"Mirrored Reflections: A Memoir, is the phenomenal chronicle of the life of Kitty La Perriere. In the course of her long life La Perriere has gone from being child of pre-holocaust Czechoslovakia, to stateless refugee, to nationally and internationally known professional woman. She is also the sole family therapist ever to have provided us with a memoir of her life journey. Her writing is frank and touching in detailing the ups and downs of a rich and difficult life . . . in many languages, in many cultures, and in many contexts. Her . . . chronicle extends from childhood in Moravia during the build up to the horrors of World War II, to becoming one of the central, if unappreciated figures of the American Family Therapy movement of the 1960s and 1970s. Her rich narrative conveys intimate thoughts and experiences . . . as well as the difficult power-relationships of her professional life in an era that was harsh and not generous to women. . . . This memoir is an extraordinary gift from a brilliant, creative and thoughtful writer who has striven . . . to adapt, to learn from all her experiences, and to prevail."
