Lucky by Alice Sebold

What should be a tragedy with the power to destroy the human spirit, is transformed into a brutal honesty that uplifts and inspires hope. This is a "MUST READ" for anyone who wishes to tap into their own personal strength.

Secrets

Jennifer, April 10, 2007

This is an incredibly diverse book that slides from emotion to emotion with ease. I'm an avid reader, and easily bored with bad writing, and this book rivetted me from cover to cover. I found myself giggling with her characters, feeling the pull of thier struggles, and even crying along with them over my lunch in a resturant. This book, as well as all of Leslea Newman's short story books, moved me.

The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defenses of the Personal Spirit by Donald Kalsched
The Inner World of Trauma: Archetypal Defenses of the Personal Spirit

Jennifer, May 7, 2006

Kalsched offers an understanding of how trauma (ongoing and one incident) affects a person's ability to trust his or her perception of the world and those with whom he or she is in relationship. He delves into soul wounds, not forgetting to address somatic conerns. This is the best book I have read on trauma to date.
