"Simple solutions for survival in this family-unfriendly culture...Eye-opening...heart-wrenching and uplifting."-- San Francisco Chronicle

Even more resonant today than at its original publication in 1996, The Shelter of Each Other traces the effects of our society's "anti-family" way of life, where parents are overtaxed, children are undersupervised, and technology is rapidly dictating how we interact. As she did in her number-one bestseller Reviving Ophelia , Mary Pipher illuminates how our families are suffering at the hands of shifting cultural norms, and she snaps our gaze into crisp focus. 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. Compassionate and heart-wrenching, The Shelter of Each Other is an impassioned call for us to gather our families in our arms and hold on to them for dear life.

Absolutely amazing book. I have read it cover to cover and consider getting my own copy as this is a must have book on my family's book shelf. Very easy to read, very personal, highly relevant to all family, especially with young children.
