It was 1981-the year life blew up in eighteen-year-old Leslie J. Hollis' face. She couldn't get out of bed in the morning, and she cried all the time. If she had had the guts, she would have ended her life numerous times. The hurt and sense of worthlessness paled in comparison to death. It was also the year she met Kara, a talented psychotherapist.

Hollis knew life was not supposed to be characterized by constant pain, a longing to be accepted, and anxiety and worries that made it difficult to function. She was a ticking time bomb, imploding with distress. In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis shares the powerful life story of a young girl in search of her true self. She tells how she revisited the pain and isolation of her childhood to unlock the mysteries of the feelings she so desperately needed to escape from.

In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis helps those who feel vulnerable and defenseless and who have no sense of self. She shares how anxiety and pain, although overwhelming at times, can be confronted and treated. Depression and eating disorders can become a part of the past; a rebirth to a new, more productive life awaits. Learn to get out of bed every day and live, love, and laugh.

A Child's Garden Of Verses

A Child's Garden of Verses is a novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. A Child's Garden of Verses is the ideal field for the Grown-Up's harvester. It stands alone. There is nothing like it, so intimate, so simply truthful, in our language, in any language. Herein the poet (at last one may use the words "poet" and "poetry" with no reservations) has accomplished that most difficult of feats: he has recaptured in maturity the thoughts, ambitions, purposes, hopes, fears, philosophy of the child. It is our joy, as we listen, to recapture them too. "I also hunted behind the sofa back." The man of genius who can draw from his charmed reader a genuine "I also," is assured of a niche in the heart. The Child's Garden of Verses is one of those books which inspire the feeling - almost the passion-of gratitude. As we read our eyes are a little moist-with satisfaction; and now, when the words have the sympathetic alliance of Charles Robinson's pencil, more so than ever. (Never were author and artist in closer accord. It adds matter to our grief for Mr. Stevenson's early death that he could not see these winsome pictures, especially perhaps the last.) As we read, years fall away, wrinkles are smoothed out, the envious crow removes his foot, world-knowledge so bitterly acquired evanesces, and once again the man is a child at play, and a bird is singing in his heart as of old. In reading these verses, we can exclaim: We also. But this is a slight exaggeration. Only a very few readers could honestly say that, for the Stevenson child is a child of genius, removed from the ordinary child by a wide gulf. It is true that a philosopher has recorded his belief that every child has genius; but, even if that be so, there are degrees. It is given to few to possess the wisdom and imaginings of this little gardener. The difference between the child of genius and the ordinary child may be illustrated by quotation. A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson is a great book highly recommended to read ..
