Iniquity: A Sean McPherson Novel, Book 4 by Laurie Buchanan

Gambino confines three best friends—Mick, a PI; Joe, a homicide detective; and Rafferty, an FBI special agent—to Pines & Quill writing retreat and pits them against each other with a warning: “Mick, if you try to save Emma, I’ll kill Joe’s daughters. Joe, if you try to save your daughters, I’ll kill Emma. And Rafferty, if you help Mick or Joe, I’ll kill your fiancée, Ivy.”

With help from the writers in residence—a fiction novelist, a retired maritime pilot, the granddaughter of a legendary pearl diver, and a prior mountain climber now double-amputee—Mick, Joe, and Rafferty manage to sneak away and journey to Mount Baker, where the captives await transport. Along the way, the three best friends learn the lines they’ll cross to save the people they love.

Sibling Therapy: The Ghosts from Childhood that Haunt Your Clients’ Love and Work by Karen Gail Lewis, PhD.

No matter how close or distant siblings are today, they are part of each other. As adults, they actually are part of two sibling sets. The original siblings are the ones who grew up together and have changed and aged together. The second set is the creation of their childhood perceptions, feelings, hurts, and resentments, as well as idealizations about the original siblings. These siblings, like ghosts, are not visible; they never age. While these siblings mostly lie dormant, when they jump into action, they distort how adults relate to their siblings now.

The “sibling ghosts” have four components—frozen images, crystallized roles, unhealthy loyalty, and sibling transference—each of which has a unique effect on one’s adult life, and all of which may be transferred onto important adults in their lives, including spouses and lovers, people at work, and friends. For therapists of all theoretical orientations, Sibling Therapy: The Ghosts from Childhood that Haunt Your Clients’ Love and Work is the first book that provides a theoretical framework for working with adult siblings and will be helpful in understanding the influences of clients’ ghosts, especially when dealing with intractable problems. The ideas and the numerous clinical examples presented here are applicable for family therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, pastoral counselors, and anyone working in a therapeutic position, as well as masters and doctoral students in these fields.

And now—on the eve of the 50-year anniversary of this rescue from horrific childhood of abuse and into the safety of the foster care system—he reflects on the battles he’s fighting in his own heart.

Addiction, Attachment, Trauma and Recovery: The Power of Connection by Oliver J. Morgan, winner of the 2020 Independent Press Award in Addiction and Recovery

A fresh take on addiction and long-lasting recovery that bridges the divide between conventional models and folds current thinking into a nested social ecology framework that opens up hidden causes of addiction. In this groundbreaking look at addiction and recovery, addiction scholar and veteran counselor Dr. Oliver Morgan shows that addiction is no longer just about neurons or genes, broken brain functioning, or faulty choices. All of these elements are nested within a person, who is likewise nested within a social ecology of interpersonal connections (families, neighborhoods, societies) and fragmented social systems that are stressed and under threat. When broken or stressed, these ecologies create a vacuum, a “hole in the heart” that demands attention. Addiction is often the result, and true recovery cannot occur without healing our broken and lost connections.

Eddie couldn’t function, couldn’t have a conversation or take a full breath, faced each year with the relentless approach of November eleventh.
