High Clear Bell of Morning- Signed 1st Ediiton

£29.99

Product description

Ruby is diagnosed with schizophrenia and her treatment goes awry when she meets a drug dealer in group therapy. He introduces her drugs, and within a short space of time she is ready to do almost anything for a high. Unwilling to let her go, her father, Glen, follows Ruby through the streets, catching glimpses of her horror-filled world. Desperate to comprehend her illness, he finds parallels between Ruby and his job as a marine biologist. In a struggle to get his daughter back, Glen commits an unthinkable act that could cause him to lose everything else that has ever mattered to him. Elegantly told and affecting, High Clear Bell of Morning illustrates the strain on families facing mental illnesses, and draws attention to the inadequate system that is meant to help. At the same time, it celebrates the natural world and sends a cautionary warning of what we all have to lose.

This is in very good condition, it is Signed by the Author twice as it has a note to Sandy & Meg.
