Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[After reading In Sheep's Clothing] I am beginning to reclaim my life, find my self-respect and confidence." ---Marc, Virginia
online purchaser Erin
”Thank you for your book, In Sheep’s Clothing. My husband and I saw several counselors to help us through the problems we were having with my mother-in-law who is immature and manipulative. The counselors spent most of their time trying to get me [to accept her], instead of teaching me [as only your book did] ways to cope with her manipulation.”

a reader in New England Carnelian
“I've not read a more eye opening book. It hits the problem nail right on the head. If you suspect someone is manipulating you, please read this most valuable book. It will truly pull the wool off of your eyes.”
