Dorothy lives in a fishing village in Fife, Scotland with Peter, her husband. She tries to live a quiet rhythm of contemplation and prayer, only slightly influenced by several noisy grand-children and an unruly church family, all of which makes her extremely happy and keeps her well grounded. Now the long years of depression have resolved themselves, Dorothy has become a listener and soul friend to many other hurting souls, practising mentoring, spiritual direction and personality management.
This is the story of one woman’s struggle to find normality and happiness while fighting the demons of the past. It is the story of God’s work in Dorothy, allowing her both the sadness and privilege of wading through the marshlands of depression in order to find a way not just to keep from sinking, but to live on the higher ground where she can feel secure and happy.
