Publisher's Summary

Essence® best-selling author Gwynne Forster crafts this moving look at a woman’s troubled relationship with her mother. Kendra’s mom Ginny has let her down her whole life. Yet even now, at 33 years old, Kendra can’t say no when her mother asks for help. So, determined to finally distance herself from Ginny’s lies, Kendra starts seeing psychologist Sam Hughes. Through Sam, Kendra finds stability, independence, and even a chance at love. But when her mother returns more desperate than ever, Kendra’s newfound strength is put to the ultimate test.

What disappointed you about Breaking the Ties That Bind?

The book was a very slow read and it didn't really have a good ending. Also the ending did not make me believe that there would be a sequeal. What really happened with the Mother?

What do you think your next listen will be?
