Primal Loss: The Now-Adult Children of Divorce Speak
With a forward by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse
“Seventy now-adult children of divorce give their candid and often heart-wrenching answers to eight questions (arranged in eight chapters, by question),
including: What were the main effects of your parents' divorce on your life? What do you say to those who claim that "children are resilient" and "children
are happy when their parents are happy"? What would you like to tell your parents then and now? What do you want adults in our culture to know about
divorce? What role has your faith played in your healing?

Primal Loss records for us the actual pain of those most wounded by divorce--children. This makes it countercultural in the best of ways. Some
suffering today is not allowed to be called suffering. It is not politically correct to say that children suffer greatly from the divorce of their
parents. This book needed to be written, and it needs to be read. It will help children of divorce know that they are not wrong in feeling this awful
loss, which, once named and brought to Christ and His Cross, can find healing and even be redemptive. It will help all who bear wounds caused by broken
marriages, including divorcées themselves, not only to see in truth what has happened, but also to seek the One whose mercy is greater than our sins
and whose Cross is our only hope. -- Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix
