The way in which the author's insight was put into words was wonderful. Often we know what/how we feel but words fail us. Now, I have the words!

I've read Ms. George's book of poetry entitled, Sanctuaerie and found it helpful in understanding depressing. When I came across this book also written by Ms. George, I jumped at the chance to read it. I thought it was very insightful and helped me to understand even more in depth to those who have depression. It showed me how I can do my part to see them through their low times. If anyone wants to learn how to support friends and loved ones dealing with depression, I would highly suggest reading this book.
