Waking up in the Middle of Nowhere
is a gripping memoir of their journey from the darkness of untreated disease to the light of hope through a combination of love and forgiveness, balanced with spiritual guidance and medical intervention. It is a story of coming to peace with a God who does not always deliver us from our pain and suffering, but who always loves us and strengthens us to help us endure. It is the tale of a family who chose love over selfishness, and hope over fear. For the person who loves someone with Bipolar Disease, this memoir will be a friend in the storm, helping you to hold on until the sun shines through the clouds once again.
