My Sisters Keeper: Learning to Cope with a Siblings Mental Illness by Margaret Moorman

When Margaret Moormans older sister, Sally, was first hospitalized with schizophrenia in 1959, her family denied the truth to neighbors, friends -- and even themselves. Not until thirty years later, when their mothers death made her Sallys sole caretaker, did Margaret face the truth. Now, in this poignant memoir, she tells the brave story of her struggle to come to grips with the legacy of her sisters devastating disease and its effect on her own life and on her entire family. Margaret reveals her fears that she too would become ill and her ambivalence about having a family of her own. She writes about the difficulties of assuming the responsibility for Sallys care while trying to manage her own career, relationships, and the birth of her first child. And she tells how she and Sally finally learned to negotiate their relationship and accept each other. Candid, moving, and ultimately healing, My Sisters Keeper is a heartwarming story about two sisters and their love for each other. Hallmark has presented My Sisters Keeper as a film starring Kathy Bates, Elizabeth Perkins, and Lynn Redgrave. Book jacket.
