Description

When Harry Taylor married Terri, he knew she was schizophrenic. He knew she took little pink pills called Bedlamide. The Terri he had known while dating, and with whom he had fallen in love in Paris, was a quiet young woman, and he wanted to help her. What he didn't know was the extent of her mental illness-something that was willfully hidden from him by Terri, her parents, and her psychiatrist. "Four Years of Bedlamide" is a heartrending tale of a lawyer who just wants to start a family with a young wife and who never thought he would become another lawyer's client in a nasty, drawn-out divorce. It's a story that illustrates the destructive effects of both mental illness and difficult divorce litigation on a couple at the mercy of the greedy manipulations of a disturbed woman's parents. This poignant psychological novel also poses questions about the true nature of people in history who have heard the "voice of God." As Harry desperately tries to understand his wife's illness, his divorce becomes not only a soul-crushing separation from her and her family, but also a divorce from his own faith.
