Bricks in the Wall (1997) is Margaret's debut singer-songwriter album about a woman's experiences with domestic violence. It encompasses many of the emotions and difficulties a woman must face, from leaving the relationship to gaining custody of her child. Ultimately it is a reflection on love, loss, and gaining the strength and wisdom to move forward. The CD is sold with a DVD of the Bricks in the Wall music video, and $3.00 from each album sale goes toward funding Margaret's SAFE through the Arts program for the prevention and awareness of domestic violence for middle school students.
