Robert V. Hine is a distinguished historian retired from UC Riverside and now affiliated with University of California, Irvine. My heart went out to Mr. Hine while reading this book. He is the author of two memoirs, Broken Glass (UNM Press) and Second Sight, as well as numerous history publications. The love and support that this man, and his wife, gave to their adopted daughter was above and beyond what many people would do. I truly admire him.

When Robert Hine's daughter, Elene, first showed signs of unhappiness as a little girl, no one dreamed she would grow up to have a serious personality disorder. As an early "baby boomer," Elene reached adolescence and young womanhood in the midst of the counterculture years. Her father, a respected professor of American history at the University of California, shares the story of his family's struggle to keep Elene on track and functional, to see her through her troubles with delusions, medication, and eventually to help her raise her own children.

Candid in its portrayal of the suffering Elene and her parents endured and the stumbling efforts of doctors and hospitals, Hine's story is also generous and inspiring. In spite of unimaginable difficulties, Elene and her father preserved their relationship and survived.

"My daughter has given me permission to go ahead with the effort, [but] I know she would react quite differently to many of the events. Where I felt sadness and dejection, she very likely felt release and exultation. Where I felt helplessness, she very likely felt in happy control. Where I saw confusion and delusion, she may well have seen purpose and steadiness. This is not the story she would tell. It is solely mine, solely the viewpoint of one man, solely a father's feelings about his daughter."--from Robert Hine's Preface to Broken Glass

Pure love and hardships of parenting. Even though your children become adults, they always need the love and support of their parents. Mr. And Mrs. HINE WERE EXCEPTIONAL people and wonderful loving parents.

A good book. This tells the journey of a family that adopts a child who ultimately has severe mental illnesses. So tragic and sad.

Excellent read!!

This book was well written and interesting. Reading this book helped me to understand what it is like for parents who deal with a child who has mental illness. Robert Hine was very candid in his account of this family struggle to deal with the chaos and the joys of loving someone who has a different road in life to travel. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about how mental illness affects families.

This is my second reading on mental illness. Robert Hines gave me what I was looking for, an intimate view into a family dealing with schizophrenia. As the reader I find I have no room to make judgements on this family. For the life of me, I can't imagine living with this disease! And I am a 35 yr veteran of nursing. Based solely on his writings, I saw the Hines family as going above and beyond what many families would have or could have possibly tolerated. Sadly, I saw much evidence that Mr. Hines laid a lot of blame on himself. For example, he referred to a concept implying that unusually effective parenting can often minimize or fend off schizophrenia. I for one would love to see the research on that concept! and to counteract the theory of faulty genetics, he questions how do we explain the heavy predominance of winter and spring births of schizophrenics? At the very least there is a 50-50 chance of that happening! Mr Hines felt that the parent sees in any situation may likely be viewed by the child in a completely different light.. Well, that is true of virtually every childhood memory, regardless of mental illness. I guess my hope is that Mr. Hines learns to cut himself a hugh break. Based on this story that he's been brave enough to share, I think he was very likely an excellent dad. I hope this book was therapeutic for him. I certainly got what I was looking for in reading it. And finally, its a darn good read! I read it cover to cover in one sitting ... couldn't put it down.

Broken Glass is a compelling novel that examines a family's interaction with mental illness. Hine, both author and father, asks in his final chapter, "don't we only know ourselves in relation to others we know or love?" and it is this relationship that he examines throughout the book.

Hine's quest to understand his daughter's mind and motivations - in the face of what would seem to be overwhelming adversity - reflects both his love for his daughter and his need to make rational sense of her mind.

Written with an awareness of the societal pressures and beliefs that were in play during the early years of Elena's development, the novel demonstrates how their family is defined by the times within which they live; playing again the theme that we are all defined by that with which we intersect.

I have had to deal with similar family issues. I feel the same way, that somehow these people are ultra-intelligent, and super sensitive, which somehow makes them not able to deal with the world. I could never keep up with the constant rescues/ interventions like the Hines did for their daughter. The truth is, I have my own problems, and worry about myself. I am sandwiched between 2 generations plus, of mental illness. I don't think I'm in a good position to be the one to help. I have found even less public support with my loved ones than the Hines did. I am overly depended on by those who expect strength from me, that I just don't have. The book was very good in explaining that people who look homeless, crazy, defiant, and even criminal, may actually be highly intelligent, and come from good families who have tried to help. It is a testimony to what these families can go through, for years, with no end in sight. You are not alone. The Hines did everything they possibly could. And still, it's heart-breaking. Let the world, particularly employers of families who are dealing with such things, realize that although everyone has stress in their lives, it is not all the same in the level of impact. If I can still do my job, get off my back about being tired for God sakes. I have a reason to be tired. If my loved one had cancer, the community would pull together to support me, even donate their days off so I may take them instead... not so when it comes to mental illness. Not so at all. No compassion what-so-ever. The book may help people understand. Unfortunately, those who read it are probably the ones who already know all about the problems and its impact on families.
Mental illness from the family's perspective. Excellent. This author has helped me as a family member to understand the illness a little better.
