Barbara Claypole White, though, as it sounds like something I would be interested in reading when life calms down a bit. Here's the synopsis from the back of the book (mine is an uncorrected proof):
Marianne Stokes fled England at seventeen, spiraling into the manic depression that would become her shadow. She left behind secrets, memories, and tragedy; one teen dead, and her first love, Gabriel, badly injured. Three decades later she's finally found peace in the North Carolina recording studio she runs with her husband, Darius, and her almost-daughter, Jade ... until another fatality propels her back across the ocean to confront the long-buried past.
In her picturesque childhood village, the first person she meets is the last person she wants to see again: Gabriel. Now the village vicar, he takes her in without question, and ripples of what if reverberate through both their hearts. As Marianne's mind unravels, Jade and Darius track her down. Tempers clash when everyone tries to help, but only by finding the courage to face her illness can Marianne heal herself and her offbeat family.
I always find books about mental illness fascinating. That, combined with the family secrets thing makes the premise of this book intriguing to me. If you agree, be sure and grab yourself a copy next time you're at the bookstore or library. If you've read Echoes of Family, what did you think?
