About this title


In a book that is destined to strike a chord with baby boomers everywhere, journalist Victoria Secunda illustrates how losing a parent has a profound effect on the lives of adults. Drawing from her original study of more than 100 adults as well as her own experiences, Secunda addresses a myriad of issues, such as: How does this event transform relationships with ones siblings, spouse, friends, children, or own identity? Most importantly, Secunda explores how losing a parent dramatically reshapes ones sense of self, causing a re-evaluation of ones life and choices in ways that were not possible before.
