This book will change the trajectory of how families discuss the evolution of another family
into the depths of mental illness. It was so insightful that I stayed up ‘til 2am
to finish it and boy was it worth it!

This book is a must read, Dr Williams did an outstanding job telling her story about her relationship with her mother and her family. The book has inspired me to look at my own relationship with my mother and family and how God has moved in all of our lives. I highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with taking care of a parent and wanting to find peace and understanding during this journey.

I didn't know what to think we I picked up this book. When I finished it, I was thinking of so many things. Would I put my life on hold to care for my mother. Or sister or brothers. Did our parents get the medical treatment they needed back then ? We looked at people with mental illness so differently. Dr. Sheila, thank you for sharing and making me look in the mirror. An excellent read from a remarkable woman.

As a mental health therapist, I highly recommend this book. The author, Dr.Sheila D.Williams, embodies the spirit of transparency, grace, and relentless love as she shares the story of many through the lived experience of her mother’s triumph and struggles with a mental illness. The candid nature In which Dr.Sheila presents her story is enlightening and relatable.

My Mother’s Keeper is a must read. I did not want to put it down once I started reading it. Dr. Sheila D. Williams writes in a way that you can feel her emotions as your reading along. Truly touching. I can not wait for her next read!!

Thank you, Dr. Sheila D. Williams, for your sharing your family struggles. So many of our families have and continue to struggle with mental illness and it must be talked about. Thank you for writing this candid book. It educated and blessed me. Please do not stop writing, talking, and teaching about this issue. You open up dialogue in places you would never think about.
Sincerely,
Tanya Graham

Dr. Williams shares her story with authenticity and grace. I read it cover to cover without pause. I even passed it to my own mother and daughter. They both were touched by the truth that resonated in them from this book. I am a mother with MS and this book gave me hope for my children's future. They too will rise from the adversity and struggle of an ill parent with compassionate and strong hearts.

What an awesome women of God! Dr. Shelia
truly opened up her heart in this book. If only I
had the pleasure of spending those same moments
with my dad. This book will give you a better
appreciation
of love, life, happiness and how important it is to
to seek healing after traumatic experiences.
Thank you Dr. S. Williams
