Exploring the real life story of the unspeakable tragedy of losing a son to suicide, author Madeline Sharples has written an affecting and heart wrenching memoir entitled LEAVING THE HALL LIGHT ON. A deeply personal and first hand account of struggling with her son’s battle with bipolar disorder and the effect on the family, the memoir delves deeply within the author’s consciousness, as she explores on the page what it is like to attempt to create normalcy within a family life where little exists. She tells her story with courage and abiding honesty never shirking from the hard truths of a life filled with so many difficult choices regarding the most primal love of all, a mother for her son.

The author’s depth of emotion as she describes seven years of coping through the dark truths of her son’s bipolar disorder will inspire and help others come to terms with their own grief. This book will also solidify that many women out there are not alone in their journeys, and can take comfort that Madeline was brave enough to share her story with the world, which ultimately led her to again find purpose.”
