About this title:
Synopsis:
In The Shelter of Each Other, Mary Pipher does for the American family what she did for adolescent girls and their parents in her bestselling book Reviving Ophelia: she opens our eyes wide to the desperate realities we are facing and shows us a way out. Drawing on the fascinating stories of families rich and poor, angry and despairing, religious and skeptical, and probing deep into her own family memories and experiences, Pipher clears a path to the strength and energy at the core of family life. Wise, compassionate, and impassioned, The Shelter of Each Other challenges each of us to face the truth about ourselves and to find the courage to protect, nurture, and revivify the families we cherish.



"A canny mix of optimism and practicality gives Pipher's fans a way to resist the worst of the culture around them and substitute the best of themselves."

*Newsweek



"Eye-opening . . . Pipher's simple solutions for survival in this family-unfriendly culture are peppered throughout the heart-wrenching and uplifting stories of several of her client

families. . . . Highly readable, passionate."

*San Francisco Chronicle



"Compelling."

*USA Today

From AudioFile:
Pipher says in the introduction to THE SHELTER OF EACH OTHER, "I write about families because I love them." It's apparent in her careful investigation of family structures, both traditional and modern. Pipher's words are deftly narrated with crisp articulation and thoughtfulness. What subtly unfolds--from Pipher's recounting of her own family life, as well as the families she counsels in her practice--is the lesson that we must come to a new, practical definition of "family values." This audiobook offers a gentle, yet honest, view of the shortcomings of the modern family--and possible solutions to them. R.A.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
