Publisher's Summary

The daughters' stories touch upon the deepest and darkest of pains: knowing you have a mother...but you don't.

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. Listeners 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.

Helpful and insightful

This book helps betrayed daughters feel less alone. I loved the compelling personal stories that unfold through interviews and the expert commentary sprinkled throughout. The author presents many provocative healing insights. These include the power of telling the betrayal narrative as a whole and not in "orphan pieces"; the way a betrayal becomes a malignancy in a family's dynamic; and the masks that betrayal wears. The book's flow is diminished a bit when the author fills pauses in the exceptional interviews with minutiae. Examples: refilling a coffee cup, checking that recording equipment is working, relaying the state of the weather. A reader could blip right over those passages but a listener has no choice but to listen to all of them. Still, the book is helpful and engaging, truly terrific.

A Research Project in Story Form

As a psych student, I had a moment of horror when I started this audiobook as I hadn't realised that it was a research project, but this was a way of presenting research I haven't seen before and it did blow my mind a little. There are moments where we hear how cups were refilled and weather talk, but that is all part of the interview process, and as a piece of research, I'm not too upset that it's included, it can throw the rhythm of the story off a little, but I do think it adds it's own charm.

The interviews themselves were interesting, and I did appreciate the fact that Holli took part as well, and openly shared her own answers in a way that the other's didn't have to. Her name is connected and it is unlikely theirs are, but such honesty is almost expected in this genre from authors.

There are tips and suggests that can be taken on for people to use in their own life, and those drawn to this book has likely been through similar stories as the people included in the stories we hear. It is a rather informative tale to hear.
