When Terese Marie Mailhot finds herself hospitalised due to a combination of PTSD and bipolar, she is given a notebook and begins to write. Heart Berries is what this notebook became. Part memoir, part memorial, Mailhot uncovers her sometimes troubling relationships with her parents and her lovers and tries to make sense of them and herself.
I personally kind of struggled to ‘get into’ this book. It’s definitely not an easy read and can be difficult to follow at times. However, the language is beautiful, it’s incredibly personal and powerful.
Rating: 3 / 5 stars
