Review My faith in Miriam Toews as a writer has been completely restored in this loving tribute to her father who suffered from Manic Depression and eventually took his own life.

He was such an accomplished school teacher and well loved and respected as a pillar of a small Mennonite community in Manitoba.

Miriam is writing her father, Mel's life as she imagines he would have told it. Her writing is graceful, respectful and compassionate. It is a moving account of the awful struggles of a terrible illness.


I won a copy of this book through a giveaway on Goodreads. At the time I received it, I couldn't remember having signed up for it, or why I might have, although after having read the back cover description it seemed fitting that I should win this. I too lost my father to suicide, and Miriam's writing mirrored a lot of what we went through, things my dad said (or didn't say). That same helplessness, the feeling of not being good enough, or not having done enough for the people in his life, was so familiar. And though we struggled to understand, just as Miriam and her family did, it was not enough to break through the devastating paralysis of depression.

This book was very moving. I don't know that I would have ever come across it had I not won it, but I will now share it with people who have experienced similar tragedies in their lives.
