WINNIPEG, Manitoba (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
According to the suicide awareness group, SAVE: Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, suicide takes the lives of nearly 30,000 Americans every year. This action however affects more than just the victim, but the lives of everyone who knows the individual. For author and mother Louise Dupont, her life was forever changed when she lost her 21-year-old son to depression and suicide. Now, Louise pens her story towards healing and reconciliation in her new book, “Hidden Treasures” (published by Trafford Publishing).
“Hidden Treasures” tells the true story of André, a young man who touched the lives of many people, though his own life ended far too soon. It is also the story of Louise’s transformation as she grappled with her son’s death and gradually came to see their relationship in a new light.
Suicide is a difficult topic to broach but it is eloquently presented in the form of a tale.
A creative writing assignment penned by a very young André serves as a prelude to Louise’s story. Louise’s decision to share her story in writing was cathartic as it allowed her to find serenity and peace following the tragedy of her son’s death.
“If you are trying to make sense of significant and defining moments in your life, this moving story of love and hope may be just what you are looking for,” believes Dupont.
