"Act of God" by Jill Ciment

In — “the Arts”— people with mental illness tend to be depicted as being either: peculiar, funny, grotesque, strange or even downright dangerous. Mental Illness has earned a bad reputation thanks, in small part, to “the Arts.” Is it any wonder then that anyone with a mental illness keeps it to themselves like the protagonist — Isabelle of the Moon and Stars —does? S.A. Jones, the author of this fine novel, has gone to great lengths to portray mental illness as it really is. And is it neither funny, grotesque, strange nor dangerous. Nor is it the Whole of someone, it’s a Part of them. It is however for Isabelle, debilitating and scary. But certainly nothing to be ashamed of or defined by. Fictionalizing Mental Illness is extremely hard — it doesn’t conform to a textbook narrative, maybe that’s why it’s easier to fall into the trap of misrepresenting it — yet here in Isabelle of the Moon and Stars, S.A. Jones, has been hugely successful as the story, told in beautiful prose, rings true and doesn’t compromise or degrade Isabelle’s mental health issues in any way. A great read.

From the moment I read the opening paragraph, I was irresistibly drawn into this remarkable novel written by S.A Jones. The descriptions of places and events are well-crafted resulting in vivid imagery that accompanies a bold and beautiful story about love, relationships, pain, confusion, and what it takes to face the dark places of depression.

Depression is often viewed as a dark topic but that doesn’t mean that Isabelle of the Moon and Stars is a dark, depressing novel. The opposite in fact. It is a novel that explores what it means to have depression with sensitivity and insight coupled with humour, strength, courage, resolve, love and friendship. There are wonderful moments of tenderness and developing trust in Isabelle’s friendship with Mrs Graham; there is passion, desire, disappointment and mortification in her relationship with Jack; there is a deep solid friendship and blossoming love with Evan; and there is reflection and unification within herself.

Isabelle of the Moon and Stars was a joyous book to read. The prose was beautiful, heartfelt and kept a steady pace. I was immediately drawn into Isabelle’s life from the first delightfully written paragraph right through to the last. It is an immensely satisfying novel from a very talented Australian author.
