A true account of the author’s journey through mental illness and alcoholism brought on through an abusive upbringing that included her loss of a parent at an early age, physical, mental and sexual abuse at the hands of relatives, and her own encounters with mental illness within the family. This highly detailed narrative takes the reader on her journey, through decades of dealing with the effects of the abuse, but ultimately seeking recovery. For those experiencing a similar type of pain, Flight Into Sanity will leave the reader with a promise of hope. The author discovers that human beings have the ability to heal from unbelievable pain and suffering. However, the healing does not come easy. There is much hard work, possibly additional pain and suffering, and the re-experiencing of events. This healing cannot be achieved in a vacuum. The author describes how she reached out for help and was able to get that through people that she trusted. Today, the author is able to reflect back on her experiences and share her story in the hope that a light will shine for others on their path to healing and recovery.
John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, "'Flight Into Sanity' is a powerful story of abuse, survival, recovery and then eventual triumph. These stories will stay with the reader for a very long time. Just as an example, in one chapter alone is the author’s account of ‘Terry: Twenty-eight days’ –simply masterful writing.”
