In this inspiring memoir, the author of Reviving Ophelia explores her personal search for understanding, tranquility, and respect through her work as a psychologist and seeker. "There are three kinds of secrets, " Pipher says. "Those we keep from everyone, those we keep from certain people, and those we keep from ourselves. Writing this book forced me to deal with all three." After decades of exploring the lives of others through her writing and therapy, Pipher turns her attention to herself--culling insights from her own life to highlight the importance of the journey, not just the destination. She tells her own remarkable story, and in the process reveals truths about our search for happiness and love. While her story is unique, the basic map and milestones are universal--reflecting on her life in a way that allows readers to reimagine theirs.--From publisher description.

The success of her New York Times bestseller, Reviving Ophelia, triggered a personal crisis in Mary Pipher. She became overwhelmed by the attention and demands on her time and resented the way it changed her life. The result is this book, which chronicles her journey back to self-acceptance and joy. This is a book you know you will want to re-read from the first chapter.
