"Broke my heart in all the right ways ... a triumphant memoir." -- Lee Martin, From Our House and The Bright Forever "A must-read, full of grace." -- Kate Hopper, Ready for Air and Use Your Words: A Writer's Guide for Mothers "For readers seeking to learn about resiliency, growth, and ways of coping, Intertwined: A Mother's Memoir has much to offer." -- Booklist How does a woman go from being a normal Midwestern mom to sitting across the table from a bounty hunter? That's what Kathleen English Cadmus wondered as she took one more surreal step in her quest to find and save her teenage daughter, Laura. The beautiful baby Kathleen had adopted from Korea was on the run again, fueled by another manic episode brought on by her bipolar disorder. Having already lost her son Shawn to a tragic accident, Kathleen couldn't bear the thought that she had failed to protect another one of her children. Intertwined: A Mother's Memoir is a raw but loving tribute to the pain and beauty of motherhood--the story of a mother, a daughter, a son, two marriages, and the way all of those lives are at once distinct yet inseparable. Intertwined illustrates the way the people we love become part of us--become us --and show us who we truly are. Features four pages of photos!
