Descrizione prodotto


Books about abused and emotionally disturbed children are usually clinical and professional in nature; they seldom engage a reader’s curiosity, heart and funny bone all at the same time. Nutmeg, the story of one such child and the help and solace offered her through a network of caring people, is not so much a clinical study as a beautifully told story of one bright, angry and lovable young child and her journey to well-being.
In a healing setting where John Bowlby’s attachment theory abounds, young Nutmeg learns to trust, attach to those she learns to love and to empathize with others. Her disturbed behaviors slowly and surely diminish and her tremendous love of life thrills the reader as her voyage to adoption into a “forever family” becomes a reality.
This book is filled with accessible information about the lives of children locked in the world of foster care, facing the challenges of our legal system and dealing with memories and people from a troubled and frightening past.

A fascinating story

by Mary Coleman MD

Nutmeg is a compelling story that keeps the reader very interested and turning the pages. It is a clearly written and moving story of the journey of a young girl born to a disoriented schizophrenic mother and removed from her care at 3 months of age after the mother mutilated the child's finger. The abuse continued and continued in a series of foster homes until the child finally is placed with a sophisticated agency and eventually adopted by an extraordinarily supportive family. This book contains remarkable insight about Nutmeg's process of thinking and reacting as she goes through these experiences; it also discusses the positive pleasures and negative burdens of the staff inside an adoption agency and the limitations of their work. This book illuminates the reader about a number of contemporary issues -- how does a child come to terms with abandonment by her parent, can a white family successfully adopt a biracial child, what are the identity problems of any adopted child both when younger and later during adolescence and adulthood, and most importantly, can such a repeated abusive beginning in the early years ever be satisfactorily overcome and by what methods?

This book is a tribute to a truly remarkable person, someone who named herself "nutmeg."

As a psychotherapist, I really appreciated both Nutmeg's plight and the efforts to help her. The story is a great read and shows what a great connection and hard work can do. Karen R. Koenig, LCSW, M.Ed.

This novel is a fictionalized account of an actual seven-year old girl whose unfortunate experiences in foster homes left her defiant, belligerent, and trusting no one. The author takes us through her ups and downs, her advances and setbacks, at Children's Garden. The patience of the staff in dealing with her often maddening behavior takes a prominent place in the story as do the procedures used to modify and re-shape her behavior. This is a touching story of caring people and an unusual little girl whose almost intractable behavior gives way gradually to kind and skillful treatment. She develops trust and attachment and learns to have healthy feelings toward both other children and adults. The reader will find his or her feelings pulled into and along with the developments in the story to the final accomplishment--acceptance into a family she can call her own. It is a fulfilling story that any reader will find gratifying.

This novel elucidates what a difficult struggle it is for abused or abandoned children who are wards of the state to gain successful placements in foster homes or, even better, to be adopted by a loving family. The children's future is at stake, based on efforts by both the children and adults which frequently involves setbacks and heartbreaks. This is a psychologically sophisticated tale that vividly illustrates the difficulties faced by all parties concerned. The children's search for secure attachment and cohesive identity, the care-givers hopes and frustrations, and the legal authorities mix of human compassion with blindness and bias, are all portrayed in a convincing fashion. It is therefore easy for readers to empathize with the protagonists whether children or adults. All this turn this novel into a heart-touching story and an artistic success.
