Fallen out with your sister and can't seem to make up? Not speaking to your mother-in-law after a silly row? Haven't seen your father in years...? This text looks at the issues that tear people apart - from the extremes such as incest, violence and betrayal to the more everyday things that divide us such as money, sex and sibling rivalry. The author uses a practical approach to explore what causes conflict and provides detailed strategies to achieve reconciliation. Heartfelt practical advice and first person accounts reveal the process of mending emotional wounds by honouring and staying true to your own feelings. She explains that reconciliation is not the same as forgiveness and that it is possible to have a relationship without necessarily having to forgive.

Summary: In her classic books The Courage to Heal and Allies in Healing, Laura Davis helped millions cope with the trauma of child sexual abuse. Her supportive guide Becoming the Parent You Want to Be taught parents to create a vision for their families. Now, in I Thought We'd Never Speak Again, she tackles another critical, emerging issue: reconciling relationships sundered by betrayal, anger, and misunderstanding. With her trademark clarity and compassion, Davis maps the reconciliation process through gripping firstperson stories of people who have reconciled under a wide variety of difficult circumstances. In these pages, parents reconcile with children, embittered siblings reconnect, estranged friends reunite, and war veterans and crime victims meet with their enemies. Davis weaves these powerful accounts with her own experiences reconciling with her mother after a long, painful estrangement. Making a crucial distinction between reconciliation and forgiveness, Davis explains how people can make peace in relationships without necessarily forgiving past hurts. Step by step, she clarifies the qualities needed for reconciliation-including maturity, discernment, determination, courage, communication, and compassion. To help readers gauge their own readiness, she includes a self-assessment entitled "Are You Ready for Reconciliation?" as well as a special section called "Ideas for Reflection and Discussion." On each page of this inspiring and instructive book, Laura Davis offers hope and help for reconciliation between individuals, and in the larger human family, sharing essential keys for resolving troubled relationships and finding peace.
