Great book! As a professional I work with individuals who are mentally ill on a daily basis but it was great to see the perspective and frustrations from the parent's point of view. Very well written and hard to put down.
Loved this book. Especially coming from a family with a lot bipolar disorder. Must read for those in similar circumstances.
This book is very well written. They story was alittle slow for my taste, but the author did a good job of detailing bipolar disorder and how it takes a hold of not just the person but also the family. I suffer from bipolar disorder and the details were right on for someone that doesn't take her medicine consistently.
This was a really good book that gave a look into what parents go through when an adult child is sick. Also shows that parents will go to any length to protect their kids.
True mental illness is something not easily understood unless you have experienced it in your life. The late author Bebe Moore Campbell does a stunning job conveying the ups and downs, the hopes and tragedies, the emotional roller coaster, and the heartbreak of dealing with her daughter, who has a very serious case of bipolar disorder.
This is one of the most well-written novels I have read on this subject. I highly recommend it.
