Thanks to everyone who has read Lilac Hill in its draft stages.
Many readers have made the comment that Sarah reminds them of themselves as she copes with overwhelming anxiety. Her routines were developed right out of my experiences and observations. The struggle to manage depression and anxiety with or without drugs is a daunting one. Each person has a different reaction to treatment whether chemical or natural.
I added a page to the website that works out some of my motivation to make Sarah grow stronger through the novel. In real life, there are so many more peaks and valleys.
