Book Review: Storm at the Door

The Storm at the DoorThe Storm at the Door by Stefan Merrill Block

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This young author seems to possess profound understanding of what mental illness can mean to both the patient and family. Set in the 1960's, the story centers on his grandfather, diagnosed with manic depression.  The descriptions of events might happen to many of us given a push one way or another.

Traveling through episodes at the mental institution and the sheer pointlessness felt by so many was very tiring, but brought greater understanding  about mental conditons.
