When Giving Your All Isn’t Enough!


At twenty-five, elementary school teacher Charlie Johnston is a young woman who seems to have everything: beauty, brains, charm, talent, and drive. But university professor Dr. Doug Larson, who has loved her and had his heart broken by her for nearly three years, knows her dark side; she is competitive, manipulative, promiscuous, and impulsive.

Charlie’s contradictions stem from a tortured root. She is manic-depressive and possibly schizophrenic. My Bittersweet Charlie traces the course of a love affair as poignant and tender as it is frightening and shocking. Doug and Charlie delve deeply into her mental health disorders as Charlie shares with Doug her visits with different psychiatrists in her quest for healing. With a depth of empathy and clarity of understanding, author Robert Clark takes the reader on Doug and Charlie’s ecstatic and tragic ride to a dramatic, unforgettable climax.

My Bittersweet Charlie provides insights into two of the most devastating mental health disorders while telling a compelling story about the joys and sacrifices of love.
