The Midwest Book Review has given The Light in His Soul a wonderful, thoughtful review.
"Belief, endurance, and finding an underlying joy and purpose in even the most cruel of adversities lies at the heart of The Light in His Soul. Where other memoirs and similar-sounding accounts focus on darkness and survival against all odds, Schaper's story takes the extra step to uncover riches, understanding, learning experiences and life-affirming joy against all odds; and this is what makes The Light in His Soul a unique story worth pursuing."
"This book is as much about the author's self-inspection as it is about helping her brother, and this too is a fine piece of the family puzzle that lends to warmth, insight, and revelation... "
"It's a title designed to not just capture a singular life or experience, but to expand awareness of the experience of interacting with a schizophrenic family member who inherits a legacy of abuse and mental illness, but who is still loved, respected, and treasured as part of that family. "
"Families in similar circumstances will want to take away a big piece of Schaper's positivity to apply to their own unique situations."
