In this setting she found total healing for what had been called an incurable illness. In the course of 14 years of academic study, writing several papers on the subject that had little or no effect, she finally realised that getting the healing message to other sufferers would require a very different genre of writing. This book, a novel, is that genre. Drawing on 38 years of experience, she has pieced together a coherent story of recovery. Perhaps most significantly, the characters and events are based on fact.

In Voice of the Witness, six mentally ill people decide to meet regularly and share their experiences in order to help each other live a better life. None believe that recovery is possible. They find that the ordinary, everyday things they do are remarkably healing. They continue to explore issues and discover that much of their professional treatment has unwittingly fostered and nurtured their mental illnesses. By the time the book ends, four of the group are totally free of their illness and all medication.

The other two are psychologically sound, and in the last stages of recovery. Voice of the Witness is a life-changing book. This is the 12th book by Emma Pierce, PhD, of Newcastle, Australia. After recovering from mental illness, she spent 38 years working with other sufferers, as well as completing her doctorate on A Practical Theology of Mental Health.
