Review

 Start reading. laugh. cry. laugh. cry. repeat until the end. September 18, 2014
This is one of those books that when you finish, you don't want to read anything for a few days. The story just sticks there and keeps your emotions going.


Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness that destroys the life of the sick person. Each family member must find their own way to deal with the heartbreak of seeing someone they love go from happy and loving, to a dark world of delusions. It leaves their families struggling to make sense of the insane mental health system, and the continuous attempt to normalize the life of someone living inside a delusion.

Dering's style of writing keeps the story moving, while providing many contrasts and insights about schizophrenia and the human emotions that are challenged in adult siblings of the ill person. Her story masterfully presented the inevitable chasms this illness causes in a family, without judging anyone. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a family member or friend who struggles with mental illness. You'll know you're not alone, and your experience isn't unique. For anyone else, it's a well-crafted story that won't disappoint.
Robert Prol

From the Author

This book is about the year in which my family and I struggle to support our brother Paul deal with his dual torments of mental illness and lung cancer, with a look back to the years leading up to this crucial period.  As I become reacquainted with Paul during his difficult last months, I reflect on the state of care for people with serious mental illness in America today.  And I meditate on faith, death, and what it means to be a human being, ultimately finding the caregiver's journey to be redemptive.
