Date:12/28/2008

In 1993, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jimmy Breslin, wrote a front page story for New York Newsday about Melanie Cane, a young, troubled psychiatrist, who "let love take her too far" by poisoning her former boyfriend, also a psychiatrist. Now, 16 years later, Melanie tells her side of the story in POISONED LOVE, (Bascom Hill Publishing Group; February 2009; 978-1-935098-11-9; $19.95), a staggering account of her spiral into the depths of mental illness, an unvarnished description of her subsequent psychiatric treatment and the legal and social consequences of her desperate act, as well as her determined effort towards recovery and redemption.

Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) December 29, 2008 -- "Poisoned Love is a fascinating stew of one person's internal and external dialogue confronting mental illness, unrequited love, loss, childhood wrongs and the tragedy of one mistake that can change the entire direction of a life. The book is a compelling story for anyone who has gone through a difficult time and come out the other side. Melanie proves that human beings have a tremendous capacity to heal." -- Lee Woodruff, co-author with Bob Woodruff of Best selling In an Instant

In 1993, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Jimmy Breslin, wrote a front page story for New York Newsday about Melanie Cane, a young, troubled psychiatrist, who "let love take her too far" by poisoning her former boyfriend, also a psychiatrist. Now, 16 years later, Melanie tells her side of the story in Poisoned Love, (Bascom Hill Publishing Group; February 2009; 978-1-935098-11-9; $19.95), a staggering account of her spiral into the depths of mental illness, an unvarnished description of her subsequent psychiatric treatment and the legal and social consequences of her desperate act, as well as her determined effort towards recovery and redemption.

Readers will be drawn in by Melanie's account of her "perfect" romance turned heartbreak, as she details the psychological drama that eventually led to a catastrophic mistake. Her straightforward openness inspires empathy as she explores the pain of growing-up with a mentally ill father, abandonment and loss, and her subsequent long struggle toward mental health and the achievement of a productive life.
