As someone in recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder, I didn't care for this book at all. Lacey's mother is portrayed a violent. Most people with BPD would rather harm themselves than someone else.

Tears in the Sun is a painful read in its accuracy of what the families of those suffering with borderline personality disorder live with. It is invaluable in the insight it provides. I think it will give courage to anyone who reads it, firstly to know that what they are living with isn't the norm and secondly to get, and trust, professional help. Owenby has spun a modern day parable tackling a real issue facing our generation. Highly recommended reading.
