Recommended Reading

The purpose of this page is to offer resources. Some of the listed books are included as recommended reading in my memoir, Treasures of Hope, Discovering the Beautiful Truth Beneath My Hidden Past. I will be adding more titles as I find them to following lists.

So if you’re looking for a book to help you navigate the healing process, look for these at your favorite bookstores. But please beware that some I have listed are brutally honest in describing the facts. However, being vulnerable when writing is a must if we are to make a difference. Therefore, I’ve placed an asterisk beside those I found hard to read but still found a treasure trove of truth contained in the author’s words. You may want to download samples before purchasing.

There is a time for learning. You alone know when you are ready to tackle the next step. Happy reading.
