Publisher's Summary

If I could make it to the bridge, the pain would stop. I just had to make it to the bridge, and the hopelessness would end. It became a refrain, running over and over in my head as I raced down the highway. Make it to the bridge, and the pain will end. It's hopeless. Just wanna die. Make it to the bridge. When I finally reached the highest point of the Tower Drive Bridge, I pulled over and stopped the car. I was so calm, so sure. I knew this was the right thing to do, and there was peace as I opened the door, stepped out, and walked around my car toward the guardrail. As I reached the concrete barrier, I heard someone calling out to me. "Ma'am! Ma'am!" I ignored him as I took a deep breath...and jumped.

Very Honest!

This book is very clear and concise regarding what the author is going through. It helps me to better understand what was going on with post partum depression. It also gave a clear account of the childs perspective on child sexual abuse. This book will help many feel less alone.

I highly recommend this book to women and men.
