    Some children inherit the family nose. Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to the suicides of their mother and grandfather. Autumn was in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch by the time she was 22. Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying that his family feared for their lives.

    What other book might you compare A Promise of Hope to and why?

    I honestly have never read any book like this. It is one of a kind to me.

    I haven't listened to her before but she was perfect for this book bc she knew exactly what to say & how to say it bc they were her words.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One girls struggle within the darkness of mental illness.


    Any additional comments?

    I have too much to say about this book but not enough time to write it.
    It is her story, her truth, her peace & the families legacy.
    I stumbled upon this book in audible when looking for different books about bipolar & bpd to add to my collection of hundreds of self help books that I haven't read. I read the summary & thought yeah ok in regards to the cure but another part of me was curious when I listened to the sample bc she is very detailed & precise & passionate.
    This is the first & only book I have read/listened to its entirety since high school bc I usually get distracted & bored.
    But this book relates to everything about my life bc of my struggle with my thoughts, feelings, emotions & behaviors.
    It brought me a sigh of relief to know that I am not the only one w/ some of these very valid concerns & thoughts she mentioned.
    I also value all of the truth she wrote about the relationships with her mother & how she saw her & what she hoped as a child bc I not only have been there growing up w/ a bipolar alcoholic abusive & angry father but most importantly I am a mother so it really reminded me of a child's perspective & how my 5 yr old son & 2 yr old daughter will not be able to understand or comprehend some of my behaviors or emotions & it is crucial that I remind them when I am angry that it isn't their fault.. They are precious & I love them no matter what my mood may be today or tomorrow nothing can change my heart.
    I know that when people meet me & I am in an angry or depressed mood they will probably think that I am miserable or that I hate my life when in fact it is so far from the truth I love every blessing in my life it is only hard to love myself bc of the thoughts & feelings I have..
    I really do thank Autumn for this book bc there are so many things I will remember for the rest of my life & to know that there are certain nutrients that could just be missing from my diet which can help me is just icing on the cake.
    Thank you for adding to my hope & my faith!
