I have the feeling that people who run perfect families will not appreciate this book. They would prefer one of those 'how-to' books, even though they don't need one because they are perfect. This book, by contrast, will certainly not tell you how to bring up your family, but it might reassure you that most of us are making the same sort of mistakes along the way. -- Adrian Plass Adrian Plass introduces us to a varied crew of characters in these humourous and touching musings on family life. If some of the people and situations seem oddly familiar, it's no surprise -- they're reflections of our own families. With true stories, fiction, dialogues, sketches and even a smattering of poetry, The Heart of the Family embraces the joys, tragedies, puzzles, problems and comedy of family life in the real world. With the author's trademark humour and stories that 'entertain at the front door while truth slips in through a side window', we see the family in a whole new -- and inspiring -- light.
