Virginia Holmans mother, in the thrall of psychosis, spirited her two daughters to a cottage on the Virginia Peninsula, painted the windows black, and set up the house as a MASH unit for a secret war. A war that never came. The family -- captive to her mothers schizophrenia and a legal system that refused to intervene -- remained there for more than three years.What sets this book apart, the Hartford Courant observed, is Virginias voice...brave, smart, tough.

Reviewers nationwide have praised Holmans riveting, endearing, and wryly humorous story of a young girl caught in the whirlwind of madness -- a girl who chooses a brainwashed heiress as her role model. Holmans memoir vividly and brilliantly evokes the interior worlds of the sane and the insane and the delicate membrane in between. An essential exploration of identity, captivity, and love, Rescuing Patty Hearst will inspire readers faith in the resilience of one familys spirit to survive and thrive even in the direst of circumstances.
