Trish’s book details her childhood with a mom who suffered from severe depression and a father who lived the highs and lows of bipolar disease. It’s a story of cigarette smoke, suicide attempts and broken hearts.
It’s also a story of accepting the messiness, as Trish calls it, of family in order to enjoy its blessings. As an adult, Trish and her mom become best friends. It’s a relationship that cancer ends much too soon.
And yet it’s not a book about self-pity or blame. Her book looks back at her family’s struggles with honesty and humor. It’s really a story of how we take the good with the bad and learn somehow to see that it all can be just right.
