Summary
February 15, 2001: Skokie, Illinois. An elderly woman named Sonia Reich flees her home, insisting that someone is trying to kill her. It will take a year for her son, Chicago Tribune reporter Howard Reich, to understand the cause of her delusions - not Alzheimer's, not dementia, but post-traumatic stress disorder. Howard locates and confers with the few experts in the world who can explain the obscure phenomenon of late-onset PTSD. He also travels to the Ukrainian city where Sonia was born - and barely escaped Nazi atrocities - to uncover the horrors that now haunt his mother. Finally, Howard ventures beyond Sonia's story to ask what can be done for today's traumatized young people, such as victims of Hurricane Katrina, to give them a fighting chance at avoiding Sonia's fate decades from now
