Daybreak into Darkness Summary


Daybreak into Darkness: A True Story of Happiness and Heartbreak by Rupert Bogarde

A powerful memoir about mental illness and the destruction of love. Rupert and his wild and beautiful wife, Jacquie, move to France to renovate a twelfth century chapel in the Pyrenees. The work is demanding, the task at times apparently impossible, but with the help of neighbours, friends and family and their own faith and energy, their dream starts to become a reality. But as the ruined chapel is slowly built up, Jacquie is falling apart - plunging into her own personal hell and taking their marriage with her. The changes are so subtle at first that neither Rupert nor their friends notice it, but her descent into despair gathers speed and is soon hurtling towards a devastating conclusion. This is an extraordinary story, told with the immediacy of first-hand experience. It is a story about youth and naivety, energy and exhaustion but most of all it is about the agonies and responsibilities of love.
