Fiction. Horror. Women's Studies. MOTHER WALKED INTO THE LAKE, Alana I. Capria's second novel, merges fantasy, feminism, and horror into a brilliant but disturbing allegory on motherhood and mental illness. The story follows three children who come face-to-face with the consequences of their Mother's drowning. The novel explores the complicated nature of Motherhood and how women uniquely carry this onus of self- sacrifice, responsibility, and all- consuming love.
