This was a different kind of book, that's for sure. It dealt with postpartum depression and psychosis. It covered a lot of basis that would actually be informative to any person. However I found the book other than informative, a bit boring. So unfortunately it didn't capture my attention or any emotions I could relate to.

Lucy and Ricardo married after a brief fling because she was pregnant. After a difficult time settling into millionaire Ricardo's lifestyle, when the baby was born, Lucy went a little haywire.

Desperate, Lucy ran away, telling Ricardo she wanted to be free and giving him the baby.

Now, over six months later, cured of the particularly bad episode of post-natal depression, Lucy wa

I read this book a while ago but the story stayed with me so I decided to read it again. I found it just as heartbreaking on the second read.

This is heartbreaking story about postpartum depression. The h’s story was wonderfully handled. The H was understandably upset in thinking the worst about the h. He had no idea what she was going through. I appreciated that the h took herself away and sought treatment before something horrific happened. Anything to keep her son safe. That’s what m

I loved this book has years running down my face when you've experienced post metal depression you feel the characters pain and understand the true depth of love for your child but scared kyoull just them. Walker deals with this matter in such a sensitive way but doesn't trivialize depression. I love love loved it

Interesting story that dealt a little with the heroine's postpartum depression/postnatal depression.

I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home. I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five—all girls—in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on.

Even before I could write I was making up s
