In this exclusive Lantern Books sampler, stories from memoirists and experts in the field offer insight into what it takes to make a family and to keep a family together. "The Boy Steps Out" from Ashes to Gold
by Brad Fern and Tom Lutz, a retelling of a Brothers Grimm fairytale, has startling applications to modern family life. "Reconnections" from Songs of My Families
by Kelly Fern and "The Left Breast" from Clear Cut
by Ginny Jordan are poignant excerpts from memoirs that describe the mother-child experience in the face of great uncertainty and tragedy. "An Invisible Girl: Lisa" from To Change a Mind by John A. McKinnon and "The Parent Process" from The Parallel Process
by Krissy Pozatek present family therapy case studies that further illuminate the relationship between parents and children. These selections show that although the faces of family are many, they are all based on the important tenets of love, understanding, and forgiveness.
