What People are Saying About This
"This highly topical book is one of the first studies of grandparenting in the UK. It provides a unique, detailed and often moving view of the roles that grandparents play in divorced families, and how their children and grandchildren respond to them. Its findings will be influential in shaping family policy, law, research and practice." Geoff Dench, Institute of Community Studies, London, UK.
