Description



About the Book



"The Orphaned Adult" validates the wide array of disorienting emotions that can accompany the death of one's parents by sharing the author's heart-felt experience of loss as well as the moving stories of countless other adults.



Book Synopsis



This "wise and caring book" (Library Journal) is a guide to understanding and coping with grief and all of the disorienting emotions that accompany the death of our parents.
Losing our parents when we ourselves are adults is in the natural order of things, a rite of passage into true adulthood. But whether we lose them suddenly or after a prolonged illness, and whether we were close to or estranged from them, this passage proves inevitably more difficult than we thought it would be. From the recognition of our own mortality and sudden child-like sorrow to a sometimes-subtle change in identity or shift of roles in the surviving family, The Orphaned Adult guides readers through the storm of change this passage brings and anchors them with its compassionate and reassuring wisdom.



Review Quotes

A gem to be treasured, a truly life-affirming accomplishment."--Rabbi Earl Grollmanm, D.H.L., D.D., author of Living When a Loved One Has Died
