This easy to read book has nothing to do with Patty Hearst, so don't let the title fool you. This is the story of a family with a severely mentally ill mother told from the perspective of the daughter. It is somewhat reminiscent of The Glass Castle, but less compelling, shorter, and not as well written. The setting is Tidewater area of Virginia, which I found very interesting because I have lived in that area--although not in a cabin.
