Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A startling prediction: by the year 2000 the most common type of family will be the stepfamily, not the single-parent or nuclear family. Best-selling author Bloomfield (Inner Joy, LJ 8/80; Making Peace with Your Parents, LJ 10/1/83), himself a stepparent, covers the topic thoroughly and passionately. His theme centers on being proud of being part of a stepfamily, and to this end Bloomfield describes the commitment and perseverance needed to make it work. He discusses everything from money matters to dealing with many grandparents. The bibliography includes 40 books for stepparents and 25 for stepchildren, and an appendix lists appropriate organizations and hotlines. For most public libraries.-- Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, Pa.
