This review is from: Without a Map: A Memoir (Hardcover)
Meredith Hall faced life without a map. However, she's drawing a map for her sons! She's giving to her sons what her parents could not give her: encompassing, unconditional love and compassion. This powerful memoir leads us from abandonment and shame, through years of emptiness and struggle for comprehension, to examination, reflection, redemption and love. Her story is brave and honest; her writing is strong, evocative and elegant. Her path to understanding and acceptance of her parents and herself provides her sons a map for life.
