Item description for Living With Mt. Vesuvius by Pam Schuck...
Overview A daughter's journey with a mentally ill mother and the experiences God gave her to endure The author weaves into our hearts tales of her childhood, adolescence, and adult years spent with a mother who battled the demons of mental illness and depression. The mother ached for an alcoholic husband who abandoned her with two small children, struggled every day to support her family, and unleashed her anger on her children. She was the author's Mt. Vesuvius, a volatile, unpredictable Italian volcano that erupted in rage and bitterness. As the author grew older, she gained a unique appreciation for the people and experiences placed by God in her path to help her grow, survive, and even bloom despite the volcanic ashes that nearly buried her. This is a story of courage, spirit, fight, and survival. The author shares this deeply personal journey to inspire readers to give thought to the adversities dealt to them, to learn life's lessons, and then to move forward with courage, dignity, and unabashed hope.

Uplifting, a "feel-good" book Jun 17, 2004
The author shares her story, and her quest through life, and tells how to see the good in what could be perceived as the worst. What I like about this book is that the author tells her story with the intention of reaching out and helping readers recognize the heroes in their life, their mission in life; she descibes how God has allowed her to see goodness in life during times of hardship.
