The Day My Brother Drowned
“The Day My Brother Drowned,” is the true short story of a tragic accident that changed a family forever.
The story begins in a mental hospital and reaches back to the dance hall where Marilyn’s parents met during The Great Depression, the potato farm where tragedy took their oldest son, and the little house on Iona Street where Marilyn struggled to live with her mother’s mental illness.
It’s a story of a little girl’s loneliness and confusion and her own struggle with depression as an adult. It’s not until she sees her mom in a dream after her death that Marilyn finally understands the sacrifice her mother made for her.
“The Day My Brother Drowned” is a moving story of hope for those affected by depression—their own or another’s.
