This is a memoir of a woman's struggle with her mother's mental illness and how it affected her and her family. I haven't read too many books involving a character with such severe schizophrenia and this one had some interesting insights, but I felt that the book was a little too preachy in places, so much so that I had difficulty returning to the book and almost put it down for good. The ending was nice, but it seemed to go on a little too long.
