His Bright Light: The Story of My Son, Nick Traina by Danielle Steel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
One of Danielle Steel's nine children - her 2nd-oldest, the only one fathered by Bill Toth - had bipolar disorder. Although he usually stayed away from hard drugs, he died of an apparently deliberate morphine overdose. Nick Traina was a lovely young man (inside and out; all the Steel children are gorgeous), a gifted musician and a talented songwriter, but just bipolar. Unfortunately his illness took his life.
I'm very sorry for the Steel family's loss. Danielle Steel seems like a genuinely sweet person. Her writing is a little sentimental for my personal taste, but she's French, so it's fine, really.
