Publisher Comments:

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

Synopsis:

Families, the bedrock of our society and culture, are today under assault from every side. Parents, struggling under their own pressures and unmet needs, do not know how to protect their children from crime, poverty, abuse, and media violence. The pursuit of money and objects has supplanted caring and intimacy--and our stressed-out children bear the consequences.

In THE SHELTER OF EACH OTHER, psychologist and bestselling author Mary Pipher does for the American family what she did for adolescent girls and their parents in Reviving Ophelia: she opens our eyes to the realities we are facing and shows us how to change the way we live. Drawing on the fascinating stories of families rich and poor, angry and despairing, religious and skeptical, and probing her own experiences, Pipher wisely and compassionately challenges each of us to find the courage to nurture and revivify the families we cherish.

Mary Pipher has written a book om which she displays incredible compassion for what it's like to be a person and to be a family in these times. She is a psychologist who demonstrates amazing awareness the interplay of the personal psyche with the larger community. She discusses how these modern times contribute to and can even cause the wide range of human suffering that finds its way into the psychologists office. Reading this book is a balm for alienation and despair.
