    A great help!

    After my bible, this book is a great resource to understanding all of the emotions that come with being abandoned. For years I have felt so many of the emotions listed and thought I was just crazy. I did not have words to explain what I felt most of the time. Reading this book has helped me continue the healing process. Highly recommended!

    WOW!!!

    Ironically, I had been telling a friend recently that this one ( the breakup) was different, I was older and smarter now .. I knew what I was supposed to do but I just did not know how I would get through this one. The pain was wrenching and unquenchable. I would pray each day I would wake up and feel differently, but the morning came and the anxiety flooded in. The struggle to get through it, unbearable. I did not understand why I was unable to shake it .. I am smart, successful .. then my mother called me and told me that she had purchased a book for me to read. Great! just what I needed, another person telling me how I should feel. I obligued, how sorry I am that I had not opened the pages sooner. What an extreme relief it is to turn something so intangible into something you can touch, understand and resolve. I recommend this book to anyone big or small that has or is experiencing loss. You won't regret it.

    Be Selective

    The information on the five stages of grief was right on the money and quite helpful, but the exercises (working with your "Inner" and "Outer" children) left much to be desired.

    THE JOURNEY FROM ABANDONMENT TO HEALING...The best manual I've found

    I may have never annotated a book so much in my life. I have four and one-half pages of short statements with page number references in the front of the book... The inside is marked all up. That can only mean one thing: I found this book very relevant and plan on referencing it again...

    An Amazing Book

    I read this book after reading many many books, and this one so totally hit home I can't believe it. I had no idea there was such a thing as emotional abandonment (or that it carries over from childhood through adult life), and everything in this book pertains to me and how I've been dealing with and suffering with relationships throughout my life. I would definitely recommend this book.

    Abandoned a month ago

    This book is worth much more than the price. I was never big on self-help books but this one somehow made the cut. This book gives you direction when you think you'll never find your way, it gives strength when you've lost hope. I think because it explains technically what happens inside your body and that everyone who experiences it, experiences it because you're normal, gives you a release from all the hurt. I also love this book because it gives me a way to work out my problems instead of piling them on top of all my friends and just letting them fester until everyone wants to tell you to shut up. I will buy every book this author puts out because she really knows what she's dealing with. Thank you Susan!

    Great book for the young and the young at heart

    I'm 23 years old and just started to read this book and it's done more for me in one day than my husband has in 5 years. It's been VERY HARD but I am beggining my healing process and very optimistic for the future. I know this book can't give me the courage I need to get through this pain but it has given me insight into why we all do the things we do. When I'm done my mom wants to read it also. Great book for the young and the young at heart.

    very healing

    This book was definetely what I needed. After almost a year the wounds of being abandoned by someone I cared about are still raw. This book helped to see that my feelings are legitimate and I am trying to heal myself although it has been very difficult.

    Healing is a process of understand Youself not Others.

    I am beginning to heal myself by understanding what I have been trough out my life. I hope God will keep inspiring Susan Anderson to write more self-help books.

    An Oasis in a desert

    At a time in my life when all I could do was cry and wish the pain away, Susan helped me understand and deal with the pain of being abandoned by my boyfriend who I dearly loved. It still is a struggle, but when I get the urge to call him, knowing that all he will do is call me a stalker, I pick up the book, pull a random page and read myself back to sanity. Definitely a savior in harsh environments!

    ' THE ' book to read on abandonment

    Susan Anderson has been able to organize, describe and pinpoint in a wonderfully relatable way, the feelings and the processes one goes through in the abandonment experience. She has used her first-hand experience as well as her knowledge on the subject, in a way so that we all can benefit from it. Thank you Dr. Anderson, for your sharing and teachings.

    Thank Goodness

    I found this book after having been recently abandoned. I was lost, I was in shock, I was in physical pain. Susan Anderson helped me to understand not only the psychological stages of abandonment, but also the physical reactions to the shock. So far, I have not found another book like it. After having talked to many friends, I'm starting to realize that there are a lot of people out there who have been abandoned and there is definitely an untapped market for this situation. People who have been abandoned are unique and their pain is even worse than loss by death. Susan helped me to understand this unique pain and recognize the experiences in my life which might have lead to it.

    Journey from Abandonment to Healing

    This book was absolutely fantastic. I was in a downward spiral- battling anxiety disorder as well as abandonement issues. Within reading the first 3 chapters, I was able to straighten out my path and start on the road to healing. I would highly recommend this to anyone who had been diagnosed with abandonment issues and don't know where else to turn!
