Having a parent in prison is one of the major stressors included in the ACE study which looked at long term effects of childhood trauma on health.  U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is looking for a way to reduce this stress for the children of these people.  I’m including a link to an article about this because the divorce and separation rates are probably much higher in these populations.

A recently published book written Joyce Maynard is about two sisters who grew up in a divorced home.  It is a fictional account of two girls whose father was lead detective on the Hillside Killer who haunted women in Marin between 1979-81. I It sounds from Maynard’s interview on a PBS show that she has honestly portrayed normal kids living in a split situation.   There was open discussion about growing up with an absent father. The sisters sound like they are still close. Really great that the interviewers decided to interview them as well as Maynard.

Joyce Maynard is interviewed on the NPR show “here & Now” with Jeremy Hobson and Robin Young.


Daughters of the detective who worked on the case, Laura Gaddini Xerogeanes and Janet Gaddini Cubley.
