if you are thinking about what home means, perhaps if you feel as if you are out of place, disconnected or something is missing. Also, if you are living with chronic illness, or navigating big life changes.
A quick summary
Linda Gask has written bravely and honestly before about being both doctor and patient. She was a psychiatrist for many years (now retired) and her expertise came from her training and from personal experience of a long-term struggle with depression. In Finding True North, she shares what it meant finally to set up home where she felt she was supposed to be – to belong to a place, and the recovery that came from that. Living with polycystic kidney disease, she has a subtle and multi-faceted understanding of what recovery means – there is no trite, toxic positivity here. A thoughtful, searching and readable enquiry into self, health, relationships and home.
