To any outsider, Christal appeared to be doing well: she earned a BA and a master's, got married, and traveled to India. But despite all these accomplishments, Christal still hadn't faced her biggest challenge - her relationship with her father. In 2009, something changed. Christal decided it was time to begin the healing process, and she extended an olive branch. She came up with what she called "The Thirty Day Project," a month's worth of conversations during which she would finally ask her father difficult questions about Vietnam. Thirty Days with My Father is a gritty yet heartwarming story of those thirty days of a daughter and father reconnecting in a way that will inspire us all to seek the truth, even from life's most difficult relationships. This beautifully realized memoir shares how one woman and her father discovered profound lessons about their own strength and will to survive, shedding an inspiring light on generational PTSD.

For those with a family member with ptsd
The beginning of the book is a bit hard to get through as it is real and sad. But how wonderful to see the healing that was possible for them, as well as to appreciate our Vietnam Vets more. I am a Trauma Recovery Specialist, and while I would say if it triggers you to read this, go very slowly and get support, it can also be a very hopeful book.
