Why I Jumped: A Dramatic Story of Finding Hope beyond Depression : On July 19, 2004, after a high-speed chase to the top of a bridge, a young woman stopped, got out of her car, walked to the edge - and jumped. The state trooper who had been following raced over, thrust out his hand, and in a miracle of timing and determination, snagged the woman's wrist as she started the plunge. Other officers ran to his aid, and they pulled the woman to safety while the on-dash police cam captured the action. That woman on the edge was Tina Zahn, and in Why I Jumped she shares her amazing story. This gripping book gives us a glimpse of what led to such deep depression that suicide seemed the only answer. From abuse and rejection in her childhood to severe postpartum depression after the birth of her second child, Tina has overcome incredible odds to get where she is today. If you or someone you love is struggling with depression, this book will offer hope to seek help and overcome. You won't be able to put down this powerful true story of emotional struggle, dramatic rescue, and a return to hope.
