Jacqueline Sheehan and Sophie Freud

We talk with former therapist and now best-selling author Jacqueline Sheehan about her novel, LOST AND FOUND. A widowed psychologist finds the path to her own recovery from grief with the help of a black labrador retriever with a healing touch.

Also, Sigmund Freud’s granddaughter Sophie Freud tells us about about her memoir, LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF THE FREUD FAMILY. We hear about her childhood in pre-war Austria, her famous grandfather, and her dysfunctional family of origin. Now a retired social worker living in New England, Freud weaves together diaries, letters and memoir to reconstruct her flight from Nazi-occupied Austria, the agonizing wait for a visa from Nice, France, and her eventual escape from a Europe embroiled in war.
