The Beauty in Breaking is a fascinating, heartbreaking, sometimes difficult, and always encouraging story, which is a poignant and true story of Harper’s path to self-healing. Every patient written by Harper taught her some important knowledge about conditioning and rehabilitation. How to get rid of fear even when the future is uncertain: how to tell the truth when it is easier to ignore. How to understand sympathy is not the same as justice. When she learned that the patients treated were deprived of their rights in the effort to maintain their health and dignity, Harper began to understand the importance of letting ourselves live in peace with the past when we receive support from the present. In this hopeful, moving and beautiful book, she talks about the precious and necessary lessons she has learned as a daughter, woman, and physician.
