Both parents were incapable of being loving parents due to a lack of good parenting skills from their own parents. This book tells how she felt about and dealt with it. Although she grew up in a dysfunctional home, she was able to break the cycle. Sadly, she had to go through many trials and tribulations, but today she is at peace with everything.
