Surviving and Thriving in Stepfamily Relationships: A Review
Who would have thought that this paperback on stepfamilies could cover everything you want to know (and more) about stepfamily research, clinical complexities, and therapeutic guidance for a multitude of professionals? Patricia L. Papernow had done it! It comes with plenty of case examples to enhance family relationships at all levels. I view this brilliant work and its well-organized hierarchical structure as an excellent resource; I will grab it frequently from my bookshelf for clinical, research, and personal use.

Love, Intimacy, and the African American Couple: A Review
As a female who identifies as biracial and African American, I found this book to be a critical read for any clinician working with, or desiring to, treat African American couples. The book is reader-friendly for therapists at all levels of training with its coherent language, organized chapters, and smooth flow. Unlike other texts, I found that I was able to flip to any chapter that piqued my interest and not feel lost. Each chapter begins with an overview and explains everything from pertinent African American history to the strengths and weaknesses of African American relationships without feeling redundant.
