Beyond the Edge
One Woman’s Journey out of Post-Natal Depression and Anxiety
by Hazel Rolston
Publisher:IVP(Inter Varsity Press)
In the introduction to her book, Helen Rolston writes about the time she felt pushed ‘beyond the edge’ of her endurance. This is the story of her struggle through post-natal depression, but not only that, the illness of her baby daughter, and the realisation that her depressive state originated way back in her Belfast childhood at the time of the ‘Troubles’. We travel with her as she tells the story of her life, her marriage and the birth of Katherine. Yet through all her trials and traumas one truth shines through, ‘God is there even if our feelings say the opposite. No matter how bad things feel, God is faithful to his wounded and broken people.’ A heart-warming message in a very readable book.
