On April 22, 1945, two weeks before the end of World War II, Pfc. Tom T. Wilmeth was killed in the line of duty. He left behind a wife, Martha, and three young children - Karolyn, Tom and Donna. For the next fifty-six years, Karolyn struggled to fill the hole left by the loss of her father. Finally, at the age of sixty-two, she began the journey to rediscover her father, and to rediscover herself. This is a story of what it truly means to make the ultimate sacrifice in service of one's country. It is a story of the incredible and too often forgotten strength of those who were left behind. It is a story of the hole that grief can make and of how to find yourself again. But most of all, it is a story of love: the love story of two remarkable people, Tom and Martha; a story of love for this great country; and the story of the love of a daughter for her extraordinary father.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

Warum bleiben die Reichen reich und die Armen arm? Weil die Reichen ihren Kindern beibringen, wie sie mit Geld umgehen müssen, und die anderen nicht!

Kiyosaki hatte in seiner Jugend einen "Rich Dad" und einen "Poor Dad". Nachdem er die Ratschläge des Ersteren beherzigt hatte, konnte er sich mit 47 Jahren zur Ruhe setzen. Er hatte gelernt, Geld für sich arbeiten zu lassen, statt andersherum. In Rich Dad Poor Dad teilt er sein Wissen und zeigt, wie jeder erfolgreich sein kann.

The deeply shocking story of a mother's neglect and a father's betrayal Sally East's heartwrenching story starts when she was only three. It was then that her father first touched her inappropriately, as he started to groom her for the future. Sally's mother, a woman who suffered from manic depression, neglected her on her 'bad days', as Sally called them. She would turn her face to the wall and ignore her small daughter. But Sally loved her mother and waited for the 'good days' to return. When she was only six, Sally's mother died. Then when Sally most needed to feel secure, safe and loved, she paid a price that nearly destroyed her: with his wife dead, Sally's father felt free to abuse his daughter whenever he wished. The conflict of wanting to be cared for by the same person who was violating her sowed the seeds of self loathing - something that would haunt her for many years to come until the death of her father. Now in a supportive relationship and with two children of her own, Sally has at last found happiness. Bestselling author Toni Maguire not only puts a voice to Sally's heart-rending story but shows the long-term damage that child abuse does.
