John Branston chronicles the short, incandescent life of his extraordinary daughter, Katy: a life of achievement, dramatic successes, lives touched, and ultimate defeat in her battle with depression. From a father's perspective, using messages from her friends and Katy's own words, he shows a brilliant life unfolding and closing abruptly at age 29. The warmth of friends' devotion and a father's pride give way to a desolation that chills the heart with a parent's worst fear. Branston narrates Katy's life and begins the rest of his own. --Dr. James Megar, Family Therapist.
