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.

Through her vibrant storytelling, Grace connects readers to the strengths she discovered in her process of self discovery. In the second half of her book, she shares some of the practical steps that helped her build resilience in her own life:
Readers are challenged to ask themselves “What tiny, little thing can I do today that would make me a happier, stronger and braver person?”
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."
