Only 8 Days Until the Book Release to the Public!
My book, Voice of Suicide, Voice of Hope, A Mother and Son Speak Through the Silence, is due to be released July 21. Stay tuned to this blog in the days to come to find out how you can obtain your copy. Here is a brief synopsis of the book:
You’re a survivor of the loss of someone you’ve loved who has taken his or her own life. Your grief is unbearable and you need a hand to hold on to so you don’t feel so alone.
The author, a mother whose only son took his own life, journeys with you through the grief. She breaks through the silence that so often accompanies suicide and gives voice to her son’s depression and pain, with honesty and compassion. Mother and son reveal the story of Tim’s younger life, the bullying he encountered and the concussion he suffered. Her son speaks with clarity from one who suffers with mental illness. Through his voice he tells you what depression feels like. Together mother and son open a window for you to see both beauty and pain colliding. Their voices are also joined with other mothers who speak for their sons, the grief that they are encountering, but also the hope that emerges through the pain.
My prayer is that you may be touched by my son’s story and will most of all find hope.
Embracing that HOPE,
