Ms. Barnhill seems to have found the most help in her faith - I envy that. After losing my youngest sibling to Juvenile Huntington's Disease as a teenager, I lost faith and haven't prayed, or believed, since. I feel that loss of faith almost every day; I know that I would have an easier time dealing with my anger issues if I felt that someone was in my corner the way that God is in the corner of those who believe. No matter how much I really want to believe again, I cannot.
This book does give me hope that, even without being devoted to a higher power, I may be able to overcome my issues; I simply hope that it's not too late for my kids. I hope that my oldest child, married with a child of her own, does not treat my precious grandchild in the same manner. I hope that my younger tween children are still young enough that I can repair the damage that I have done. My greatest fear is that it may be too late, even if I were to change overnight.
As for the reviewer who noticed the error about Ms. Barnhill's sisters - I find errors in literally EVERY book that I read. It makes me wonder who is doing the proofreading. It seems like it would be an awesome job: imagine reading for a living??? I would be thrilled!! Bottom line is that mistakes end up in print, even with the most famous authors. That being said, the reviewers that bashed the reviewer who noted the error: had I purchased this book before the error was corrected, I without doubt would have caught it as well, and assumed the same thing: that the story was embellished, or worse, fake. Anyone remember "Running With Scissors"? After much thought, I came to realize that by publicizing this book, Ms. Barnhill took a huge gamble. I can only imagine how my friends and family would react if they knew how awful I had been to my children; I am not much different from Ms. Barnhill in that respect - not necessarily worthy of a CPS investigation, but pretty darn close. I can't imagine being so brave as to publicize my rage the way that Ms. Barnhill has. Why would anyone potentially tarnish themselves for the sake of selling a book, if it risked losing everything they hold dear? That is why I chose to believe that her stories are true.
If you are struggling with rage, this book can be a huge help. If you are not religious, simply skip over those parts - you will still be left with a valuable tool. I would recommend reading this book twice. It's not too long, I read it in a day and a half. The first time through, you will be in awe: that someone actually published it, that it hits so close to home, that moms like us are not as rare as we believe. The second time, as the shock has worn off, you will be able to take more in, and hopefully be that much closer to becoming the mom you dream of being.
Very easy and relatable book. I would recommend this book to any mother...at any stage.
This book has been a wonderful resource.
Do take time to answer the questions at the end of each chapter, it is well worth it.
