Ms. Holman writes of her life with her mother who has schizophrenia in Rescuing Patty Hearst. She presents a brutally honest and painful look into the effect of severe mental illness on her family. It is heartbreaking, yet true. An excellent book for any family member of someone with mental illness. Although Ms. Holman's story is more tragic than most, it captures the anger, pain, guilt, love, and compassion that a family member endures.
