From Library Journal:

Just as an abused child may become an adult child abuser, and a child of an alcoholic parent may later continue the pattern, so a child of divorced parents may have difficulty as an adult in maintaining an intimate relationship. This study suggests that a family's style of managing relationships and dealing with conflict is passed on from generation to generation. Because the coping traits of broken families are more often dysfunctional than in healthy families, "children carry into adulthood the debris of their parents' relationships." With psychological insight and numerous case studies, the authors demonstrate how the cycle can be broken and how positive changes in a person's behavior can result in the ability to achieve rewarding personal bonds. Recommended for public and academic libraries.

From Publishers Weekly:

The children of divorce, perhaps predictably, face rocky challenges in forming and maintaining their own significant relationships. In addressing the struggle of adult children of divorce to become free of their past, Beal, a practicing psychiatrist, and Hochman, a journalist, conclude that it is not the divorce itself, but the kind of family in which it occurs, that allows for successful adulthood for the children of ruptured marriages. How the parents managed their divorce and the child's role in it determines his or her behavioral maturity as an adult, according to the research and case studies cited here. A thoughtful book likely to encourage those contemplating divorce to pause and investigate healing alternatives. Author tour.
