R came The family captive to Patty Hearst Growing Up Sane Kindle her mother's schizophrenia and a legal system that refused to intervene remained there for than three years What sets this book apart the Hartford Courant observed is Virginia's voicebrave smart tough Reviewers nationwide have praised Holman's riveting endearing Patty Hearst Growing MOBI #239 and wryly humorous story of a young girl caught in the whirlwind of madne This was a memoir of Holman’s experience growing up with a mentally ill mother The narrative alternates sporadically between her childhood and adulthood offering memories and insights It was interesting to see how in the mid 70s and even in the 80s it was nearly impossible to get professional help for a mentally ill family member without that person’s explicit consentThe book description isn’t exactly accurate It states the author and her sister were kidnapped by their mother and implies they were in captivity for four years Yes Holman’s mother’s illness made her say and do a lot of erratic things and she manipulated her children and her husband but once the dad arrived at the scene of the “kidnapping” a family owned cabin they lived as a family Holman went to school and church had a best friend and her aunt uncle and cousins lived within walking distance This is not really a problem I had with the book itself but a problem I had with the marketingI understand that the author related to Patty Hearst and felt that she and the heiress had something in common That they had to figure out how to become themselves again after living under extreme stress However this could have been tied up better in the book especially considering the book’s title
