Under One Roof

Explore the enormous opportunities and benefits of multigenerational living in this essential guide to the modern American family.

This inventive guide to multigenerational living arrives at a crucial time, as families cope with the stresses of a changing society and the tidal wave of baby boomer retirement. This book about the American family of today offers solutions, guidance, and assistance from three authors who bring their different experiences and expertise to this presentation of the challenges, realities, and benefits of multigenerational living.

Under One Roof explores the current state of the American family, including fast-rising life expectancies, the growing costs of elder care, the increasing need for childcare, the frustrating lack of affordable housing, and the new familial disconnectedness. In response, this timely book also examines

  • designing communities and homes to accommodate a fast-graying America,
  • the positives of elders providing childcare,
  • handling relationships with aging parents,
  • privacy, space, and communication issues within multigenerational living situations,
  • the evolution of the American healthcare system, hiring home caregivers, increasing the ability to comfort in hospice, and
  • dealing with the death of a loved one.

Under One Roof will bring you inspiration and exciting opportunities for invention as you and your modern American family tackle the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Charlotte's War

This epic novel follows one extraordinary American woman as she grieves and triumphs through the horrific realities of three wars that threaten the men she loves.

Charlotte Shipwright is in the fight of her life to save her firstborn son from facing a truth she knows all too well—the dreadful impact of war. As Charlotte weaves through major world events, her remarkable will and intelligence position her to offer key insights to leaders negotiating peace in Vietnam.

The formidable connections Charlotte forges over the years—including visionaries such as JFK, two U.S. Secretaries of State, and even Ho Chi Minh—culminate in a surprising and captivating convergence of personalities, power, and politics.
