If you have read my book, Crazy Love, then you might already know that I advocate for mental illness. I am pulled in my own reading towards books with a psychological twist, and in my new thrillers I weave it into the threads of the stories. I was eager to get my hands on this one, knowing the history behind it. I picked it up, not sure what to expect, but found myself drawn in and totally fascinated. This book is a page turner. A realistic account of one family’s struggles as a young man descends into mental illness. The struggle is real, and so relatable I found myself hugging my young son just a little tighter after reading it. The depth of the emotions in the mother and her son were heavy, real, and I felt them. I felt the pain and I hurt with them.
This book is an award winner that is for sure. I have never read anything that so clearly explained what it is like to fall into an illness like this, and the effects it has on those around them. Read this book. It’s a game changer. This book is currently available for preorder on Amazon here.
