Another good one

Just like her prior book Adult Children of Alcoholics, this is an insightful book, although, once again, it lacks solutions to the problems.

ACOA Relationship Savior

As an ACOA whose had many failed relationships I found this book very insightful and helpful. This book explained complex feelings in a simple easy to understand format. This book is great for ACOA as well as their partners.

This book is very helpful

I can relate to every word
The struggle and the emotions that I have are normal for my experience with my childhood. I can look to make the changes to my life now.

A quick overview

This book is like a quick guide for someone who has found them selves in a relationship with an ACOA. Its a good book for people to pick up if you want to understand how an ACOA functions in, not just intimate relationships, but friendships as well.

Read multiple times and taken in slow portions

So helpful for growth and looking at challenges in so many ways. I have listened to many many times and take things in each time.
