    Braveheart, i know lilystar is coming back, but if she dosent, will you become leader? Or will you act as greystripe in firestats quest, forever holding onto hope? And... i think goldenstripe would be the best deputy. He is on the most. And the oldest. And he doesnt have kits.

    No Other Place

    Charisma is happily married to Gideon Joel, a world renowned psychiatrist known for his work with mental illness. They have one daughter, April. From the outside looking in, life is good for the Joel family.

    Unfortunately, for the Joels, their life changes. Gideon is depressed, on a medical leave and never leaves the house. Charisma and April find themselves having to tiptoe around him all the while trying to keep what's going on in their home private. Soon the demands on Charisma are too much. When she seeks help from Dr. Logan, her husband's replacement, things become more complicated.

    "Secret Place" by Leslie J. Sherrod is a very good book. Mental illness is rarely a topic, if ever, touched upon in African American communities and should not be continuously looked over as it is not prone to just other races. "Secret Place" is such a powerful read, I'm at a loss for words. At times the book does read a little slow, but when it picks up, it's magnificent. I especially enjoyed the bible scriptures.

    "Secret Place" is an excellent read that I highly recommend!
