review 1: What a wonderful debut--and a thought-provoking page-turner about a family struggling to deal with the stigma of suicide and the legacy of bipolar disorder. I love fiction that chips away at the stereotypes of mental illness, and I was thrilled that the author focused on the genetic component. (I do have a family member with bipolar.) Despite the dark subject matter, however, this is a very hopeful read. The characters are all fabulous, but I think Darcy is my favorite. She's so unexpected. I loved her voice and the decisions she makes. She's a wonderful combination of troubled teen, grieving daughter, and old soul. I can't wait to see what Ms Thomson writes next!

... moreom the very first pages, the kind of book I found myself thinking about even when I wasn't reading. I was continuously longing to find the time to read when I didn't have the time - a page here, a chapter there, because I couldn't wait to find out what was happening in the lives of Laura and Aidan, Darcy and Troy. What I enjoyed most about the novel were the characters, who I found to be entirely genuine from page 1 to the very end of the book. From their inner thoughts to the dialogue between characters, I found it to be natural and authentic. I was utterly impressed by how real these character seemed to me. EQUILIBRIUM is a story of love and family drama (of which, in one way or another, we can all relate), and about finding the strength and courage to overcome the hardships in our lives. A beautiful story! Looking forward to Lorrie's next novel WHAT'S LEFT BEHIND in August! less
