"There are three kinds of secrets," best-selling author Mary Pipher says in her poignant 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." After decades of exploring the lives of others through her writing and therapy, Mary Pipher turns her attention to herself-culling insights from her own life to highlight the importance of the journey, not just the destination.

Professional reviews

"From the first sentences it's clear this is a narration by a consummate pro. Kymberly Dakin's vocal quality seems formal at first, but it's utterly calm and so connected to this writing that listeners almost immediately forget anyone else is reading and hear only the essence of Mary Pipher and her story. Pipher is a mature storyteller whose responses to her uneven family experiences and self-critical ways come across as uplifting rather than melodramatic or self-pitying. She unfolds her lifelong efforts to slow down and be kinder to herself with the secure tone of someone who knows the redemptive power of self-acceptance, family, and community. The production's warm sound and nurturing lessons offer an endless supply of inspiration and comfort. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
