If you have a mentally ill family member, this novel will get to you..my mother in law was Bi-Polar. The effect of her disease impacted my husband his entire life-I totally understood Edens need to make her father better, to guide her father, to find the dad she wanted to have but didn't.
Spectacular writing, it made my heart hurt as I listened. Narration effective but Thaxton isn't a great narrator..still I couldn't stop listening.
A good war for someone who isn't familiar with the impact of mental illness on a family to discover its reality..
Well worth the credit.

This is a well written novel about loving someone who suffers from a mental illness. I appreciated the realistic dilemmas faced by both the person living with the mental illness and the ones who loved him. How does one support this person without trying to control him? How does a person love one with a mental illness and not lose herself in the chaos? Does medication help or does it create as many problems as it is supposed to be solving? The book was beautifully narrated and executed. The story in no way sugarcoated the issues involved in living with mental illness but the characters were not without hope or sprinkles of joy. It was a satisfying read.(listen.)
