"A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them." Victor Hugo's soothing words notwithstanding, millions of daughters grow into adulthood deprived of a sense of a mother's love. As this new book by therapist author Susan Forward (Toxic Parents; Emotional Blackmail) shows, unloving mothers don't leave simply an absence in an offspring's life; they leave a deep imprint of pain and damaged emotions. Forward's Mothers Who Can't Love offers a taxonomy of dysfunctional mothers and then explores techniques to heal their devastating effects on their daughters. A compassionate look at an unfortunately pervasive problem.
