"Heart Berries is a powerful, poetic memoir of a woman's coming of age on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder; Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The triumphant result is Heart Berries, a memorial for Mailhot's mother, a social worker and activist who had a thing for prisoners; a story of reconciliation with her father-an abusive drunk and a brilliant artist-who was murdered under mysterious circumstances; and an elegy on how difficult it is to love someone while dragging the long shadows of shame. Mailhot trusts the reader to understand that memory isn't exact, but melded to imagination, pain, and what we can bring ourselves to accept. Her unique and at times unsettling voice graphically illustrates her mental state. As she writes, she discovers her own true voice, seizes control of her story, and, in so doing, reestablishes her connection to her family, to her people, and to her place in the world."--… (mere)

Really powerful writing. Only complaint is the time line going back and forth so often that I get confused on which man she is speaking about ( )

I really enjoyed the writing style in this book. The author seemed so honest about herself that it was often surprising. Most people try to make themselves the heroes in their memoirs...Ms.Mailhot did not do this but I think she's amazing. ( )

adult nonfiction/memoir (woman of Native American heritage dealing with PTSD, bipolar II disorder, eating disorders, a difficult break up, and other challenges).
poetic and raw, loaded with emotion and meaning (though often I am not sure what exactly the meaning is)--an extremely talented writer with a unique voice. Not what I was expecting but a pleasant surprise.

old lady reader warnings: contains numerous f-bombs and explicit situations. ( )

Mailhot presents raw, uninhibited introspection into her mental health struggles, slowly revealing in devastating passing fragments the abuse she has endured throughout life. The stream-of-consciousness structure is fitting for her story, though it’s hard to disentangle the different figures she discusses if you have any lapses in attention. The book was difficult to read at times; it kills my soul a little to watch women go back to abusers or men that aren’t treating them well. ( )

3 stars for now, though I plan to reread at some point.

Heart Berries is Terese Marie Mailhot's memoir about life and coming-of-age as a First Nations woman in the Pacific Northwest. The book jumps around in time, with particular emphasis on various facets of Mailhot's experience of parenthood, both tracing her history with her own parents as well as her own experience of motherhood. Throughout, there are strong themes of abuse, addiction, and trauma.

I listened to this as an audiobook, and I'm not sure that I'd recommend it in that format. The audio itself is totally fine, bu the poetic and extremely nonlinear nature of the writing would, I think, be better suited to a physical page, so that you can reread and go back as necessary--I found that I got lost/confused a lot. The emotions in this book are really raw and powerful, however. I do hope to reread this sometime in physical format, and I suspect that my rating will go up at that point. ( )
