I have no doubt it will help many, many people." -TCM Reviews "Mayfield's memoir is a testament to the merit of psychological healing through the understanding and expression of feelings. Full of stark realities of abuse but also the hopefulness of healing, Mayfield's memoir provides helpful insight to those facing similar struggles." -Kirkus Reviews "A brave, unflinching, and exquisitely rendered memoir of a family caught in the tragic and relentless cycles of emotional incest. Couldn't put it down." -Darcy Scott, author of Hunter Huntress, Margel's Madness, and the Maine Island Mystery Series "Fresh, bold, and inspiring."
