Read full description of the books The Beauty of What Remains:Susan Hadler, grew up with many secrets in her childhood. Her mother barely spoke about Ms Hadler's father who died in WWII and rarely mentions her two sisters who she was close as a child but not in contact with anymore. The Beauty of What Remains is the story of Ms Handler's brave search to find out who they were and why they were cut-off or missing from the family history. In this journey Ms Hadler learned about her mother's deep need to protect herself from feeling her own heartbreaking losses and inability to faced the trauma she experienced when her husband died. Subsequently she became unable to cope with the complex dynamics between her and her sisters. Despite her mother's pain and anger about her daughter's search, Ms Hadler delicately and respectfully, unravels the missing pieces of her family history. The book is part history, part memoir and also part mystery as the clues to her aunt's whereabouts are uncovered and new bonds are forged between four generations of family. A riveting read and a reminder that when we look at our losses straight in the eye that we have the possibility of being more authentically connected to each other and ourselves.
