Seeking Healing and Peace from Childhood Maternal Abuse: A Book Review of Forgiving Mother

"In closing, I firmly believe this book will make a tremendous addition to my clinical shelf. The book is written in a manner meant to empower the reader - reminding the reader that childhood experiences may shape and mold all of us, but they don't define the person we can become. Through prayer, a relationship and reliance on the love and comfort of the Blessed Mother, and wise counsel of either a professional mental health worker or spiritual director, healing and peace can be found as an adult."
