A reporter chases the biggest story of her life-her husband's descent
into mental illness. Even as a reporter, Sheila Hamilton missed the signs
as her husband David's mental illness unfolded before her. By the time
she had pieced together the puzzle, it was too late. Her brilliant
partner was dead within six weeks of a diagnosis of bipolar disorder,
leaving his nine-year-old daughter and wife without so much as a note to
explain his actions, a plan to help them recover from their grief, or a
solution for the hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt that they
would inherit from him. All the Things We Never Knew takes readers from
David and Sheila's romance through the last three months of their life
together and into the year after his death.
It details their unsettling descent from into the world of mental illness, and examines the fragile line between stability and chaos. Now, a decade after David's death, Sheila and her daughter, Sophie, have learned the power of choosing life over retreat; let themselves love and trust again; and understand the importance of forgiveness. Their story will resonate with all those who have loved someone who suffers from mental illness.
