About the Book

The Full Ripened Grain is a memoir about a successful baby boomer, wife, and mother who finds herself deeply depressed for no apparent reason. When her loving husband says, “I want my wife back,” she searches for herself in the pages of thirty years of personal journals. From them, she recollects painful and poignant issues she faced with her family during much of the twentieth century: Tourette syndrome, her mother’s fate as a victim of medical malpractice, her father’s secret life, and the death of a beloved sister. Ultimately, she reaps the grains of truth, hope, and joy that God provides on this journey of faith.
