The book is narrated through the daughter's diaries and the mother's recollections and thoughts after reading the diaries. The author, Pat Engebrecht, is a former Newberry award nominee, and the book is very well written. It would seem as if the book would resonate with others who have dealt with the mental illness of a loved one. The author was a very loving mother and this book really touched my heart when I read it.
If you are lucky enough to read it, this is a book you will never forget.
When Love Is Not Enough:Chronicles of Laura Jo is an intimate, personal glimpse into LJ Engebrecht's nightmarish encounter with our universe as a being who knew that "now is all that we can ever share". This is a must read for those who wish to know more about the perspective of those who are afflicted with such conditions known as, and similar to, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). LJ's journal, along with her mother's commentaries, creates an intense portrait of a gentle soul lost in an alien universe. It is probable that the origins of BPD and similar 'disorders' lie in genetic variations that are currently beyond our ability to comprehend or alter. Those, like LJ, who suffer with these conditions are frequently gifted in other aspects of life - thereby giving us glimpses wherein we see the wonder and precious diversity of our kind.
