Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7-12-- Packard quotes extensively from interviews with interfaith couples and their children to give concrete examples of the issues and problems they face. After discussing the trend toward more interfaith unions and policies of various religions toward intermarriage, she explores how families practice their faiths, how parents and children cope with religious holidays, the choice of conversion or maintaining separate faiths, the reaction of parents, and the problematic and positive effects of experiencing two different religions within a home. The use of interviews makes the text interesting and lively to read; however, as various people are quoted numerous times, it gets a bit repetitive. The book may be of interest to teens dating someone of another faith as it points out some of the issues they may have to face and shows the process by which parents work out their problems in the family. A list of resource organizations and suggested fiction and nonfiction for further reading add to its usefulness. --Jane Gardner Connor, South Carolina State Library, Columbia
