When I wake up in the middle of the night, it’s not a sound that disturbs me. It’s a feeling. Silently, I creep to my daughter’s room, breathing a sigh of relief when I see her sleeping, her night-light twirling, butterfly shapes moving their pink wings. Quickly, I lock the door. I won’t let anything happen to my little girl. You tell him everything. The husband you adore, the father of your child, your best friend. He knows, just by looking at your sage-green eyes, when something is wrong. The two of you can communicate with a glance, or a touch of the hand. Except what if you can’t? What if your happy marriage has plastered over one huge lie? A lie you have even started to believe yourself, in order to survive? What if you have a secret, something you have hidden from your beloved husband and your strawberry-scented baby girl, to keep them safe? What if the guilt has kept you up, night after night, for as long as you can remember? Because, after twenty-eight years, that secret is refusing to stay buried. The past you have tried so desperately to outrun is catching up with you. A faded photograph, torn in half, threatens to expose the truth and everyone you love, everything you cherish, is in harm’s way… An emotional, thought-provoking and beautifully written novel which examines the pieces of ourselves we are afraid of, and the impossible decisions we make when we are desperate. Fans of Jodi Picoult, Kerry Fisher and Liane Moriarty will be moved by this heartbreaking tale. Readers absolutely love The Life She Left Behind: ‘Oh my... This was literally “un-put-downable”...

Hi, my name is Aine Rutherford. I am now seventeen years old I started writing my book about my journey with depression in 2016 when I was 15. This book is about my teenage years with depression and bipolar disorder. I am writing this book to hopefully help someone out there and give them a big reminder they are not alone! I myself am a very talkative person when I’m in the right frame of mind. I love all my animals and I love my music. I suffered with depression now 6 years and I had my fair share of unwanted thoughts such as suicidal thoughts and thoughts about hating myself. This book is for helping someone out. Making someone smile or giggle at me and with me a bit and making them not feel so alone.
‘I always knew I was somewhat different without knowing exactly how. My earliest memory is being given a doll on my third birthday. One day around that time I am looking at a picture of a deer when it turns and runs towards me. There is a cushion with a peacock on it, it comes straight out at me. A woman in a painting turns her head to look at me, her eyes staring into mine until I squeak and run out of the room. It does not matter where I am – at home, my grandparent’s house or my aunt’s – pictures and paintings move around and then right themselves as soon as I attempt to show anyone. Whenever a picture turns itself into a television, I drag an adult by the hand to show them the magic painting, only to look like a liar when it fails to perform. I finally catch one in the act; my grandad John and I stand in front of the deer painting while it shakes its head and slowly stalks forward. “The deer isn’t moving, Nicola; it’s just your imagination,” he tells me. Next, come the voices.’
Hello, I'm Jerry, army vet and a recovering addict. I wrote this book to help me stay sober but realized that if it could help keep a hopeless addict like myself sober then why wouldn't it help others? I have been blessed with another chance at life and so can you. I have tried to break down the addiction matrix, how addiction affects your mind and the tricks is uses to manipulate us to keep us in active addiction. We all know how dangerous that sweet voice of addiction can be, we've listened to it over and over again. The hardest step (to me) towards recovery was the very first step, admitting that I was a real addict and that I could not, would not, control my usage. I have broke down things that are helping me but we're all wired differently so you have to find what works for you. Thank you for reading this book and if you liked it please leave feedback or comments. Thank you and good luck!!
