We Adopted a Dusty Miller is a spellbinding and unusually frank narration of the roller coaster ride parents experience when they love a difficult child and are not successful in finding help. A strong marriage, a supportive family, a sense of humor, a persistent attitude, and the ability, finally, to let go of a heartbreaking situation combine to reveal a picture of the difficult journey many parents endure. The author tells in rapid succession the experiences and feelings that are common to parents of children suffering from Reactive Attachment Disorder, and/or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome/Effect. The book describes the behavior usually present in children who are in need of therapeutic care. It provides an argument for the development of wrap-around services for these children and their families, demonstrating the need for community understanding and support. It offers a clear picture of the depth of disturbance that may be present in a child who, to outsiders, seems very charming. Having survived the experience with marriage intact, the Bosleys resolved to offer friendship and encouragement to other families traveling this difficult path in the hope that their daughter's story will not be repeated.

At the age of twenty, Matthew thought his life was set fair. He had a good career, good friends and was engaged to Wendy, his childhood sweetheart. He longed to be married and have a family, but it seems life was destined to take a different course. Wendy calls off the engagement, and devastated, Matthew goes to London to join a close friend, Ben, to work at The Christian Bookshop on their Life Courses. Although successful, his growing dissatisfaction with religion reignites a desire to challenge the very core of his faith, the Bible.All this ends in tears as Matthew falls in love with an older woman. Although the story is set in the Swinging Sixties, this still results in a huge family row and Matthew leaves to make his way in life on his own. How can Matthew ever get back to his family and the woman he loves? Will Matthew write his gospel or will his religion create insurmountable barriers? We follow Matthew’s story as he struggles to rebuild his life and to fulfil his ambitions and dreams. He has to come to terms with corruption and deceit and face betrayal and the collapse of everything he holds dear.

Are you afraid of or unable to create intimacy or closeness with your intimate partner? Do you find that sometimes you create emotional, communicative, or even physical distance from that special someone in your life, even when, deep down, you really don't want to? If so, you share the relationship style psychologists refer to as the distancer. Distancers are often afraid of being engulfed or controlled by their partners. They fear rejection, vulnerability, and dependence. Sadly, they also tend to have short and unhappy relationships. If you want to stop running from love in your life, this book offers a simple, step-by-step approach you can use to move beyond your fear of intimacy and start building strong and lasting relationships. The exercises and self-evaluations in the book will help you become aware of how you operate in romantic relationships. You'll review and reassess your relationship patterns, deciding what changes you want to make in future relationships. Then you'll commit to actions that can make it happen.
