What My Body RemembersBook - 2017
Ella Nygaard, 27, has been a ward of the state since she was 7 years old, the night her father murdered her mother. She doesn't remember anything about that night - but her body remembers. The PTSD-induced panic attacks she now suffers incapacitate her for days. After one particularly bad episode lands Ella in a psych ward, she discovers her son, Alex, has been taken from her by the state and placed with a foster family. Driven by desperation, Ella kidnaps Alex and flees to the seaside town in northern Denmark where she was born, where she is forced to confront the demons of her childhood.
