Reconciliation of the Heart: Memoir of Mary Clista Dahl: A Healing Journey to Joy, Love and Compassion is “framed around a life of joy, love and compassion.”
In the author’s words: “You may just like this book if you grew up in the 1960s, ‘70s or ‘80s, have ever been diagnosed with anxiety or a mental illness (or know someone who has), prefer to be treated with kindness, contemplated suicide, thrived as a non-traditional student, use music as an escape, play in or appreciate nature, have ever been in love, cherish being a parent, treasure friendship, kept a journal, desire to escape media drama (social and otherwise), want to tell your own story or to learn to be perpetually happy. Or just want a fun, easy, happy read!”
The Amherst, New York, writer has also published Giddy as Charged and credits Erma Bombeck for inspiring her as a mother and a writer.
“Every word she wrote delighted and eased me through mothering my own children when they came along. I like to say that her outlook helped me execute my humorous parenting skills,” she said.
