Rachel grew up as the child of a single mom, a mom who went from man to man, using them and never really loving them. She was from the wrong side of the tracks. In college she reinvented herself, got in with the right crowd and met and married a doctor.
However, she always felt like she was acting, like she was playing a role rather than being herself. That insecurity, the death of the baby, and probably some post-partum depression caused her to have a breakdown. Part of what helped her find her way back was St. Therese of Lisieux's Story of a Soul. Though she was not Catholic she found herself in a Catholic church talking to a priest.
Still, it doesn't come across as preachy, but more along the lines of "you've tried other stuff, and it hasn't worked, how about trying this? It is one of those books where finding Jesus leads to healing in this life. Michelle Buckman is a good writer, a real wordsmith.
