More About This Book

Overview

This is a book about relationships. It's the tale of one woman's slow awakening to what she's done to herself in allowing her relationship with her overly possessive mother to dictate the course of her life. It's about the mother whose manipulation pushed her daughter into marriage with a man she did not love, the husband who is a victim of that union, the precious children who suffer but eventually thrive, and the handsome southerner who sets the change in motion.

Anyone who has ever resented a parent's manipulation or, even once, thought about leaving a marriage will find Sheila's dilemma a compelling one. Harried career women. sandwich generation moms, and anyone wondering how they strayed so far from their real selves will identify with Sheila's long-repressed spirit as it embarks on the slow dance of connecting with the person she once was.

    Unraveling the puppet strings of a domineering mother

    Melissa McDaniel masterfully unfolds the inevitable domino effect of a domineering mother. Sheila Branford, the daughter, embarks on a carefully planned journey to extricate herself from a husband she never loved and the whims of her manipulative mother. Although Sheila finds the true love she has always yearned for, her journey is frought with obstacles. Between a rock and a hard place, Sheila leaves her two young children with their father. But, because of her courage and unflappable determination, her sweet children are not lost to her. In the end, Sheila gets her man and simultaneously retains the love of her children. Sheila chose to shed the cloak of the 'Stepford Wife!' Would any of us in the same predicament have the same steely resolve to save themselves? Bravo, Sheila!
