instinct and held her during tantrums,although she was
told to let the chid work it out.
Education was stressed,and the importance of a… Read more

Neither daughter has been close to their beautiful
mother,or to each other over the years.
A family secret-created so the children will not know

Once you begin reading you cannot put this book down,
until you see how the situation is resolved.
At times,your mind plays tricks on you and… Read more
