"When I lost my fifteen-year old daughter to suicide I thought my own world would end. But what I learned about love and forgiveness changed my life forever. It will change yours, too."
Raw and honest, the author shares her painful past: an abusive alcoholic father, a failed marriage, the rejection of being a lesbian, and her own brush with suicide. What could have been a story mired in self-pity and misery, ultimately is a story of hope. Nina's compelling life journey shows how pain and loss can be transformed into strength and purpose. This book is not only for survivors but for anyone facing depression with suicidal tendencies.
The book has garnered outstanding reviews from suicide prevention organizations, expert psychiatrists, best-selling authors on suicide, mental health and parenting magazines, as well as grief recovery organizations. Once The Storm Is Over apologetically rips apart the façade of coping to show the devastating aftermath of a child's suicide and how a mother, flawed but courageous, learns to live again. Described as brave, insightful and inspiring, this book is sure to make its mark in the literature of suicide recovery, and be remembered for its profound and healing message.
