After reading the book description for Forgiving our Fathers and Mothers by Leslie Leyland Field, I was hoping I would be enlightened or mentally stimulated. Unfortunately that was not the case.
As an avid book reader I do not believe in starting a book and not completing it. However; I was unable to read this book in it’s entirety. After reading the first couple of pages I knew something was missing. I could not pin point what it was, so I continued to read with hopes that the book would pick up or tell me something I did not already know.
The stories in the book where descent examples of what Fields had experienced herself. I am dismissing her experiences but, did not agree with her thoughts and theories. I did not find that everything she stated was Word based.
It is unfortunate that many parents and children have to mend their relationships. I thought this book would offer some answers or solutions for the readers but, I found that I was not receiving a message that was moving or something I did not already know. I do not consider myself to be a know it all but, I do know that while reading this book I was not receiving a powerful message. I took very little from what I read.
After struggling through the first couple of chapters and reminding myself that I always finish reading a book, I could not do it.
Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers was not the book for me but, may be for someone else.
Disclosure:Product/compensation was received in exchange for review.
