What is included with this book?


In 1961, Michael Rockefeller, son of then-governor of New York State Nelson Rockefeller, disappeared off the remote coast of New Guinea. In the glare of international public interest, the governor, along with his daughter Mary, Michael's twin, set off on a futile search for him, only to return home empty handed and empty hearted. What followed was Mary's 27-year repression of her grief and unconscious denial of Michael's death, all of which she allowed to control her relationships and life. Sharing her grief with her family was not possible, as most of them had moved on. But Mary felt this ache, this lingering sense of loss with the one person whom she shared everything with, even as she forged ahead, marrying, having children. The need she felt for Michael never disappeared, though, leaving her without an identity of her own. Only during a spiritual healing process does Mary begin to understand all that she has loss. The journey she embarks on not only helps her at last bury Michaelthe man, not the memorybut enables her to find a new sense of beginning. In this startling, frank memoir, Mary R. Morgan charts her rebirth with remarkable honesty, finding solace today in her work with others who have lost a twin.
