– Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart
The Eggshell Landing takes us to the warm breezes and flower-lined lanais of Hawaii, where Christina Grof was raised by her mother and stepfather. There was much joy and adventure in her childhood, but also dark secrets and enduring pain. Now her abusive stepfather is dying of malignant melanoma in Honolulu. Should she confront him about her conflicted difficult memories? Should she stay silent? Maybe just write him a letter? Or should she go back to the islands, support him and help to create a loving atmosphere for his last months? What would you do? The Eggshell Landing is a miraculous story of forgiveness and redemption. The hard-shelled man who drank and acted inappropriately toward his daughter is not someone for whom we would envision redemption or compassion. Christina Grof's experiences with her dying stepfather will surprise you and perhaps even change your attitude toward forgiveness.
