Description

An intense emotional journey that is well worth the effort deciding when, whether and how to approach the dilemma of forgiveness. This book is remarkable in that it does not impart knowledge, but rather helps the reader tap into his/her own wisdom and integrity.


COMMENT:

As a victim of homicide, I appreciate the author’s in depth analysis of forgiveness. So often forgiveness is used as a should to silence victims, Mona’s treatment of forgiveness, seeing it as a process, is most helpful and refreshing.
-Wilma Derksen, author of Have you Seen Candace? And editor of Pathways

For those excruciating times when we have been badly wronged, Mona Affinito is a wise and trusted companion. She makes us consider the relief and release that can accompany our acts of forgiveness…amazingly practical and insightful guidance.
-James E. Dittes, Professor of Postoral Theology and Psychology, Yale University and author of twelve books, including Driven by Hope: Men and Meaning

An exceptional job of speaking to the deep transformative power of genuine forgiveness…the ultimate spiritual gift one gives to oneself.
-Mark Umbright, Ph.D, Director, Centre for Restorative justice and Mediation, University of Minnesota, author of Victim Meets Offender: The Impact of Restorative Justice and Mediation and Mediating Interpersonal Conflicts: A Pathway to Peace.
