About the Book
After those terrifying days of her psychotic break, Denise Stand thought she would never see handsome Alton Mick again. He helped her when she needed it, but now she has a good job and a family who needs her healthy and focused. She doesn’t want the heartache and problems that come with love. When Alton walks back into her life, Denise pulls away.
After his own struggles with bipolar disorder, Alton knows he understands Denise and they can help encourage and inspire each other. When Alton is shot, Denise realizes how much she cares for him and realizes what she could lose.
Together, Alton and Denise try to build a relationship and a future. But their love is threatened by jealousy and their individual struggles stay healthy and alive.
Exploring themes of rape and mental illness, loneliness and suicide, hope and love, Where We Have Been is a mature look at romance and life. When obstacles happen, do not give up: pursue hope and love to live.
