Book of the Year Award nomination from ForeWord Magazine
“This eloquent book is a gift to women who know what it means to be depressed–and to those who care about them. It’s filled with insight, good advice, and moving firsthand accounts that will leave every reader feeling more connected and less alone.”
-Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., author of The Dance of Anger
“In order to break the deafening silence and erase the stigma surrounding depression, we must not only speak, we must speak truth to power. The various stories chronicled in Lauren Dockett’s insightful book, The Deepest Blue, do exactly that. They prove once again that while medical science may offer life-saving treatments for this mysterious sadness and pain, it is always the love, compassion and experiential wisdom of others that will truly inspire, revive and, ultimately, save the human spirit.”
-Meri Nana-Ama Danquah, author of Willow Weep for Me: A Black Woman’s Journey Through Depression
Translated editions include Mulheres Que Enfretam a Depressao (Portuguese through Nova Era), Hebrew and Korean.
