Editorial Reviews


Stop waiting just buy it.
I would highlight the entire book given the chance - first-time readers, maybe just stick with post-it notes and bookmarks unless you want a book filled with neon yellow pages. It has taken me 25 long years to fully realize the horrific circumstances I was raised under, and that said circumstances were NOT normal and NOT okay. As I am writing this, I am a couch-surfing, homeless grad student. Believe me it is the FAR superior option compared to buckling under the abuse and manipulation I have endured for so long. It has been a scary emotional transition, but I can say with confidence now that I am no longer dependent on my abusive narcissistic parents. I am MUCH better off. I almost feel FREE. This book answered the questions I had and reassured me that I am not the "crazy one" as it has been put so many times by my family. It gave me the courage to finally break away. I now have a fresh start, housing lined up in a few short weeks, and the entirely unexpected but greatly appreciated support of loving friends (I never in my wildest dreams believed I would be worthy of such support - another lie ingrained into my brain for decades).
If you're struggling with inner conflict, questioning if you're literally INSANE for thinking that maybe your parents truly DON'T have your wellbeing as their priority and instead are driven by their own narcissistic ego, BUY THE BOOK. Worst case scenario? It doesn't apply, and you can explore other avenues. It changed my outlook. It helped save me from an early grave. And it was a hell of a lot cheaper than the thousands I've spent on therapy (which of course, I still recommend!).

Painful but eye-opening
I love how the author has such a detailed example and explanation of different dynamics between the child and the adult. Usually books that talk about narcissism only talk about Narcissistic parents but w/o the context of the different dynamics between a son and a daughter based on gender, because society is organized around many gender roles and stereotypes. It got me in tears and choking when I was reading some of the symptoms of CPTSD and symptoms of narcissistic abuse. This book helped me realize the strong denial and rationalization I had within myself and the deeply seater internalization of the abuse I endured. A springboard for my journey to healing. Thank you to the author."

Educational, comforting and empowering.
Learned so much and feel empowered to move forward. I'm in a marriage and could never put my finger on was wrong. Always questioned myself and self-examined what I could change and do better. Learned I am not crazy!!! Going through the steps."

From the Author

I write books for people who are dealing with narcissists in different situations. I don't write to display my knowledge or to brag about my credentials. My books are simple and do not contain bibliographic references, because victims of narcissistic abuse are not interested in academic works references. They simply recognize the truth while reading it, because they have experienced the topics of the books throughout their lives.
Moreover, I am not a writer. If you are searching for well-written novels, my books might not be for you.
Dear victim of narcissistic abuse, I care about you, and even if you cannot heal simply by reading a book, I hope that my work will make a positive difference in your life. This is my ambition, and I wish you all the best. 

Caroline Foster
