"This is a miracle book, full of love and wisdom and healing."
—Rayne Wolfe, author of The Toxic Mom Toolkit
"The best guide to healing yourself with love, compassion and respect."
"I've started working with Amy's book and I have already experienced remarkable results...as if parts of me were waiting to be contacted again and be held lovingly. The book is much more accessible than many self-help books for people who grew up around neglect, abuse, addiction, etc. The tone is encouraging, not preachy. It's more like having a sympathetic friend who has been there, and found ways to deal with things no one else understands."
"As a stoic Yankee, the "feelings and feeling them" chapter required me to grit my teeth and finally learn how to open my heart to a range of feelings that I am accustomed to tamping down."
"The author does a wonderful job of providing a positive, freestyle workbook as a framework for recognizing and working through childhood trauma and abuse. If you find writing helpful to explore your state of mind but dislike prompts and lines on a blank page you will find this book especially helpful."
"I would dare say even my therapist would do well to offer something constructive like this to go a step beyond talk therapy into moving forward."
