This book took courage and deep experiences of pain to write. The world should be appreciative of what it represents. A mother and daughter, Cinda and Linea Johnson chronicle Linea's descent into her diagnosis of bipolar disorder. The journey is so deep and dark and all encompassing. The most compelling moments are tender, where mother and daughter reflect on the power of mental ill-health and the unabashed reality and power of love. This book is a necessary tool for the public as the helplessness and utter ugliness this disorder inflicts on its victims. Moving, tear provoking and a true page turner, this book is truly a gift coming from a place that many have experienced but few are able to bring to the public sphere.
