Margo LaGattuta, MFA, and author of Freefalling-Writing without Limits writes:
“Pascaris’s skill with language, ruthless honesty and attention to detail bring us inside the painful lives of Nick and Amy in a way that keeps us engaged, unable to look away. He invites us to see them through to revelation. We discover the strength and resilience of the human spirit and feel blessed to know them.”
Celinda Jungheim, President of Recovery International writes:
“As a long time member of Recovery International (recent name change from Recovery Inc.) and a survivor of serious mental illness I feel that Peter captures the essence and struggle of both the patient and the relative. He wraps all of this into an interesting story of his devotion and frustration. A good read.”
Excerpts of a letter from Jerry and Joanne Goode to the Author:
“ … neither of us wanted to stop and put it down. We not only learned a lot about mental illness from your very up close personal presentation, but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
“It was a gripping story and we want to congratulate you on your wonderful skill and expertise as a writer. You really draw in and involve the writer.”
