As a young girl growing up in the Midwest, Sunny experiences the shame and stigma of scandal when her father is banned from their church for having an affair with the pastor’s best friend’s wife. As Sunny grows older, she begins to build the life she’s always wanted: she marries, buys a house, enrolls in graduate school, and soon has a baby on the way. But when she experiences the psychological phenomena of orgasmic labor, it triggers a chain of bizarre events, and she gradually descends into a world of delusion and paranoia. As Sunny struggles to separate the real from the unreal, she relies upon friends and family to ground her in truth and love―and keep her from going over the edge into madness.

My Thoughts:
What a beautifully written book. While reading I experienced so many emotions. I was laughing crying, and cringing throughout this book. I felt like Sunny was talking to me on a one-on-one sitting instead of reading a book. This was an honest, raw tale of one woman's journey and mental illness. There should really be more books like this one. I can't imagine giving birth and then having all those things happen. Sunny was so brave and strong dealing with everything. I finished this book in about 3 hours on a flight. It's such a good book that it will suck you in and not let you leave until you're finished.
