THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER’Essential, clever and kind’ Alain de Botton’I am a huge admirer of Julia’s work’ Elizabeth Day____________________In her bestselling follow-up to Grief Works and This Too Shall Pass, much-loved psychotherapist Julia Samuel invites us into her sessions as she explores the relationships that have the power to touch us and hurt us most: those with our family. Through eight beautifully told case studies, covering a variety of families across multiple generations, she analyses common issues from losing a parent to children leaving home, and from separation to step-relationships.

In doing so she shows how much is, in fact, inherited — and how much can be healed when it is faced together. Every Family Has A Story provides the tools that will help with this work of improving our relationships.

Its twelve touchstones for family well-being show how to communicate effectively, set boundaries, fight productively and allow change. This is a wise and insightful exploration of modern life that will help us create the families we wish for. ____________________’Julia Samuel writes with unfailing grace, tenderness and consummate storytelling.
