After Norma Herr's sometimes violent schizophrenic episodes became too much to bear, Mira Bartok and her sister changed their names and cut off all contact in order to keep themselves safe. After seventeen years Mira would discover that her mother was homeless and dying. On her deathbed she gave Mira and her sister the key to a storage unit filled with items from the past, items that would trigger a flood of memories.

Listened to this book on audio disk. Good narrator, and a reasonably good book, but, I found the subject matter, dysfunctional family and mother who was schizophrenic very difficult to listen to, personally.

I love stories about dysfunctional families. This is about the author and her mentaly unstable mother, and their complex relationship. Pretty good.
