I’m so humbled by the reviews of my book, “Hear The Music, memoirs from the sister of The Soloist.” Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This first one comes from filmmaker Cristóbal “Cris” Krusen who took the time from filming “Let Me Have My Son” to read “Hear The Music!”

Are you familiar with the movie “The Soloist”? It stars Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. The plot is based on the true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who developed schizophrenia and became homeless.

Some years ago, I heard Nathaniel’s sister, Jennifer Ayers-Moore, speak at a NAMI conference in St. Paul and we became friends. She has recently published a book entitled “Hear the Music, Memoirs from the Sister of the Soloist”. If you have ears to hear, you will “hear the music” in Jennifer’s story and be a better person for it. You should also know that Jennifer uses proceeds from book sales to purchase socks for agencies caring for people with mental health conditions. I hope you’ll show some love (both for yourself and others) by buying a copy of her book.

Heartfelt and Personal Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2021 – I have several close family members that suffer from mental illness and I have seen and experienced many of the same indignities described by the author. The book was the true story behind “The Soloist”, told in a way that is very easy to relate to.

I hear the music! – Reviewed in the United States on February 16, 2021 – Hear the Music is a wonderful musical metaphor. The struggles and triumphs she shares can help us erase the stigmas of mental illness.
