About the Book

Thoughts that replay endlessly in your head, nightmares that leave you shaking, pain that brings you to your knees—we may not often discuss these experiences, but they are more common than we might think. Even in the darkest of times, we are not alone.

In The Unspoken, author Alyce Preston exposes her vulnerabilities and fears through poems about personal experiences relating to mental illness that are normally left unspoken in religious circles and within faith-based writing; these include depression, anxiety, and suicide. She seeks to shed light on the darkest of places and bring hope to those who can no longer see. In her poetry, Alyce describes her struggles, shared by so many today, and inspires through her own life and faith.

When we confront our troubles and speak about them, this can serve as a balm to help begin our healing journey. Through these raw and powerful verses, Alyce hopes to bring others with her along the path toward wellness.
