Item description for Battered Heart by Segal Aina...

In her memoir Battered Heart, Latvian-born Aina Segal, for years a nomadic refugee, now a successful psychotherapist in Sarasota, takes her place on the other side of the couch. Segal, outwardly elegant and self-assured, unzips her heart, spilling out and examining her life as a displaced person. In a world where the media presents horrifying, often mind- numbing news of tragedy, Segal personalizes the cruelty of war and celebrates the strength of the human spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Battered Heart?

Battered Heart  Jan 19, 2007
An extraordinary woman's adventure from her bucolic childhood in Latvia to the chaos and turmoil of World War II, and finally her arrival, penniless, to the United States.
The reader relives a determined woman's quest to succeed despite adversity. I cried, laughed and rejoiced in her magnificent saga.
A must read!  Jan 2, 2007
A book that you can't put down - a celebration of life. A courageous womans jouney to find herself. Everyone should read this book!
Refugee life through a therapist's eyes  Jan 1, 2007
In her memoir Battered Heart, Latvian-born refugee Aina Segal examines the effects of war on ordinary lives changed forever by world-shaking political events. She tells her story with, at times, the voice of a child, the life experience of an adult, and the unique perspective of her professional training as a counselor.
Six years old when the nightmarish journey began, moving from one DP camp to the next, she survived by the single-minded strength and creativity of her mother and, when he finally found them, her father.
As she searches for her physical and emotional home, Segal candidly writes of her struggle to find her way through her life as a refugee, a woman and a mother. Her survivor's guilt, conversion to Judaism, and loss of her child color her quest and eventual finding of love and her chosen career. Although historically the story begins in the 1930s, the issues and experiences are a mirror for current world and personal events.
