'Can't Explain' is an invaluable resource for all parents going through difficult times associated with family breakdown. It tells the story of a father's tortuous fight to win the right to retain contact with his only child after his marriage break-up. Although the characters in the book are fictional their story is based on real-life situations. It tells of the strange and desperately emotional events that unfolded over a number of years. It wasn't until it was too late for this father that he realised and fully understood he had been a victim of Parental Alienation. The story starts at the beginning of his relationship with his first wife. A couple of years into marriage the relationship starts to flounder and as the story unfolds the reader sees the darker side of the human psyche and how family relationships can be torn apart by separation and divorce. Sinister twists follow involving blackmail and false allegations of child abuse, and the systematic destruction of the loving parent-child relationship the father had shared with his daughter, as the child is taught to hate the once cherished parent. Throughout his ordeal the father keeps a journal as an outlet for his pent-up emotions, which ultimately turns out to be a true blessing. The story concludes with how he and others around him learn to cope with all the hurtful and terrifying consequences of Parental Alienation. He reflects on the perceived inadequacy of family law and the family court, whilst offering practical advice and suggestions to others who could easily find themselves in similar circumstances. As well as a fascinating, albeit sometimes harrowing, read this book can be viewed as a useful reference for anyone who suspects 'Parental Alienation' or 'Parental Alienation Syndrome' is affecting their lives in any way.
