Until reading this book I was going through sheer hell. I could not understand why my mother behaves the way she does. Since reading this book, so many things about my childhood, teenage and adult years now make so much more sense. I no longer blame myself for the failures I was accused of and am in a much better position to live my life in the way I want to, no longer trying to please a woman who will never, ever be pleased.
For me, this book opened the door of my prison cell.
