merge all seven personalities into one, dominant Lola.
Fifty-one years is long enough…
With release from the hospital coming up fast, Lola’s alters scramble to prevent being erased. But after fifty-one years of hosting their lives while struggling for her own—when will it be her turn to live? Lola has to consider life outside of the institution. Friends, a job, and maybe even romance—how will she function with so many people making choices for her?
As her first act of independence, Lola must decide. Will she live the rest of her life as herself, or as Lola, party of eight?
