I’ve had some good reviews for my book so far.

I’m really pleased with the reviews I’ve had so far for my book. So I thought I’d share them here.

If you would like to buy a copy then you can do so via Amazon or Olympia Publishers. And Blackwells. Waterstones

Please note – the published book is the story behind the ‘art’ and poetry/prayers in the pdf available on this site.

Ashley also wrote a lovely review on her blog –

and I’ve just copied these from Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars Message of hope and healing

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 September 2022

I was given this book to review by the author.
An excellent small book about mental health and healing through Jesus Christ.

Very straight talking narrative, interspersed with journal entries and prayers.

Elizabeth is a vicar in the C of E. Her spiritual path has been winding and God has clearly taught her a lot as He has healed her.

An excellent autobiographical account of healing, wholeness and a life of faith.


5.0 out of 5 stars Recovery through faith

I found this book very readable, well written and difficult to put down. Maybe this is because the author shares the same favourite hymn as me (And Can it Be?) and like me enjoys writing poems, and is a church going Anglican.
I think though that it is most likely to appeal to women who suffer from depression, and it could be useful to them, especially if they are Christians or interested in Christianity. Christians aren’t supposed to get depressed. It can be a strain being surrounded by relentlessly upbeat people, when you are not feeling upbeat, so reading this book could let them know that they aren’t the only one. They are not alone.
The author is an Anglican vicar and was a mental health chaplain for some years.
She courageously and with brutal honesty tells how she married, came to Christian faith, and eventually became a priest, but was pursued relentlessly by the “black dog” of depression, until by way of many struggles and much praying, painting and poetry, she got the depression in to submission.
Definitely worth a read.
