After suffering multiple traumas and shattering losses, Suzanne Ludlum found herself in the depths of blinding depression and unimaginable despair. She spent nine years bouncing between psychiatric hospitals and psychologists' offices, suffering further at the hands of the very people who were supposed to protect her.
After hitting bottom, Suzanne began her long journey toward healing, during which time she stumbled upon the one modality that would make the most difference in her eventual climb out of darkness.
Critique: "An Imperfect Pilgrim: Trauma and Healing on This Side of the Rainbow" is an inherently riveting, deeply personal, and exceptionally well written, and impressively candid memoir in which Suzanne takes the reader along on her extraordinary journey as she discovers how mind-body practices were the key to helping her reclaim her lost life. While very highly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary American Biography collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "An Imperfect Pilgrim" is also available in a paperback edition and in a digital book format.
