SympathyBook - 2005
When a car accident claims the lives of her husband and son, Kerry Taylor, a former ballet dancer, slips into a catatonic state. Her family's last option is the Rosewood Clinic in Washington, D.C., where the enigmatic Dr. Michael Myatt has launched a controversial new therapy. The novel is framed around the seven distinct phases of Myatt's radical "sympathy-based" healing. A supporting cast of five colourful lost souls adds earthy humour to the story of Kerry's gradual return to consciousness. This is a gripping, moving and often surprisingly funny examination of the relationship between mind and body.
