Editorial Reviews

Review

"The unthinkable happens every day. But it’s not every day that a writer turns it into art."
The Star-Ledger

"By cleverly shifting between recent years and the day of the crash, Mandel weaves together chapters of real and imagined scenes building to the inevitable. . . the book grapples with the random forces that shape modern life."
Publishers Weekly

"Intimately told . . . a well-balanced story of loss and hope."
The Examiner

"A very powerful memoir . . . I definitely recommend picking this one up."
Raging Bibliomania

“This touching tale of healing and understanding explores the sometimes unconscious expectations of love.”
Hartford Magazine

"Judy Mandel uses the fire from which she was born to forge a brave quest toward truth and understanding."
Tracy Kauffman-Wood, Women's Memoirs

Replacement Child is a . . . touching story any parent will relate to . . . a memoir that should not be overlooked by parents."
Midwest Book Review

“Riveting . . . I couldn't put this book down. Mandel's memoir is as riveting and gut wrenching as any piece of thriller fiction I've read."
Wendy Thomas, Bookpleasures

"This is a wonderful read . . . I did not want to put this book down. It really takes you on a journey of
one person's struggle to examine who they are and where they come from. I highly recommend this book."
The Social Frog

From the Back Cover

Replacement Child opens with the explosion of a plane crash,
the injury of a two-year-old girl and the impossible choice a mother must
make. The death of a child leaves a hole in the family that threatens to tear
it apart.

In a great act of hope, the parents give birth to a "replacement child," born to
heal wounds and provide a "salve for the burns." The child unwittingly plays
her role throughout childhood, riding the deep and hidden currents of the
family tragedy. Years later, as an adult, she discovers the truth of her family's
life-changing event and the complex layers of her own relationships with her
father, mother, and sister. Not until she finally has a child of her own does
she come to grips with what she silently has known all along: Anything can
happen. Planes fall from the sky.
