Losing our parents when we ourselves are adults is in the natural order of things a rite of passage into true adulthood But whether we lose them suddenly or after a prolonged illness and whether we were close to or estranged from them this passage proves inevitably more difficult than we thought it would be A much needed and knowledgeable discussion of this adult phenomenon The Orphaned Adult validates the wide array of disorienting emotions that can accompany the death of our parents by sharing both the author s heart felt experience of loss and the moving stories of countless adults who have shared their losses with him From the recognition of our own mortality and sudden child like sorrow to a sometimes subtle change in identity or shift of roles in the surviving family The Orphaned Adult guides readers through the storm of change this passage brings and anchors them with its compassionate and reassuring wisdom
