After reading A Voice Out of Nowhere, I cannot stop thinking about the tragic story and the lessons learned from it. The book is difficult to put down and more difficult to forget. My paradigm regarding the seriously mentally ill has changed forever. A Voice Out of Nowhere places in our laps a responsibility to do more as individuals and as a society. Janice Holly Booth takes us on an intense journey inside the deteriorating mind of a tortured soul. We can clearly see the action needed which may mean the difference between life and death in this case but also in any situation involving untreated mental illness. A riveting read and cautionary tale for our times.
