Something to Say: Wandering Back to Saskatchewan (Paperback)
Wander Back to Saskatchewan for a taste of farm auctions, a day at the fair and a "go" at Saskatchewan farm life in the 1940s and '50s.
This is the story of Maggie Andersen whose abusive childhood contributes to hopelessness and anxiety. She stops talking when she is nine years old. A life changing event causes Maggie to understand how important her voice actually is. She realizes she can make a difference. We need each other, and we all have "something to say".
Bobby Fiske lives across the road. Despite the advantage of a solid, loving home and family, this young man loses all hope and perspective. The book encourages those who suffer from depression to speak up, share the dark feelings, and reach out for help. To friends and family standing by, the message is clear - never give up, watch like a hawk for danger signals and keep the line of communication wide open. The heart-breaking tragedy of suicide is addressed, but a powerful sense of hope is woven throughout the story.
