Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A generous book conceived and executed by a compassionate…mind.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“An absorbing chronicle of discovery.”
—Booklist 

“This is an insightful and terribly personal memoir of an active and successful life, and of how [Pipher’s] almost desperate need for inner peace amid the noise of her world has dominated so many of her days.”
—Lincoln Journal Star

"There are three kinds of secrets," Mary Pipher writes in this memoir. "Those we keep from everyone, those we keep from certain people, and those we keep from ourselves. Writing this book forced me to deal with all three." From any perspective, Seeking Peace is revelatory. In books such as Reviving Ophelia and The Shelter of Each Other, psychologist Pipher became famous by writing about others. In this sensitive confessional, she describes her unconventional childhood in small-town Nebraska; her deep passion for working with people; and her painful realization that her fame was ruining her life. This touching book tells us much about learning to come to peace with ourselves.
