Giveaway for a Book Club Set of a Parenting-Related Psychological Novel, Plus a Skype Call with the Author!
The book, stripped down running, written by a therapist, is a psychological novel that highlights the impact parents have, and the wild ride that can occur when adults try to outrun strong negative experiences from their childhood.
As a young adult, the heroine Hannah Friesen tries distancing herself from her past, not understanding why she is compelled to do things that hurt her. Those close to her find her amusing and endearing, yet long for her to overcome the darkness they see in her eyes.
This novel narrates how love can be enmeshed with pain in families, the great power these two have to shape our adult lives, and how we can be empowered to do something about this.
