Praise

“Rifts and ruptures upend tens of millions of families, leaving a trail of sorrow and despair. But in this wise and moving book, Karl Pillemer combines academic rigor and practical advice to show us how to move toward reconciliation. Fault Lines is a book that will change lives.”
Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of When, Drive, and  A Whole New Mind

“Chronic, seemingly intractable estrangement blights many families in our stressed and fragmented culture. In this thoughtful, compassionate book Karl Pillemer shows that it need not be permanent and his perceptive, gentle guidance lights the way to reconciliation.”
Gabor Maté M.D., author, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction

“Fault Lines is a masterful study of the causes family estrangements, the reasons to heal, and the ways to make it happen. Don’t waste a minute. Read this book and get back together.”
—Jane Isay, author of Walking on Eggshells

“I could not stop reading this wonderful combination of new data, psychological insight, practical advice, and compassion.  It will be a terrific personal and professional resource.”
Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D. author of The Normal Bar: The Surprising Secrets of Happy Couples

“Estrangement is the mysterious, intractable and secret pain affecting millions of families (including my own). With Fault Lines, Karl Pillemer courageously rappels into the deep social crevice created by these devastating rifts. Using original research and empathic storytelling, Pillemer doesn’t just explore this territory, but he shows us a way out. This is an extremely important and insightful guide for anyone wrestling with the heartbreak of estrangement.”
Amy Dickinson, “Ask Amy” advice columnist

“This is one of the most original contributions to relationship research and literature I have seen in a long time. It is filled with real examples and practical wisdom, but perhaps most of all, every page is filled with hope.”
—Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Rhythm of Life
