Author(s): Gordon Parker
Doctor Martin Homer has a naturally sunny disposition. Honourable, attentive and trusted by all of his patients, he has only ever loved one woman – his wife, Sarah.
When his mother dies suddenly, Martin’s life is thrown into complete disarray. His profound grief sinks him into a state of black dog depression, before he is propelled to new heights in a frenzied, manic high.
In between riding his new skateboard around the streets and skating on thin ice both personally and professionally, the now self-entitled Martin crosses paths with Bella, a beautiful and sensual young woman profoundly damaged by trauma of her own.
In Two Minds takes you on a quirky, rollicking journey that unveils the complexities of mental illness with wit and warmth. Gordon Parker’s impressive career in psychiatry reveals itself through rich and insightful descriptions of depression, bipolar disorder and borderline personality characteristics - and their powerful impacts.
