Another Place at the Table: A story of shattered childhoods redeemed by love. By Kathy Harrison. J.T. Tarcher (2003)
Book review by Cindy Warner Baker
Written by a woman who, with her husband, has fostered over a hundred children, and adopted three. Straightforward, does not glamorize either foster care or living with children with mental illness and other disabilities. As a foster/adoptive mother myself, I appreciate both the honesty and tone of deep respect for her foster children and their birth families than runs through this book. There is nothing candy-coated about this book, but there is also no sensationalizing.
