About the Book
Family systems are precarious at best, resting like a spinning plate atop a stick. All the players have to move in tandem with one another or the whole thing comes crashing down. Such is the system you will meet in Beyond The Big Top: How Crisis Changes Everything. The Randall family showcases their flare for the dramatic in this tale of thriving through crisis, even redeeming their bonds with one another by shifting into more effective roles.
Known to family friends as The Flying Randelli Traveling Circus, you will be mesmerized as they fly through the air without much grace or ease. However, they sure do make up for it with their resilient spirits and grateful hearts. From the back cover:
On December 20, 2011 the world stopped spinning for The Flying Randelli Traveling Circus. The Ringmaster was being transported to the nearest trauma center to start a series of surgeries that may or may not save his life. What transpired in the following year is a harrowing tale of crisis and change.
Our family roles shift as we age, hopefully growing into the best possible version of ourselves. How we handle changing roles in the midst of crisis can mean all the difference between survival and transformation. We cannot possibly know on a seemingly mundane Tuesday morning that life will change irrevocably with the next phone call we answer. Come along on a wild tale spun through a menagerie of circus performers and their loving, and ultimately healing audience.
