Daughters Betrayed By Their Mothers: Moving From Brokenness To Wholeness is an intimate exploration into the lives of daughters who were wounded by their mothers and who chose wellness over victimhood. Each daughter's unique story of recovery is a testament to the power of choice, perseverance and resilience. Readers are invited to journey alongside the daughters, grabbing hold of healing lifelines and moving from broken places to whole spaces within.

  • Do you feel your mother did not "show up" for you in the ways you needed?
  • Because of your mother's role in your life, do you feel like you were "not enough?"
  • Do you wonder if it is possible to heal from the brokenness that comes from being wounded by your mother?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, the "Daughters" warmly welcome you.
