Chronic, seemingly intractable estrangement blights many families in our stressed and fragmented culture. In this thoughtful, compassionate book Karl Pillemer shows that it need not be permanent and his perceptive, gentle guidance lights the way to reconciliation.

Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D. author of The Normal Bar: The Surprising Secrets of Happy Couples

Estrangement is the mysterious, intractable and secret pain affecting millions of families (including my own). With Fault Lines, Karl Pillemer courageously rappels into the deep social crevice created by these devastating rifts. Using original research and empathic storytelling, Pillemer doesn't just explore this territory, but he shows us a way out. This is an extremely important and insightful guide for anyone wrestling with the heartbreak of estrangement.
--Amy Dickinson, "Ask Amy" advice columnist

This is one of the most original contributions to relationship research and literature I have seen in a long time. It is filled with real examples and practical wisdom, but perhaps most of all, every page is filled with hope.
--Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of The Rhythm of Life A fascinating examination of family estrangement, which is far more common that you might think.
-Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
