The Birds Still Sing
My Journey of Resilience Through Postpartum Depression
by Grace Tallman

The Birds Still Sing: My Journey of Resilience Through Postpartum Depression is an invaluable and inspiring read for anyone who is struggling to re-discover meaning and purpose in life after a devastating experience. Readers will be riveted by the bold, real-life account of a young mother who plunges into the depths of darkness and emerges as a stronger, more grounded person. Although the story focuses on postpartum depression, this is a book that will resonate with any readers who have struggled with a difficult challenge of any kind in their life, whether it is a major loss, relationship break-up, or a physical or mental health crisis.

An unblinking, valuable portrait of hope.

—Kirkus reviews

In her inspiring memoir, The Birds Still Sing, Grace Tallman takes the reader on a journey as she provides a vivid account of her experience with postpartum depression. Drawing upon her lived experience she paints an accurate picture of the disorder and the role of resilience in its recovery. Women with postpartum depression and their families will surely benefit from her hopeful yet realistic message that there is indeed a light at the end of the tunnel.

Professor of Psychiatry and Obstetrics & Gynecology, Western University

The Birds Still Sing contains so much essential, hard earned and compassionate information that has resulted from Grace’s own challenging life experiences. I personally have found much of it very helpful.I think this is going to be a very important book - the kind of book where the reader feels “Finally! someone understands what I'm going through!"-
