Author Roxanne Rowe shares her own personal story in A Walk With Schizophrenia. She shares how she began to experience symptoms during her senior year of high school and depressive moments even years earlier. She was split between her parents at a early age and saw people in her dreams, which was a significant reality for Roxanne. Hearing voices, both good and bad, were a part of her life, as well as seeing pictures and short movies within her head. She also experienced feelings of things unseen around her as well as hearing voices of suicide. Hearing these voices on a daily basis took a toll on Roxanne, but she drew strength from the church, through their love, support and prayers. She leans upon God for her strength and recognizes that she has an uphill battle with this issue called schizophrenia. This isn't something to laugh about or take lightly. The person who is experiencing these feelings is certain they are real.

Author Rowe helps the reader by being open, honest, and transparent as we are allowed to look within her life and see the challenges and struggles that she faces. This would be a great help for those with similar issues as well as an excellent tool to use for classroom studies and understanding of this broad subject. Roxanne tells a story that is very real and personal and shares songs that she has written as well. This is a very eye-opening and heart-wrenching book to read.
