Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Because Marlena Fiol, in her struggle for freedom, was able to make peace with her father and her faith, she reveals a path toward an accomplished and bitterfree life. Hers is an epic journey of reconciliation.” Phil Cousineau, author of The Art of Pilgrimage
“A courageous story of both bringing to light family/community secrets and forgiving those who have been emotionally unavailable to us, failed to protect us, or even abused us. Marlena shows us that the path to surviving these kinds of abuses and neglect, while not linear, is achievable.” Dawn Tankersley, EdD, early childhood specialist
“I found Marlena’s story riveting and spellbinding…A true story of healing, deep reflection, raw emotion and triumph. Marlena has been able to see through her own pain in order to encourage and help bring healing to others. Highly recommended.” Misty Griffin, author of Tears of the Silenced
“This book could have been written only by someone possessed of uncommon love, compassion, and empathy.” Larry Dossey, MD, New York Times bestselling author
