I wasn't planning to read this while on a trip to London, but it was so gripping I had to take it with me. Randye Kaye's story of her son's gradual descent into schizophrenia,had me hoping and despairing by turns, but rooting for Ben all the way. I know this story is true, because it so exactly mirrors my own, and it could only have been written by someone who's been there. The style is polished and fast-paced, with helpful sidebars giving practical information. I highly recommend this to anyone facing a diagnosis of mental illness within the family. Randye's compassionate eye is inspiring.
