I could almost touch the Devil
by Dawn Rodger

A courageous, touching and deeply personal story about mental illness, Dawn Rodger’s memoir will shed light on the dark days she experienced before discovering a life of health, happiness and balance. When Dawn, a passionate music teacher and a loving wife and mother, tried medication to ease her symptoms of endometriosis, little did she know this powerful drug would trigger symptoms of depression. She soon went down a spiralling path of debilitating anxiety attacks, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and hospitalization. Her marriage began to fall apart and she hit rock bottom. Dawn desperately cried out for help from God as she tried to understand how to break herself free from the darkness that consumed her. In this unflinching memoir, Dawn shares the incredible story of how she managed to emerge from the darkness, explore her haunted past and heal herself with the help of God and the blessings of family and friendship.

“...Genuine, perceptive, and optimistic...” —Kirkus Reviews “An illuminating account that should be a vital tool in helping others, delivering both warning signs of mental illness and a road map to recovery.” —Kirkus Reviews

Dawn Rodger has been an elementary school music teacher for over eighteen years and holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Ontario and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto. She enjoys running on the open road, reading, teaching music theory, attending classical music concerts and singing with her best friend. She lives in the Greater Toronto Area with her two daughters and her beloved pets.
