When you think about your mother:
- Do you blame her for neglecting you as a child?
- Do you hold her responsible for your low self-esteem?
- Do you feel diminished after spending time with her?
- Do you do things out of obligation; to avoid being called the bad daughter/son?
- Are you afraid to admit, even to yourself, that you don’t like her?
- Do you feel you deserve an apology you know will never come?
- Do you cringe when people say you look alike?
- Do you wish you had a better or different mother?
If, when you think about your mother, you want to be free of the guilt, shame, and resentment that takes away your peace and joy, this book is for you.
When faced with the decision to move close to her elderly, ailing mother, Eve Rosenberg was terrified, conflicted, and angry. She blamed her mother for everything that was wrong in her life believing, “If I only had a different mother, what I could have become. . . ”
Desperate and determined to create a happy life for herself while dealing with her mother’s challenges, Eve carved a path for herself that led to not only forgiving her mother but to bonding with her and falling in love with her shortly before her mother died.
Grateful for this experience, Eve attributes the joy and peace she now feels, to her decision to surrender to what she’d resisted for years: facing the strong dislike she had for her mother and choosing to change and forgive.
Eve could finally see her mother for who she truly was—a fragile woman with a traumatic past—which made mothering her children impossible. With her heart now open, Eve could release the guilt and shame she carried, believing she was a bad daughter who wasn’t worthy of love and good fortune in life.

- Let go of the resentment you hold toward your mother that blocks your joy.
