       Additional Information  
     
      Deborah Adams' All The Hungry Mothers features nanny-for-hire Janet Ayres, who discovers the eccentricities of Jesus Creek, Tennessee, when she begins her duties in the Leach's disorderly antebellum mansion. She is reluctantly drawn into the chaotic lives of her employer and the desperate battered women and children who temporarily live together there. Janet finds solace in the apparent normalcy of the nuclear family living next door until that happy home is invaded by demons. Human drama is vividly portrayed as Janet investigates this puzzling phenomenon. The murder of the abusive husband of one of the shelter's former residents leads Janet to question whether her neighbors' paralyzing fear might be caused by a more tangible form of evil. Domestic violence is poignantly explored as this tantalizing mystery unfolds. As the answers are revealed, Janet Ayers and Jesus Creek are changed forever.
