The loss that is forever: the lifelong impact of the early death of a mother or father
"The Loss That is Forever" provides a thoughtful framework for understanding the impact that early loss has on every aspect of adult development. Through extensive research, interviews with more than sixty-five men and women, and the compelling writings of such well-know figures as Virginia Woolf, C.S. Lewis, and Eleanor Roosevelt, Dr. Maxine Harris illustrates how themes of loss and survival weave through the lives of those who have lost a parent in childhood. Who one becomes, how one parents, and what one believes about the world are all shaped by the experience of a parent's early death.
