My sister Jean Winter has experienced mental illness since she was 20. She is now 51. The early years in the public health system were hell. It took many years and a switch to the private health system before Jean received the help she needed and was brought back to health. It is still a journey.
This fictional work - Mindshadows - explores Jean's journey through a
very frightening time in her life.
However, the book is not just about despair but also about beauty, love,
hope and the power of humour.
Mindshadows will be officially launched in conjunction with her publisher in the next couple of months but is already available through amazon here.
It is a beautiful book. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will give you a powerful insight into the frightening world of mental illness.
The cover design is also by Jean who is a talented artist.
I'm so proud of her.
