Editorial Reviews

Review

"There comes a time in your life where you stand and look back, reevaluating your family of origin's lessons and value system. For the most part, you choose to continue the patterns you were taught. Other times, you realize that you must adjust and carve something completely different for your own family of creation. This book is a great resource tool in "how" to do that. Katherine Mayfield gives specific ways of coping with what you've discovered as well as provides the proverbial "big sister" helping hand to guide you through the journey.-Amazon.com
