Blessed with uncommon wit and natural good looks, armed with degrees from Brown and Duke, and engaged to a wealthy investor, Maysie Campbell seemed to have everything going for her. However, her outwardly faultless appearance and professional success masked deep inner turmoil. Her death by suicide in the summer of 2013 shattered peoples’ perceptions of her, and initiated a process of investigation and reflection by those who were close to her, including the author. Standing on the Edge is an account of Maysie’s life—how people perceived her, and how she viewed herself. This book also traces the lives of three other people, all known to the author by some degree, who likewise died by suicide. These four souls are connected only through the similarity of their tragedies, yet their families and friends are permanently connected through their grief. The stories gathered here depict the evolution of healing—individual and non-linear processes that often carry unexpected outcomes and insights. An interpretation of spirituality, fueled by natural imagery—centered in Deer Isle, Maine, Orcas Island, Washington, and Placitas, New Mexico—helps call forth an enhanced awareness of the wealth encircling us all. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS BOOK—PRINT AND EBOOK EDITIONS—WILL BE DONATED TO CHARITY.
