In this fascinating narrative, therapist and author Catherine Gildiner presents five of what she calls her most heroic and memorable patients. They include a successful, first-generation Chinese immigrant musician suffering sexual dysfunction; a young woman whose father abandoned her at age nine with her younger siblings in an isolated cottage in the depths of winter; and a glamorous workaholic whose negligent mother greeted her each morning of her childhood with, "Good morning, Monster."

Catherine Gildiner was a clinical psychologist in private practice for 25 years. Her best-selling memoir Too Close to the Falls was published to international acclaim and was followed by two other memoirs. She lives in Toronto.

Lynne Reeves Griffin is a nationally recognized expert on relationships and family life. She is the author of the nonfiction guide, Let's Talk About It:  Adolescent Mental Health, and its companion novel, Girl Sent Away, as well as the parenting guide, Negotiation Generation:  Take Back Your Parental Authority Without Punishment.

"Catherine Gildiner is nothing short of masterful—as both a therapist and writer. In these pages, she has gorgeously captured both the privilege of being given access to the inner chambers of people's lives, and the meaning that comes from watching them grow into the selves they were meant to be."
