I was so inspired by this story of love, courage and steadfastness which came shining through the struggle of Emme and Phil and their family. Clinical Depression is such an insidious, potentially life threatening illness and Emme and Phils' courageous and honest willingness to share their story can help and encourage many millions of couples and families. It is an astonishingly candid and clear description of the suffering felt by both people when depression is present in a relationship. They perservered through many different treatments and allow us to feel not only their moments of despair and anguish, but more importantly, their hope, joy and love for each other. This is a story of the triumph of the human spirit and it is an illuminating window into the reality of day to day dealing with the illness that is depression. -- Tipper Gore

I also don't relate to the religious aspects of this book or this couple. Save your money.
Emme and Phil obviously have an amazing relationship that helped both of them get through their ordeal. As they explain, most people just don't "get it" when the darkness of depression affects a previously full-functioning person. This is why their story is one to read. Emme's support and efforts to be part of Phil's journey--rather than giving up on him--is an inspiration.
If you read this book, you will breathe an air of optimism and hope that is sorely lacking in most first-hand accounts of emotional disability.
Together Phil and Emme have journeyed to dark places that unfortunately others must traverse, but as Phil eloquently states, "Our goal is to reassure readers...that they are not alone, or crazy, or without hope..." This is a book not only of a triumph over depression, but a triumph of love.

I especially like the way the story is told, alternating from Emme's perspective to Phil's, surrounding the same events and periods of time. You get to see depression from the afflicted person's vantage point as well as the caregivers' who are afflicted in their own way. The writing is crisp and articulate...you can't put it down... and conjures a frightening vision of what it is like to be in the midst of such an horrific crisis...and then come out the other side better and stronger. It's nothing short of inspiring.
Phil and Emme have a way of encapsulating large ideas in a simple phrase that can't help but stick in one's mind to carry and help others: "Don't do something permanent about a temporary problem", "You don't just snap out of depression. It's a disease. Do you just snap out of cancer or heart disease?"
If you have suffered from depression yourself or have been touched by this disease through a parent, an uncle or aunt, a grandparent, a friend, a child, a spouse, a co-worker, a teammate, a girlfriend or boyfriend, a classmate...don't walk, run to read this book. It provides uncommon clarity for what has become a global health crisis.
