Editorial Reviews


“5-Stars. Letting Go Into Perfect Love is one woman's emotive account of domestic violence, but it's also so much more than that. It's the story of a young mother learning to respect and value herself, a student of religion finding the simple beauty in life around her, a writer searching for the proper words with which to tell her tale. Gwen needed to tell her story—and you need to read it.”
—Red City Review

“The mystical magnitude of her luminous love embraces the reader. This is a redemptive memoir with healing guidelines for those confined in or exposed to abusive relationships, for any who have endured family outrages, and for those wishing to accompany the writer on a journey towards self-realization.”
—San Francisco Book Review

“Memoir at its best with practical advice to battered women . . . [O]ffers a needed perspective for the many desperate women who are or who know someone in an abusive relationship. It also gives Plano a chance to air her grievances. Plano's story is not vindictive, yet it easily could have been. That feature alone suggests some sort of spiritual power behind the book. Call it perfect love or what you will.”
—National Catholic Reporter

Letting Go into Perfect Love is an unflinchingly honest account of one woman's journey to spiritual and emotional redemption. In writing about her own lessons in learning the redemptive power of love through suffering, spiritual practice, and grace, Gwen Plano allows her readers to reconnect with the painful moments in their own lives and to use those moments to walk a path toward healing and life fulfillment. Plano teaches us that every experience is a lesson; every person, a teacher, that our goal here is not to accept suffering, but to transcend it.”
—Brenda Borron, Professor of English, Irvine Valley College

Letting Go Into Perfect Love is an inspirational story of the quest for personal wholeness and love. Gwen was reminded by her spiritual counselor that “we are born to become love.” Such a message is difficult to understand when we are captive to expectations, habits, and behaviors that undermine our ability to authentically love ourselves. In Gwen’s case, the reminder motivated her to search for self-understanding and wholeness, which are the prerequisites of self-love. It is said that the difference between “try” and “triumph” is a lot of “umph.”Through Gwen’s many trials and challenges, she applied a lot of “umph” and charted a heroic path. When a person embarks on the journey of awakening, they begin to create a new future, and the quality of that future is the result of personal intention not driven by past experiences and fate. There is much to be learned from this beautifully written story.”
—Stanley Stefancic, Retired Teacher and Director, Hoffman Institute

From the Author

When I beganwriting my book, Letting Go into Perfect Love: Discovering the Extraordinary After Abuse, I thought I would simply tell mystory. But as the words found paper, I realized that we all traverse a familiarterrain of joys and sorrows. Perhaps we have passed each other on our journeys.Figuratively or literally, we travel long distances in search of happiness,meaning, or love. We climb the highest mountains, we trek across the deserts,and we explore the ocean's depths. We are restless until we find ourheart's desire.

My book is about howwe craft our way through triumphs and tragedies, achievements and mistakes.Over the years, I have learned that we are never alone. Sometimes kind strangersor healers or friends show us the way, and sometimes we are visited by angels.
