Covington, coauthor of Leaving the Enchanted Forest: The Path from Relationship to Intimacy (HarperCollins, 1988), offers this guide for women recovering from abuse, addiction, or dysfunctional relationships. She uses case histories mixed with practical suggestions on how to change past behavior and work toward healing. Particularly helpful are her appendixes, which discuss the sexual response cycle and women and AIDS. Bibliographies and resources are also included. Although titles on recovery proliferate, this book fills an important niche.-- Marguerite Mroz, Baltimore Cty. P.L.
