Editorial Reviews


In Sunflowers, Melodie Starkey has written a story that brings her characters tolife, with all the challenges that life offers. Single male parenthood, tangledand negative family relationships, lost and then realized motherhood ... eachcharacter's demons and delights are very well cultivated in this poignant novel.Issues addressed through the story line are right to life, abandonment, parentalrights, bipolar disorder, and economic disparity. The author deals with mentalillness and its effects on individuals and families with empathy, knowledge, anddepth. The children in the story are not just miniature adults, but truechildren, with their own set of emotions and perceptions. This book held myattention for a full day, as I could not put it down and needed to read to theend once started. I would highly recommend this book for readers interested inthe many choices faced by ambivalent expectant parents and families facingmental illness.  --Terry Palardy, Author Multiple Sclerosis,an Enigma
