The story of Nora is one that I must admit touched my heart on many different levels. Her struggle with her issues is one that is universally known but sadly not so well understood. I spent most of my time reading this book with tears in my eyes as I can relate to her tale of woe. Whilst not on the level that Nora went through I too have been to the darker side of the human psyche after a relationship break up and then the death of someone close.
I loved all of the characters that she brought to life in this wonderful tale. I would have to say that my favourite of all of them was Pops as I had a grandfather like that as a youngster so reading about him brought back fond memories. I had tears streaming down my face when he told Nora where her name came from. Even the character Darren that changed her life forever was one I could relate to, in fact I could imagine these people living in my street.
I believe that everyone should read this book at least once in their life as it deals with a subject that a lot of people run from when it is brought to light. To understand the thoughts of someone that is suffering depression I believe is very important. Having said that the depression subject is only one aspect of the story it was also a story of how true friends and family pull together through thick and thin no matter what issues arise. I only have one other sibling so reading about all those noisy males warmed my heart.
This is one story that will get a re-read from me at some stage in the future, and if you choose to take the time and read it I am sure that you will not be disappointed.
