Conflicted Hearts

on January 12, 2018
D.G. Kaye’s memoir is about her life as a little girl growing up without any love from her mother and the emotional pain that is still in the author’s heart and soul. The author, as a little girl, was practically a servant, doing the parenting of the other children. I was reminded as I read her story of another story, Cinderella, because that is exactly what this little girl endured. The author’s mother was a narcissus, self-serving, unstable, and dysfunctional individual with a gambling habit. It is also a story about a blended family with different religious beliefs and strongly held convictions from an older immigrant generation that caused an added level of distress, worry and fearfulness for her and her siblings.

As the author’s life story unfolds, one can see that not having a mother’s love can create a need to be loved at any cost. And, this is what happened to the author. She found herself in relationships that were unhealthy. Over the course of many years, the author realized she needed to value herself and not be a pawn in someone else’s life to be belittled, demeaned, and unloved. The author, of this heartfelt memoir, exposes what it is like to grow up in a very dysfunctional home life. D.G. Kaye writes with authenticity, insight, and emotional pain, that touched me deeply.
