Songs of Three Islands: A Memoir: A Personal Tale of Motherhood and Mental Illness in an Iconic American Family Songs of Three Islands: A Memoir: A Personal Tale of Motherhood and Mental Illness in an Iconic American Family

by Millicent Monks

Book Reviews

" . . . a brilliant, hauntingly beautiful, melancholy memoir that is must reading for all who have been brushed by the wing of mental illness."
-- William S. Cohen, Former US Secretary of Defense and author of Love in Black and White

"Courageous and beautiful."
-- Ralph Nader

"Enthralling . . . is a testament to the importance of family love and of the saving power of a strong marriage."
-- Charles Handy, author of The Empty Raincoat

"Songs of Three Islands is a multi-layered weave of family memoir, myth and Jungian premonition that reads at times like a gothic novel."
-- The Guardian

"... lyrical memoir, which tells the physical journey of a family from one island to the next. It also explores, for the first time publicly, the thread of mental illness woven through the seemingly glittering tapestry."
-- The New York Times
