You write so well and I love the way the book is set out I am sure it will help many people.” “Always On My Mind” What a totally captivating book.I read it from cover to cover and had trouble putting it down. It is up there with the best that i have ever read (and i read a lot). There were large parts of it than should be made compulsory reading for upper school students. A great read that I would recommend to everyone.” “I just had to keep reading. There’s a lot in Always On My Mind that I can deeply relate to. It’s so relieving to know that we aren’t alone. I also found the history components compelling. So much to learn that Australia still does not know about. A must read for any one who loves to read.” “I have just finished reading “Always on my Mind” by Megan Henry. I drove from 120kms last week just to purchase this book to take with me for the Easter break. My reason behind buying the book was to support a local writer-artist. What I got was a beautifully written account of love, heartache and mental illness. One of the best books I have read and I will be making everyone in my family read it.” “Well- I’ve read Always On Mind and it was beautiful. So real. So raw. A transparent and honest account that made me cry, cry, cry and my heart ache. One of the best books I’ve read in quite some time.” “So, I havent read a book apart from the Farm Weekly for over 10 years. Picked up “Always on My Mind” this arvo. Havent put it down yet. 5 chapters down and Always On My Mind has captured me.” "So powerfully written.

Fabulous writing, we did not put it down until finished.” ” I read Always On My Mind in one sitting. An afternoon and evening! I had been waiting to read Always On My Mind forever!! An author with a beautiful soul with great wit and refreshing honesty was always going to be a magnificent writer. Fast forward a few hours and can highly rate it. ‘Always On My Mind’ by Megan Henry is a fantastically captivating read about the adversities, growth and triumph of a beautiful individual.” “Finished Always On My Mind and could not put it down. Life has been put on hold just to devour it. I can now go back to being a Mum and a Wife.” “I am totally blown away by your writing and your book. So many times I personally can relate to the beautiful words you write. I don’t think you will realise just how many emotions you will stir up in many people. It’s absolutely wonderful.

The rawness, honesty and depth you disclosed was amazing. I just loved it and am telling everyone I see. Thank you for sharing your story. It made me feel so many differing emotions. Can’t wait to read your next one.” “Our power went off today – a sure sign I had to finish reading Always On My Mind right then and there. I did, and OMG I am a whirlwind of emotions, Im crying and smiling and giggling and I want to bawl all in one. You have unlocked emotions in me that I have tried so hard to switch off. Its so comforting to know that I am not alone with some of the feelings I feel and to not be embarrassed by them. That I am not responsibility for someone else’s actions, and that those actions define them not me. Thankyou for making me not feel alone. The greatest thing I will take away from Always On My Mind, and something I will try my hardest to install in my kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, friends, cousins, family, pretty much whoever crosses my past in this crazy thing called life is “Never dismiss the truth of your heart”.Thankyou Megan Henry from the bottom of my learning heart.” “Always On My Mind” by Megan Henry. What a journey. An exquisite memoir and extremely hard to put down. Highly recommend it.” “Have just finished reading “Always On My Mind” by the talented author Megan Henry. A truly inspirational read, that will take you on a journey of profound truth, heart and soul. A memoir that is poignant and open. Thank you for sharing Megan. By doing so you have soared my soul.”
