Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eileen Thornton was a child of divorce. She never knew her father; felt unloved by her mother. At nineteen she developed bi-polar disorder. She spent large periods of her life in sanatariums where she received innumerable electroconvulsive shock treatments. At twenty-six she gave birth to twin daughters. One died immediately. The other, a victim of cerebral palsy, spent her life in a wheelchair and succumbed to mental illness as a teenager.From the moment of her disabled daughter's birth, Eileen was always at her side in mind, body and spirit. These two never left each other's thoughts. Their relationship was the epitome of love and devotion. The story is penned by two of Eileen's children in honor of what they consider to be a remarkable example of how much a woman is willing to sacrifice for her child. It is sure to be an inspiration not only to those who, like their mother, suffer from mental illness but anyone who faces an overwhelming challenge.
