After losing a loved one, "pay attention to the ways in which your relationship continues."
So advised Sarah Horowitz in an interview she gave the day before her unexpected death. In A Cracking of the Heart, David Horowitz explores the legacy of his extraordinary daughter's short life, and narrates his quest for a deeper understanding of the child he lost.

A remarkable woman and gifted writer, Sarah was afflicted with a birth condition that, while complicating and ultimately shortening her life, never affected her dreams. From an early age, she displayed inspiring courage in facing her own difficulties and boundless compassion for the underserved and overlooked in many communities, from an autistic niece in her own family to uneducated children in Africa.

A Cracking of the Heart chronicles the separation of father and daughter through political and familial conflicts, and their slow reunion. Alternately searing and uplifting, it reconciles what could have been with what is, taking the reader through a father's love, frustration, admiration, and grief, to what lies beyond.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for A Cracking of the Heart

"Horowitz puts forth a touching and deeply told story between father and daughter. Similar backgrounds branch off into entirely different beliefs and lifestyles and yet with each turning page we see that blood runs far deeper than politics. A very engaging read."
--Robert Duvall, Academy Award-winning actor

"David Horowitz's book is filled with the passion born of love and commitment to family. It is a guide to family love and the triumphs of a wonderful daughter."
--Juan Williams, author of Eyes on the Prize

"This extraordinary book is a father's tribute to an amazing daughter who took on the problems of her community and her world with no regard to her own physical limitations. We treasure the time we had with this activist who left the world too soon and are deeply moved by her father's determination to tell her story that others might walk in her path."
--Ruth Messinger, President, American Jewish World Service

"David Horowitz understands tikkun olam from the inside out. He's one of those rare activists who is willing to learn from experience, from doubt, and from other people. I encourage you all to do the same by engaging with his fine and heartfelt book."
--Douglas Rushkoff, author of Life Inc. and Nothing Sacred

"A Cracking of the Heart will indeed crack your heart, as it did mine. Rarely has a parent written so movingly of the life and death of a child as David Horowitz has of his physically disabled yet powerfully alive daughter, Sarah. It is inconceivable to me that there is a parent--or child--who will not be deeply affected by the wisdom and the humanity of this book."
--Dennis Prager, nationally syndicated radio talk show host, columnist, and bestselling author of Happiness Is a Serious Problem
