Reviews - What do customers think about Searching for Molly Parker?
Ouch! If you have loving parents, be grateful . . . . Jun 12, 2005
If you are an adoptee looking for an easy answer to your problems, be warned: Richard Frayne's book offers hope and insights - but no instant or easy solutions. His journey has been a life-long one and, although he appears to have emerged more or less in one piece, it has not been an easy ride - either for him or for those around him.
The message is that you will have to dig deep, and keep on digging, to uncover and come to terms with the trauma of being given away at birth. And that you will need professional help with this. Frayne shows how his encounters with Jungian analysis, meditation, Transactional Analysis and finally, hypnotherapy have each played their part in the jigsaw-like healing process.
There are some very funny, touching and haunting parts in this book, but the overriding impression from this book is one of the need for ruthless honesty - he has even bravely allowed his wife to write a searing account of her life with an adoptee.
This is an interesting and useful book, not just for adoptees, but for anyone who has experienced parental rejection at an early age.
Searching For Molly Parker is a Must Read! May 24, 2005
'Searching For Molly Parker' is an entertaining and insightful look into the life and mind of an adoptee. The author, Richard Frayne, educates and entertains the reader while maintaining a wonderful balance of drama, comedy and romance. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has been affected either directly or indirectly by adoption, abuse, or abandonment.
