This insightful book of poetry, bravely composed by a mother and daughter, explorers not only the acts of violence that destroy but even more so the silence that denies. Barbara, a woman with Multiple Personality Disorder, courageously introduces the reader to her many selves and each voice has her own story, her own triumph, her own shame. Erika, Barbara�s daughter, peers into her mother, noticing her mother is not just one person, but many very different people all wrapped into one. Erika shares her own struggle with her own abuse and her struggles with having a mother for whom she feels anger and helpless for at the same time.
The poetry is heartfelt and carries the voice of its authors, whomever they may be, if it is Barbara, Erika, Babs or Bobbie. The genuine voice of each other carries through for a genuine book of poetry of a difficult subject.
