"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.

  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 :)

  2. This book sounds like it would be a little intense but good!

  3. Thank you for the review. I may read this

  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.

  5. This book sounds interesting and sounds like it would be a good read. Thanks for the tip.

  6. Awesome. Thanks for the review.

  7. I love these kinds of stories, because they hit close to home...My sister has some issues...mentally ill, and we don't know where it came from.

  8. This sounds like a great book - a topic that you don't read much about. Thanks.


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward in reading all of your great comments. Have a great day!
