Review

"D.G. Kaye writes with an emotional, powerful voice. Her inspirational stories captivate with a unique blend of style and substance."--J. Thorn, Author of The Portal Arcane series

About the Author

D.G. Kaye was born and resides in Toronto, Canada. She loves to read, shop, travel, and play poker when she gets the chance. Kaye has been writing about her thoughts on life since she was a young girl, as pen and paper became her emotional outlet. Through the years of compiling her thoughts and memories in a journal, she wrote this book as a cathartic release. Kaye wanted to share her story in recognition of the many people who struggle with their past, perhaps shedding light on how powerfully a mother can impact a child throughout her life. Kaye is also the author of Meno-What? A Memoir-a humorous recounting of menopause, released in June of 2014, and Words We Carry-essays on life and women's self-esteem.

Yesterday I happened to come across this book and I am so glad that I did. It made me laugh, it made me sad, it made me angry but most of all, it made me cheer for D.G. Kaye! She writes with candor and insight, passion and heart. It is an easy comfortable read, much like having a conversation and I couldnt put the book down until the conversation was over. You can feel the little girl's worry and confusion, the teenager's guilt and angst, the sadness and the searching of the young woman and finally the strength of the adult. Ms. Kaye writes about the effects her mother's actions has had on her entire life and the decisions she has made but she is never mean spirited about it and it makes you love her more.

It is a book that makes you think, reflect, understand and most of all it is a book that shows you that with the right attitude and beliefs, you can forgive and move forward. I loved it!

How can you sum up a life...your own or someone else's? It's a daunting task. Even a quiet, reserved life is hard to put into words. But what if all you have ever known is adversity, conflict, and neglect from your first remembered, conscious thought. How can beauty and serenity survive in a toxic wasteland? Yet, a sensitive, caring individual did just that--D.G. Kaye--and she shares her amazing true life story with us mere mortals. A guilt ridden young girl, who carries her guilt through life, but haven't many of us been there? Even knowing the guilt is not justified doesn't make the pain go away. Throw in heartbreak, abuse, an incurable immune-deficiency disease, and almost losing the love of her life...how do you cope? How do you become spiritual, giving, loving, and caring? Read "Conflicted Hearts" by D.G. Kaye, and you will know a true angel walks among us.

"Imagine feeling frustrated and powerless in a situation you're desperate to resolve. When you're a child, that angst multiplies immensely because you are only that--a child. You have no power to speak out about what you're feeling, and neither are you permitted to ask questions that might soothe your inner turmoil, because the cause of your dilemmas are adult matters that apparently shouldn't concern you." ~ D.G. Kaye, Conflicted Hearts

My Thoughts:

At the beginning of Chapter 8 of Conflicted Hearts , the same chapter from which the above quote is taken, D.G. Kaye writes the following:

"We are the products of our parents. How can they teach us what they didn't know?"

Likely, these words resonate with more than one reader with parents from the same generation as Kaye's.

The author's fluid writing style and storyteller's voice gives the reader a sense of sitting down over a steaming cup of coffee or tea with a friend. The friend begins to tell you what life was like for her as a child. You sit in disbelief, wondering how this positive, strong, loving woman lived through the parenting received at the mind and hands of her mother.

Yet, our author and friend lives with a guilt burdening her for far too long. This is the skin she wants to shed--the skin of her guilt feelings. It appears to this reader nothing has been D.G. Kaye's fault with respect to her mother and her mother's behavior. The guilt is just another layer applied like frosting on a cake. Only this isn't frosting. It isn't sweet, and it leaves an acid taste in your mouth.

D.G. Kaye is not ashamed nor abashed about telling her story and sharing it with those willing to read.

The preview for the book reads: A lifetime of guilt -- What does it take to finally break free? And that's exactly what this book is. This young woman's guilt over parents who couldn't love her, a childhood that included none of the nurturing events so critical to children, and mistakes she made because she was a child--all this she believed caused her parents to be so distant and uncaring. Add to this heartbreak, abuse, an incurable immune-deficiency disease, and almost losing the love of her life.-- thank God children are resilient. You will want to hug this child and tell her it's just not her fault.

Told with DG Kaye's honesty and openness, and a writing style that draws readers right into the emotion, plan to give this book to anyone suffering from childhood issues that simply aren't their fault and they can't fix.

If there is a conflicted heart within you, this would be the book to read to help you move forward with your life. No, it will not make you all better and in fact, it may stir up emotions that you have buried in the name of 'getting by' however, it could very well help you make some very important decisions to truly heal. With honesty, and fairness to all, D. G. Kaye shares a story most of us would never imagine the likes of and the result is the reader bearing witness to strength and courage. Well done!

We all have something that either keeps us going or holds us back. This is a true story of how to preserve when the odds are against you. It's about having an open a true heart. About treating others the way we ourselves want to be treated. Life isn't easy. I am so glad I have a person like D.G. in my life. She is always positive. She always has a kind word to lift you up. The love in her heart shines through even when she's telling her own personal life story. Staying true to your own heart is the message I got from this book. Never let some else's venom change who you are. Even when that venom is coming from your own flesh and blood. This story will make you laugh, cry, and hopefully make you see that in the end we all have choices to make in order to live the best lives we can. I love you D.G. Kate!
