why me

72 Hour Hold by Bebe Moore Campbell (321 pgs/read 20) 2005

Picked up this book thinking it would be my next I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb. They have similar subject matter (dealing with the breakdown of a mentally ill family member) and the Lamb book is in my top 25. I was underwhelmed. Campbell writes fine, but the “I’ve led a perfect life, so God, why would you plague me with an imperfect daughter” thing grates on me. I’d recommend it to fans of faith-affirming novels.
