Format: Paperback
A well written, loving, beautiful and heart wrenching tribute to her children Kelty and Riley, Ginny Dennehy delivers a candid and intimate account of their lives and the tragic effects of the mental disease of depression. Ginny and her husband Kerry's courage, perseverance and continued focus on The Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation and their children's legacies is graceful inspiration and evidence of their desire to save depressed young people at risk of suicide. They are leaders in the love they are spreading to youth and their families affected with depression. Ginny's stories have helped me to be more aware of the effects of this devastating illness. I am following their Enough is Enough cross-Canada bicycle trek via their website and blog, http://www.eie.thekeltyfoundation.org/ with great respect and support for their dedication and adventures. Thank you for what you are doing and God continue to bless you both.

Format: Paperback
This slight volume is packed with emotion, honesty, heartache, but most importantly and true to its title, it is a story of a brave and courageous couple that chose giving instead of giving in. Ginny Dennehy writing with Shelley Fralic relates the story of the loss of her two children – a tragedy most of us cannot even imagine, and in doing so she shatters the stigma around depression and suicide. This is a must read for anybody whose life is touched by teenagers, who are so vulnerable to depression. It reminds the reader that education is the best step toward suicide prevention.
I finished this book in a couple of days because I could not put it down. Highly recommended.

Even though Ginney does not share intimate details of the effect this had on her marriage, and family and friends. She helps

us through some of the hurt and damage, plus powerlessness over someone else's mental struggles. We cannot begin to fathom unless it happens to us.

I am glad i read this and recommend it to others...especially if you know someone who has a family member struggling with suicidal thoughts...or deep depression. Thankyou for sharing your journey with us, Ginney.

HASH(0x9de8d8b8) out of 5 stars Powerful and heartwrenching Aug. 7 2013
By JohnnyCanuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Quite simply an incredibly powerful & heart-wrenching book. Beautifully written and incisively insightful. Not just a book for any one ever impacted by someone they know suffering (often silently) from mental health and suicidal level depression. But also for the greater general public - that serves a higher purpose of speaking directly to the debilitating stigma that our society has about mental illness issues, a stigma that often prevents progress from being made on the research & health care support front.
