A Memoir of Hope and Healing
Catherine Denton takes you on a journey through her life-before she was born, through her childhood and beyond to the present time. You discover along with her how she came to be diagnosed with bipolar disorder. You feel the pain of her wanting to die, the torn relationships, the desperate search for a way to feel better using every modality that comes across her path.
Then with the mention of one phrase she is catapulted into a restorative model of recovery and wholeness that the ancients knew well but was not easily accepted in these modern times. Walk with Catherine as she discovers a way to get what she desires- Hope & Healing.
