|Plot Summary of Silent Heroes, Courageous Families Living with Depression and Mental Illness|
|"At the age of 11, the author watched her previously loving, nurturing mother have a complete mental breakdown. Her mother was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and was ill the rest of her life. The author's father, the main Silent Hero, stayed to care for his wife and family, amid an almost impossible situation created by his wife's instability. This book chronicles the emotional journey of the author and the family through the process of trying to come to terms with their mother's illness, and her father's love, steadfastness, and loyalty to his wife.
The book also contains other touching family stories, as well as a great deal of educational information about mental disorders."
