PLAYING THE GENETIC LOTTERY BOOK TOUR AND EXCERPT




Today we have an excerpt from Playing the Genetic Lottery by Terri Morgan.. Please visit the rest rest of the stops of the tour and you will read the entire prologue from the book Have Fun!

"Escaped the mental illness that afflicted and consumed my mother, my father and my brother. Escaped the schizophrenia that robbed them of their minds and me of a childhood."

About the Book:

Caitlin Kane knows more about the impact of schizophrenia than most people could imagine. Both her parents were afflicted with the devastating mental illness, a disease that tends to run in families, and Caitlin and her brother grew up trying to navigate the chaos of living with two schizophrenics. Her tumultuous childhood left Caitlin determined to forge a peaceful and serene life for herself. Now 32, she is living her dream. Married to her best friend, she and her husband are raising two bright young children in the suburbs of Seattle. While her unusual upbringing has left Caitlin with emotional scars, she enjoys the love and support of her extended family and her challenging career as a pediatric nurse. But no matter how hard she tries, she can't shake the obsessive fear that the family illness will strike again, robbing her of her mind or stealing away the sanity of one or both of her children.

Available at Amazon and in paperback directly from TerriMorgan.net

  1. This book sounds wonderful! I am glad I read about it. Someone I once loved suffered from Schizophrenia and I knew all too well how hard it was for him and his family. He was young when it came on. Sadly he passed on at 36 y.o.
    Thank you for sharing this book :)

  4. I cannot even imagine growing up with parents who suffer from mental illness. I'm glad that she is not affected. It sounds like a truly intense, but emotional read. I have downloaded it to my reader. Thank you for the review.
