About the Book
A family built, a family lost. This is the story of the power of love and compassion. Growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s, Kari O’ Driscoll was taught that strength= stoicism and that a girl’s job was to take care of everyone else. For decades, she believed that and did what she could try and keep the remaining parts of her family together, systematically anticipating disaster and fixing catastrophes one by one. Until she broke. Despite trying to escape it, Kari found herself right back in the lap of loss as an adult and had to discover how to truly, profoundly care for those she loves without putting herself at risk.
