PRAISE FOR "REVIVING OPHELIA"
"An important book . . . Pipher shines high-beam headlights on the world of
teenage girls."--"Los Angeles Times"
"Mary Pipher's "Reviving Ophelia" has the combination just right. [She] offers commonsensical, unthreatening solutions. Readers find Ophelia both heartbreaking and exhilarating."--"Time"
PRAISE FOR "THE SHELTER OF EACH OTHER"
"Mary Pipher is that rarity in these days of culture wars: She can talk about values without self-righteousness. She reclaims some common sense in the dialogue about family."--"The Seattle Times"
"A canny mix of optimism and practicality gives Pipher's fans a way to resist the
worst of the culture around them and substitute the best of themselves."--"Newsweek"
PRAISE FOR "ANOTHER COUNTRY"
"[The] combination of cultural and psychological factors is this excellent book's greatest strength. . . . She is especially acute at spotting pressure points where culture, both past and present, collides cruelly with individual emotional needs."--"The Washington Post"
"Packs an emotional wallop . . . [Pipher] writes about the very topics, the very
fears, that many readers have dodged their whole lives."--"Houston Chronicle"
The Middle of Everywhere moves beyond the headlines, into the hearts and souls of refugees as they seek sanctuary in a foreign land. Pipher shows us the effects of trauma on identity, perceives the characteristics of strong people who survive terrible events and go on to build better lives. These are the lessons to be learned from the people in this book: a better understanding of who we are, and a richer understanding of where we are.
