A pleasant surprise to find this review of my book Conflicted Hearts on Jacqui Murray’s page Wordreams . Jacqui reviewed 3 books this week and I was thrilled to find one of them was mine. Here is her review:
This week, I have three Indie books (in Carrie Rubin’s case, she has a micro-publisher) that stand out in that crowded field:
- Conflicted Hearts is the story of a damaged child who struggles as an adult to make sense of a childhood where she always seemed to be the problem
- Brothers in Arms is a futuristic science fiction story about a world where men and women are brothers in arms, both struggling for the same goals, be it personal or national.
- Eating Bull is a medical thriller about one obese teen’s struggle to fight the food industry, even when he becomes the target of a madman
Conflicted Hearts: A Daughter’s Quest for Solace from Emotional Guilt
by D.G. Kaye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The preview for the book reads: A lifetime of guilt — What does it take to finally break free?And that’s exactly what this story is. A young woman’s guilt over parents who couldn’t love her, a childhood that included none of the nurturing events so critical to children, and mistakes made by the child–because she was a child–which she believed caused her parents to be distant and uncaring. Add to this horrible mix heartbreak, abuse, an incurable immune-deficiency disease, and almost losing the love of her life.– thank God children are resilient. You will want to hug this child and tell her it’s just not her fault.
Told with DG Kaye’s typical honesty and openness, and a writing style that draws readers right into the emotion. Plan to give this book to anyone suffering from childhood issues that simply aren’t their fault and they can’t fix. Continue Reading
