How to Enjoy Life with Bipolar Disorder By Ann Latta Donnan Review



This is the story of a twelve year old girl who comes down with a severe mental illness that is not correctly diagnosed for seven years. She cycles through chaotic manias and debilitating depressions until she is hospitalized four times and diagnosed as Bipolar. 

Then she begins a long road to recovery and a fulfilled and happy life. She describes the illness as terrifying and all consuming. Most of all she had no control over when it would invade her live and devastatingly rock her world. 

In 1969 lithium was first used in the United States and it proved to be a miracle drug for Ann and for many others. Hospitalization and therapy were required. Ann worked hard with her doctors and therapists and now leads a triumphant life.

About the Author
Ann was raised in Pacific Palisades, California. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture and worked for four architects in her twenties then taught high school for twentyfive years. She is married and living in Southern California. She has two children and two grandchildren. She is working on a biography of her three brothers and a study on dreaming.


I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Reading about Ann and her struggle to survive with a mental illness was very hard.  I know so many people who deal with the same situations and some who have suffered through worse.  Being misdiagnosed or never getting help affects so many people in the world and others are too scared to get help.  I hope that through this story more people can be inspired.  I think the author was very brave to come forward and share something so intense and heartfelt. 


The Little Farm in the Big Valley By Eric Weidler Review



The Little Farm in the Big Valley By Eric Weidler 
   ISBN: 978-1-51440-193-4
  Available in softcover, hardcover, e-book
  Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Xlibris

First there was Little House, then there was Little Farm. Laura Ingalls Wilder's saga continues into the twentieth century with The Little Farm in the Big Valley: a story for baby boomers and other generations as well!

GO into the mind of the child in this childhood memoir. 
SEE the "play" and the "work" among three generations in the rural heartland of America. 
GO along with the boys on their country adventures. 
SEE how things unfold as their family grows.
Here is a memoir of a childhood like many others and, still, unique in its setting. With the disappearance of small farms, the generation's' way of life disappears as well. It is only to be recalled by the written word and forms of media. Such is the purpose of the author, Eric Weidler, who thoroughly relates his early years on that "little farm."

I recevied a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's review-  The story is not only true, but will truly capture your heart. If you are a certain age and even a bit older the book will really connect well.   It has a sense of nostalgia as well as a great story. The author has a genuine writing style.
