This is a great/tragic story of Danielle Steel's son battle with being a manic depressed person. It's a story that will make you cry ALOT - so keep tissues near by. It's a must read for anyone that needs to realize that you never know what lies under the surface of humans. May Nick be at peace.

Telling story about a manic depressive's life. Hard to read parts of his struggle with suicide attempts and final success. Can be especially difficult if you manic depressive.

I had no idea that Danielle Steel had this tragedy in her life but in this book, she celebrates her son's life and shares his tragic death with others to help them.

This is such a sad story. It is remarkable how he had this amazing network of people who were constantly watching over him. I love Danielle Steel and enjoy her books and I can relate to her as a mother for loving her son "so much" that it hurts when you have to sit by and watch them make mistakes and other people think you are babying them instead of trying to help them. This boy had so many difficulties in his lifetime and it seemed only his mother really understood him when he was a young child. It is sad too that many professionals didn't even have a clue on how to help him and many turned away from him because of his problems.

What a heart-wrenching story. Who knew that despite her public success, Danielle Steele was privately waging a battle for the life of her beloved son? But despite so much darkness (this story could really have been a depressing read) there was so much more "light." Well done.

What a beautiful story of Nick Traina. I have always been a fan of Danielle Steel and this book truly touched my heart. She did an amazing job of shedding a light on this debilitating disease that so many suffer from in silence. A wonderful book.
