"The life of God is eternal; everything else passes, including depression. And this is the truth that Katharine’s book echoes . . . every page is a breath of life and a promise of resurrection." Jane Williams, wife of Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury

When we suffer from depression, the idea of waking up in the morning and feeling glad to be alive seems almost impossible.

Depression is a devastating illness, both for those affected and for their loved ones, and the road to recovery can seem long and winding. This encouraging book will prove a reassuring guide and in its author, Katharine Smith, an empathetic companion. A complete cure from depression might not always be possible. Yet Katharine’s experiences of recovery illustrates the importance of identifying the negative patterns of thought and behavior. As we attempt to transform these patterns, we might discover that our faith and hope take on a new maturity.

Recovering from Depression, though mainly for those overcoming this condition, also provides valuable insight for relatives, friends, and people who offer pastoral care.
