I would NOT recommend this book.
While having a parent or close relative with depression increases the likelihood of other family members to have it, it was as though the patriarch, John’s, illness caused the entire family to be dysfunctional.
It seems as though the author took exceptional liberty to make all of the family members to be as far from conventional as possible. It had a very somber mood throughout, with very little joy at all.
I would rather spend time reading books that are more uplifting and show some levity.
Too much of a downer for my taste.
