This was one of the first books I read about the death of a parent in childhood. I have read quite a few now, and I can still say that this book helped me to forgive myself for the way I was responding to my father's death when I was a sixteen. Not many people are in the same boat as I, at least, that I have run into, and the stories told here often rang true for me as well.
Publishers Weekly, 1995-07-17 More than 60 men and women who lost a parent at an early age contributed their stories to this investigation of an important life event by a practicing psychotherapist. Their storiesæincluding accounts of some famous figures: C.S. Lewis, Virginia Woolf, Eleanor Rooseveltæshed light on a legacy of loss the author views as ``the psychological Great Divide, separating the world into a permanent `before and after.'" Whatever form the impact of this loss takes in later adult lifeæit can be rage, driving ambition, fear of intimacyæthese life stories amply demonstrate the indelible character of the mark left on the child. These are also stories of recovery, of people who became more than survivors, testifying to the repair of damage from childhood trauma. This enlightening presentation opens up a seldom discussed topic. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
