A Wedding In The Family offers a fascinating insight into the wedding experience from the mother's point of view. The author draws on her own research as a psychotherapist and psychologist to explore the complexities of family relationships that this rite of passage can expose. The book offers the reader the chance to follow several women from different cultural backgrounds through the time leading up to and beyond their child's wedding The analysis of interviews, conducted over several years and in real-life situations, form the main part of the book. A Wedding In The Family will not so much help readers to avoid wedding stress, but rather to help them make sense of it.
