Defective by Susan Sofayov
Kindle Countdown Deal
Her mood swings drove away her would-be husband. Can she slow life down before she’s left behind?
Maggie Hovis battles herself daily. Scrambling to pick up the pieces after something possesses her to pelt a shoe at her fiancé, the law student quickly takes up the suggestion to see a therapist. But she’s crushed when she receives a stigmatizing Bipolar II diagnosis and fears her shot at normal just died.
Now saddled with a label and terrified she’ll end up like her institutionalized great aunt, Maggie delves into her family’s storied history of mental illness. And with tensions at a breaking point and her emotions on a hair trigger, she worries what others say is true: she’s permanently broken.
Can she learn to fully accept herself and decide her own future?
Defective is a beautifully empathic women’s fiction novel. If you like journeys of self-discovery, hard subjects thoughtfully handled, and blossoming passions, then you’ll love Susan Sofayov’s touching story.
