Highlighting Depression But Not Depressing
A Handful Of Hope by Elizabeth Maddrey is a contemporary Christian romance and book number four in the Taste Of Romance series. It can however be read as a stand-alone.
Elizabeth Maddrey is a fabulous author and I love all her books. I found A Handful Of Hope to be not only a great read but a very brave and honest one. In it Elizabeth Maddrey tackles the topic of depression.
Depression is often seen as a taboo subject. People who have not suffered may make light of the subject using phrases like ‘snap out of it’. Depression is an illness. It is nothing to be ashamed of or hidden, and like all illnesses it needs treatment. We take pills for headaches therefore it is sensible to take pills for depression.
