$15.99
A book for anyone faced with a midlife divorce, this guide walks readers through surviving the emotional and practical fallout of a marriage's end--and with humor and sympathy, urges readers to see the bright future waiting just ahead. The shock of a divorce can be devastating for women who thought, after decades of marriage, that their relationships were secure, their futures safe. Suzy Brown was one of those women. When her marriage of over twenty-five years ended because of her husband's affair with a younger woman, she found herself overwhelmed by the numbers of women she knew in her same situation. She started a small support group that has proven invaluable, and now she's sharing with readers what she and her friends learned through their experiences of tragedy, healing, and joy.

The first book to explore the idea and effect of moral injury on veterans, their families, and their communities

Although veterans make up only 7 percent of the U.S. population, they account for an alarming 20 percent of all suicides. And though treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder has undoubtedly alleviated suffering and allowed many service members returning from combat to transition to civilian life, the suicide rate for veterans under thirty has been increasing. Research by Veterans Administration health professionals and veterans' own experiences now suggest an ancient but unaddressed wound of war may be a factor: moral injury. This deep-seated sense of transgression includes feelings of shame, grief, meaninglessness, and remorse from having violated core moral beliefs.

Rita Nakashima Brock and Gabriella Lettini, who both grew up in families deeply affected by war, have been working closely with vets on what moral injury looks like, how vets cope with it, and what can be done to heal the damage inflicted on soldiers' consciences. In Soul Repair, the authors tell the stories of four veterans of wars from Vietnam to our current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan--Camillo "Mac" Bica, Herman Keizer Jr., Pamela Lightsey, and Camilo Mejía--who reveal their experiences of moral injury from war and how they have learned to live with it. Brock and Lettini also explore its effect on families and communities, and the community processes that have gradually helped soldiers with their moral injuries.

Soul Repair will help veterans, their families, members of their communities, and clergy understand the impact of war on the consciences of healthy people, support the recovery of moral conscience in society, and restore veterans to civilian life. When a society sends people off to war, it must accept responsibility for returning them home to peace.
