Prescription for Trouble
review 1: I enjoyed the story and characters. However, I had a problem with the timeline. In the confrontation between Cathy and the person trying to kill her, the perpetrator mentioned something happening three weeks ago that triggered the stalking and murder attempts. However, the things that happened couldn't have been happened in that short a time period. The other thing that gave me pause was that in the end Cathy was relieved to learn that her mother had been drugged and hadn't really been mentally ill. That was significant to the plot, as Cathy was concerned that she was exhibiting the same symptoms as her mother. However, it left me with the feeling that I wouldn't have liked reading that if I had a mentally ill family member. Many of us fear to some extent suffering from th... moree same illnesses as our parents, whether those diseases are mental or physical. But I was left with the feeling here that it was the stigma of mental illness that was the big issue. My late husband had Alzheimer's, and although I hated seeing him suffer with this terrible disease, I do not like anyone associating a stigma with the disease--as if a disease of the mind rather than the body is something to be ashamed of. I would have given the book 5 stars except for those two elements.
review 2: This book is about a woman who is running away from and unhappy past to start a future in her home town. She is challenged and threatened every step of the way, but she doesn't give in and flee. She finds out the truth about her parents and that she had it all wrong. So many times, we suspect the worst. We only need to find out the facts to find and give forgiveness. The book has enough about faith that it may turn the hearts of those without it. I appreciated the ending, and it was a surprise (at least to me). less
