About the Book

The Dark Has Its Own Light chronicles the author’s experience as a patient in a psychiatric hospital, at a time when limited treatment methods meant less chance of recovery. Alternating between recounting the family history that resulted in hospitalization, and the relationships that developed in the hospital, the book charts a story of loss, suffering, and the discovery of hope and love where none seemed possible.

About the Author

Sue Dowell holds two advanced degrees and has pursued a successful career as a church pastor--not the usual life course of someone who spent two years in a psychiatric hospital suffering from severe mental illness that nearly resulted in death from suicide. That she healed and went on to a full life is testimony to God’s amazing grace and the resilience of the human spirit.
