This was a sobering look at the disease of paranoid schizophrenia. The woman suffering from the mental illness, Millie, is left undiagnosed, but always heavily medicated with one or another type of drug, for over twenty years. My thought after reading this was that if it takes a village to raise a child, the village cheated Mille and her daughters.

Many memoirs of childhood abuse suffer from shaky structure and flow; this one does as well. Some parental abuse is recounted in technicolor detail, with cutting insight, while the next incidence is vague and unconsciously protective of the parent. However, this is a valuable account of growing up with an undiagnosed, under-treated schizophrenic mother.

As i am myself a child of a mother living with mental illness i found this book very raw and familiar but comforting at the same time.To know what i have and do feel at times is not wrong and that i am not alone in these feelings gave me strength.Very well written from the heart
