Kirkus Reviews

“The heavy-hearted memoir of a woman who lost her mother and daughter to the bitter grip of mental illness.

“Penned in a vivid, literary style that bleeds anguish, Pruchno’s story is a mother’s worst nightmare.  Since the book centers on a young person and leaves such a powerful impression, it would make a solid supplementary text for a college psychology course. Pruchno’s feelings of desperation and powerlessness speak more to the reality of mental illness than an academic case study ever could.

“An unvarnished look at the destructiveness of mental illness as told by a person who suffered at the hands of someone else’s demons.”
