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.

Drawing on her years of experience as a therapist, Pipher gives us solutions to the problems facing our society by focusing on its most basic unit: the family. Pipher argues that by building strong families, even those made up of friends, society will benefit from morally responsible children. With many practical suggestions on how to strengthen our ties to family, friends, and the community at large, this is a must-read book even for those of us without children of our own.

From Our Editors

The bedrock of our society and culture, families of today are under assault from every side. Parents struggling under their own pressures and unmet needs don't 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 stressed-out children bear the consequences. In The Shelter of Each Other, psychologist and best-selling 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 stories of families rich and poor, angry and despairing, Pipher challenges each of us to find the courage to nurture and revivify the families we cherish.
