Imagine a man, no stupider or thoughtless than anyone else you might meet.
He struggles with depression and the denial which is so often its travelling companion, and this takes him on a downward spiral which sucks so many others into his wake.
No fall from grace happens to just one person; the high velocity spatter of a life suddenly in ruins touches everyone and no one is ever the same again.
Not everyone crashes and burns in his headlong flight; some are collateral damage and boy, do they deserve it! Some are hurt but can limp away, to carry on lives which are not worse, just different. Others gain knowledge, perspective, and another layer of skin, making them more fit for the rest of their lives.
Love, betrayal, lies and secrets pave the road of good intentions - just as life is never all dark or all light, Downward is peopled with those you will want to slap, those you want to applaud, and those who you just want to hug until you make it better. From the time that tiny pebble starts the avalanche until all lies in chaos at the bottom of the mountain, this book will hold you tight and may never let you go.
