Life is beautiful for young Mia McDaniel, living with her two loving parents and her younger brother in their Long Island home. All of this is thrown into chaos, however, when she learns just before her fifth birthday that her older cousin, Anna, will be leaving Israel following the tragic death of her father and coming to live with Mia's family. Little did either girl know that what would happen next in that idyllic suburban home would irrevocably mark all of those involved.

A piercing memoir of the real-life consequences born of living in a toxic household with a horrible secret, My Father's Burning in Hell examines the lies and terrors that can destroy a home and the resolute strength inside all of us to find our own happiness in the wreckage.
