This book is like a roller-coaster, it chronicles the many twists and turns, high points and low points of Celias extraordinary life. Celia is a very strong woman, there have been many distressingly sad events in her life, from suicide and alcoholism to the deaths of family members and the effects of having ECT a horrific and some say inhumane treatment for depression, yet after all this she is still full of courage and drive. There are precious few publishers who are willing to publish books like this. Yet this book is Celia’s life, the pain of the author, and the facts of her life just make you want to reach out and it is important that people are able to read this fascinating and heavily emotional memoir. It is with pleasure that Chipmunka publishes her book.

    This is a story is a journey, many twists and turns, from depression to grief – the author has suffered a lot and to put it down on paper is inspiring
