Doc The Center of Winter This book has been near and dear to my heart. I am unhappy to have finished it. It both warms you and breaks your heart. Davey and Kate are six yrs old and the best of friends. Esau is Kate's twelve yr old brother who seems to have Bipolar Disorder. He has his "darks" and is hospitalized, institutionalized and eventually brought home and stabilizes. His mother says he has the "sick-sads" that he quite possibly inherited from his father who eventually kills himself. Kate and Davey are inseparable-there is not one without the other. Kate loves her brother more than she'd like to admit. Their sweet unspoken understandings of one another will make you smile with tears. This is the saddest and sweetest book I have ever read. In this book, "The Center For Winter" you will find yourself wanting so much to wrap the people in your arms and hold them with understanding. You will want so much to save them, to tell them you know. Marya Hornbacher is not alien to these sorts of feelings. She will take you there and you will know. Last night while reading I forgot where I was. I sat my book down after a chapter and looked to the clock which read 11:43pm. and said to myself, "Gosh, forgot where I was, what time it was..." I know that I will not want to leave this book and will place it lovingly on a shelf where I will remember and return to it years later..

Good Kindle The Center of Winter The Center of Winter is the story of a father's suicide and the way it reverberates through his family for the next year. Told from the perspective of all the ones left behind (his wife, son, and young daughter), the novel is by turns excruciatingly sad, dull, painful, and joyful. It's the story of a family coming back to life after the unthinkable has happened, and not just surviving but eventually thriving.I found myself falling in love with every character in the book, even the man who did the unthinkable to his family and friends by leaving them behind. Sandwiched between her two breathtaking memoirs ('Wasted' and 'Madness'), she has called this novel her 'Love song to the North.' And that is exactly how Center of Winter reads -- like a love song, filled with characters whose hearts beat too big and loudly and painfully to do anything but move forward after life changes.
