Book Review: Conflicted Hearts – A Daughter’s Quest for Solace from Emotional Guilt by D.G. Kaye

MEMOIR/NONFICTION A Lifetime of guilt — What does it take to finally break free? Somehow I believed it was my obligation to try to do the right thing by her because she had given birth to me. Burdened with constant worry for her father and the guilt caused by her mother’s narcissism, D.G. Kaye had a short childhood. When she moved away from home at age eighteen, she began to grow into herself, overcoming her lack of guidance and her insecurities. Her life experiences became her teachers, and she learned from the mistakes and choices she made along the way, plagued by the guilt she carried for her mother. Conflicted Hearts is a heartfelt journey of self-discovery and acceptance, an exploration of the quest for solace from emotional guilt.

    I really enjoyed this book, Lynette. I was amazed at all of the author’s challenges growing up without any mothering, and her innate ability to keep moving forward in spite of them. She’s an example of a true survivor.

    1. Yes she is! When I read an excerpt of Debbie’s book more than a year ago, I totally related to her story and her struggle. Awesome story of resilience.

    Hi Lynette, I will be buying a copy, it sounds a great book

    1. Awesome! Debbie’s story is similar to ours. When you get a chance to read it, let me know what you think.

  6. The title alone intrigued me and then I read the review – it does sound like a fascinating book and I’ll need to add it to my list. Thanks for sharing with us, Lynette!

    1. You are very welcome Dyane. It intrigued me too the first time I read an excerpt of Conflicted Hearts. When you get a chance to read it, let me know what you think.

      1. I will definitely let you know. I just reactivated my Goodreads account and must put it on ther – I never used it when I started it up, and I’m curious to see what it’s like. I’ll check to see if you’re on there. 🙂

      2. p.s. I searched for you @ Goodreads and didn’t spot your profile, although there were 5 other Lynettes. 🙂

      3. No. I don’t have a Goodreads account.–it’s still on my To Do List.

      4. I’m not sure if it’s going to be for me…but I’m curious!
