Synopsis

Based on a true story, A House Divided: Suspicions of Mother-Daughter Incest tells the emotionally harrowing tale of a mother’s fight to retain custody of her daughter amid horrifying accusations of mother-daughter incest.

Searching for the truth behind these accusations, while reconstructing this troubling tale from case interviews, trial transcripts, police reports, and other documentary sources, the authors find in this unusual case an ideal springboard for a serious consideration of the legal and psychological issues underlying the assessment and prosecution of incest cases, in particular of mother-daughter incest.

A House Divided
serves as a vivid reminder of the legal, moral, and social complexities surrounding cases involving sex crimes.
