book reviews


I always find it exciting when I’m blog reading and happen to come across a post about my own books! I was more than pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful review of my book Words We Carry, from author and blogger Judith Barrow.

My Review: By Judith Barrow


 Ever had that feeling of ‘not being quite good enough’,of ‘never fitting in’, of ‘always being on the outside’? Then please read this book.Words We Carry  carries (excuse the pun) words that can hit home with a sudden realisation of why we may sometimes feel that way. I’m not saying that everyone does. And if you don’t then you’re  very lucky. But, as far as I’m concerned I shall be grateful to this author forever.

  1. I absolutely loved this book! I believe any daughter who had a complicated relationship with her mother will be able to relate and work through her feelings as I did simply by reading it. When I began to understand why my mother acted as she did, I could begin to see her through God’s eyes and love her as He expected me to. I couldn’t change my mother but I could change the way I viewed her, thus releasing the pain I held for so many years. Thank you Debby for this wonderful work. Blessings,


    1. Thank you Ellie. I’m so glad that you could take so much from the book. That is key – we can’t change people. We have to find a way to look within ourselves. This is what my newest upcoming book is about – Forgiveness for a mother who never realized how much she damaged her children, yet reaching an understanding of her nature through the years and make peace within myself. ❤
