Is there really such a thing as a "good divorce"? Determined to uncover the truth, Elizabeth Marquardt--herself a child of divorce--conducted, with Professor Norval Glenn, a pioneering national study of children of divorce, surveying 1,500 young adults from both divorced and intact families between 2001 and 2003. In "Between Two Worlds," she weaves the findings of that study together with powerful, unsentimental stories of the childhoods of young people from divorced families. The hard truth, she says, is that while divorce is sometimes necessary, even amicable divorces sow lasting inner conflict in the lives of children. When a family breaks in two, children who stay in touch with both parents must travel between two worlds, trying alone to reconcile their parents' often strikingly different beliefs, values, and ways of living. Authoritative, beautifully written, and alive with the voices of men and women whose lives were changed by divorce, Marquardt's book is essential reading for anyone who grew up "between two worlds." "Makes a persuasive case against the culture of casual divorce."" "--"Washington Post " "A poignant narrative of her own experience . . . Marquardt says she and other young adults who grew up in the divorce explosion of the 1970s and 1980s are still dealing with wounds that they could never talk about with their parents."--"Chicago Tribune "

Elizabeth Marquardt is an affiliate scholar at the Institute for American Values in New York City.nbsp; She is the author ofBetween Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce(2005) as well as co-author of the study "Hooking Up, Hanging Out, and Waiting for Mr. Right: College Women on Dating and Mating Today."nbsp; She lives near Chicago with her husband, Jim, a college professor, and their two young children.
