Though Danika considers herself to be a person who can cope with anything, she finds herself wondering uneasily, Why was the state of emergency declared back then? Why did my father leave? What happened on that night that no one ever talks about? Only now, with her mother fading away and beyond hearing, are she and her sisters able to break the silence of those difficult years and speak the words that were always left unsaid.

Tom feels he has been unjustly treated by the mental health authorities ever since he was diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic at the tender age of nineteen years. Tom subsequently spent most of his adult life being heavily drugged upon what the psychiatrists refer to as anti-psychotic medication. Despite such huge challenges, Tom has risen up to become a successful artist and writer and he has gained deep spiritual insights into his life. About the AuthorThomas Edward McNeight is a published author on mental health issues. He draws on his background in philosophical studies with the university. He lives in Wanganui, New Zealand, where he writes and paints. And gathers insights into the plight of the mentally ill, amongst his many acquaintances.
