An example of the power of narrative, these are the stories of 19 families who have overcome trauma and painful deprivations. The often surprising tales of resilience and stamina shatter stereotypes about who is sensitive, why people commit to each other, and how families survive impossible circumstances and violations. The stories involve a range of ethnicities and are written with such skill that for most listeners the hours will fly. The author is optimistic about how new family paradigms can become crucibles for healthy and robust human beings. Alan Nebelthau's perfectly modulated narration is immensely satisfying. With this material, he tactfully lets the richness in these stories unfold without calling attention to his vocal talent. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
