Every week, I choose one book from Tim’s Discovery List to feature for all of our readers.
And this week, that book is Conflicted Hearts: A Daughter’s Quest for Solace from Emotional Guilt by Canadian author D.G. Kaye.
We’ve got a real mountain to climb in our quest to find Every Self-Published Book Worth Reading, so I hope you’ve packed a lunch.
(Also, once we’ve reached the summit, there’s no way back down, so I hope you really, really enjoy the view from the top. Join our expedition by connecting with us in The Discovery List Independent Book Society on Facebook.)
Ready for today’s 5-star book?
Here’s a taste:
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.
Lauren Scott, at her Baydreamer blog, gives it 5 stars:
D.G. Kaye writes with emotion, vulnerability, and humor. She is not afraid to admit mistakes, but she will also gladly glow in triumph – moments when I felt like clapping, thrilled with the outcome and thrilled for her!
This book definitely falls into the can’t put down category. If you enjoy reading memoirs and self-help books, I highly recommend Conflicted Hearts. You will find yourself on an emotional and inspirational wild ride that will both touch and tug at your heart. An excellent read!
Conflicted Hearts is available on Amazon.
