Reviews - What do customers think about Strangers in Blood?

The Ugly Elephants in too Many Peoples' Living Rooms  Sep 11, 2007
Janice Law has chosen an emotionally charged and difficult topic. Family estrangements are the all-to-common unmentioned ugly elephants in many peoples' living rooms. Law's book epitomizes the very best intellectual and writing skills of an experienced journalist, trial lawyer and criminal court judge. Her writing style is clear, direct, and has a unique blend of humor, irony, and a no-nonsense dispassion that is essential for this topic.
Janice Law includes the poignant personal account of her courageous effort to heal or at least psychologically process the estrangement between she and her abusive older brother George. This intense memoir part of the book emblazons her work with special meaning. Law calls on some articulate, talented and successful colleagues in estrangement to help her journey through her painful memoir. Not the least of these folks contribution is Rod McKuen's sensitive poem, "I Always Knew", which she uses to successfully link each of her chapters. This unique book is must-reading for clergy, psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and perceptive laypersons who may benefit from its wisdom in their examined life and relationships.
Close, but estranged - surprisingly frequent.  Sep 2, 2007
It's the interweaving of the author's own experience of painful estrangement with estrangements experienced by many others - noted personalities as well as "the person next door" - that keeps one's interest alive while reading this unusual and emotionally charged book.
The shift from one to another, from the biographical to the autobiographical is telling and captivating. These are connected true stories of love,yearning, disappointment and fulfillment. You are likely to find yourself feeling all these when you read this book.
At Last!! A Book on Estrangement!!  Aug 28, 2007
Almost everyone experiences it but few write about it. Strangers in Blood is a fascinating portrayal of family estrangements -- a subject overlooked for much too long.

Janice Law alternates chapters about her family estrangement with the stories of others -- both celebrities and ordinary folk -- some stories poignant but others inspiring and humorous -- but all extremely interesting. They include Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg, TV personality, NY Times bestseller and family counselor John Bradshaw, astronaut Neil Armstrong and baseball scion Michael Veeck.

Law's personal chapters about attempts to reconcile with a very ill older brother after 30 years plus of silence are particularly heart tugging. The book includes some professional observations by experts in the field.

Strangers in Blood helps us realize that we are not alone when we face the often painful estrangement from blood kin. Very much worth the read.
