The Book - #1 Bestseller

Divorcing Oedipus is a whirlwind page turner about the lives of an American family, struggling with mental illness, power, and greed.


M. Ophelia’s hilarious narrative, about the pitfalls of a wife trying to live her life to please others and getting gobsmacked for her efforts, is a riveting, realistic story of a powerless wife and mother navigating an elitist Alaskan family, who employ their excessive resources to destroy her.


Will she recoil in retreat?

Or will she make lemonade out of lemons?

stands up for herself

without knowing it possibly,

without claiming it,

she stands up for all women.
