that such stigmas will soon be erased.Each character in Secret Place, inways than one, had issues They helped to illustrate that when mental health issues plague a familyit plagues not only the one with the diagnosis but all of the family Gideon described his depression as a dark fog His yo yo behavior and the shame that he felt had a serious impact on his family and his occupation Charisma and Madelyn was well acquainted with mental illness because it plagued their respective families Other members attempted to dismiss it as something insignificant This book was a slow read and at various intervals it appeared disjointed I loved that it wasn t preachy and that there were the use of scripture The author was able to depict the characters seeking refuge in order to get through She also incorporated the importance of medical personnel Incorporating the importance of medical personnel does not diminish or mean that those affected don t believe in God Self care can best be administered when a clear diagnosis and knowledge is known Charisma is married to Gideon Joel, a psychiatrist known for his work with mental illness Gideon becomes depressed and takes a medical leave from his job

by Leslie J Sherrod is a very good book Mental illness is rarely a topic, if ever, touched upon in African American communities and should not be continuously looked over as it is not prone to just other races Secret Place is such a powerful read, I m at a loss for words At times the book does read a little slow, but when it picks up, it s magnificent I especially enjoyed the bible scriptures Secret Place is an excellent read that I highly recommend Reviewed by Carmen It took me forever to read this book, only because I would never really get started lol Anywho, it was great and an evenwonderful thing is that I found out that May when I finally finished reading the book was National Mental Health Month Very appropriate and I could not have planned it if I d tried The book was title appropriately because it was a secret for all of them Madalyn was horrible and in so much denial She really needed help herself One day she will have to face the awf It took me forever to read this book, only because I would never really get started lol Anywho, it was great and an evenwonderful thing is that I found out that May when I finally finished reading the book was National Mental Health Month Very appropriate and I could not have planned it if I d tried The book was title appropriately because it was a secret for all of them Madalyn was horrible and in so much denial She really needed help herself One day she will have to face the awful truth If the book were real I really did not figure out how April caused the accident I know it was a dark basement and all but did she drop the glass and Miles fell on it I am very glad Gideon finally decided to get some help and not continue to try and do it on his own and faith I am not downing faith by any means but sometimes God will use other means such as doctors and medicine I think it washis pride, he did not want to go the the Dr for fear that the psychiatric community would find out Anyway it was an awesome read [ Download Pdf ] ♶ Secret Place ♷ Charisma has the perfect life, with a doctor husband, Gideon, whom she adores, a secure home in suburban Balti and a wonderful daughter, April But there s a secret part of Gideon that s about to unravel as it threatens to ruin all their lives Gideon suffers from depression and his subsequent leave from his job and the loss of income uproots them to a less desirable neighborhood where the family begins to deteriorate Gideon s not getting the help he needs, and there aren t enough prayers Charisma can say to get things back on track When an encounter with a neighboring family, also struggling with the mental health of one of its members, results in a horrifying crisis, will they at last come to terms with the real problem Very good so far Main characters Charisma and Dr Gideon are married he was once an esteemed psychologist but now he suffering from severe depression They both suffer because he refuses to get treatment Both claim to have Faith but seem to deny all help He sends them I m half way through I think it would be a better story if the author would stick to just their story but she adds too much drama with other off the wall characters. I liked the idea of the story, but I didn t really like the plot I like the fact that mental illness was addressed in this book since it is a very real issue, even in the Christian community I did not like that fact that the series of events in the story were too outlandish to be relatable It also seemed to me that most of the characters in the story were a little touched I like how the story ended, all was well. The book was a series of events just waiting for disaster to strike, thanks to the prologue The struggles are very real The ending was sort of abrupt with no real explanation or follow through on some of the issues If you re going to do a happily ever after, please show us the process of getting there That was the main thing this book was lacking. Secret Place by Leslie Sherrod gives readers a glimpes into a family dealing with mental illness The main characters not only dealt with it in her past but it seemed to following her in her marriage Depression happens to many individuals, some get help and some do not know how to reach out for help Secret Place can be a lesson for everyone I recommend this book to others. Awesome Read
