Is Your Family Dysfunctional?
This highly emotional novel follows six generations of one family from the eighteen hundreds to the present. The main thrust of the story revolves around Jacob and Esther, their unabashed love for one-another, and their total lack of love, care, and nurturing of four children whom they brought into the world. The novel chronicles life and death, passionate love, rape and incest, childbirth and abortion, open heart surgery and more, including some fun and fascinating experiences;
"As you start your journey through these pages, you will accept it is pure fiction, a narrative of sorts," Singer writes in the book's forward. "There is a saying, however, that truth is stranger than fiction and this story will make that adage come to life for you, because everything you read happened."

About The Author
Jacque Lynn Singer was born in Hartford, Connecticut in the early nineteen-forties, moved to Central California to complete high school and college and is now retired in Southern Nevada. She received her bachelors and masters degrees in education through the California State University system and dedicated forty years of her life to teaching basically sixth, seventh, and eighth graders and trying to help them find their niches in life; five of the forty years were spent teaching for a virtual school in Nevada where she also worked as a home school counselor. One of the CTIIP grants received by Ms. Singer while teaching language arts in California allowed her to give students the opportunity to read, story tell, and act while being videotaped which greatly enhanced the students' writing styles. Although she has no other published books, she has written innumerable poems for friends and family. She also built and published a website which provides immeasurable resources for students in grades kindergarten through high school. Her family consists of her wonderful husband James, three sons, ages thirty-five to fifty-two, seven grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.
