Rebecca's Rose by Jane Hennessy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Rebecca's Rose is a dramatic memoir of three women's spiritual journey from the 1960's to the 2000's-a story about the power of love to persevere beyond human expectations. It's a true story about a family coping with the agony of a child with a severe mental disorder. Rebecca's challenging life, filled with the scream of ambulances and with courtroom drama, remains suspenseful because she fights her schizophrenia and does not surrender. In the end, the miracle is that, despite all the obstacles and all the pain, she and her family survive. Rebecca's Rose is primarily the story of a young woman's struggle with schizophrenia. But it is also about family relationships and, in particular, one sister's caregiving love for Rebecca, for her parents, and for her children. The close relationship between Jane and her mother only deepens with the approach of death, a death her mother almost welcomes. A year later, Jane's father is diagnosed with cancer and she must continue her painful journey. Jane's harrowing experiences are a cautionary tale for the baby boom generation, as sons and daughter deals with the aging, decline and impending death of their own parents.
