9781938314025: Don't Call Me Mother: A Daughter's Journey from Abandonment to Forgiveness

At the age of four, a little girl stands on a cold, windy railroad platform in Wichita, Kansas to watch the train take her mother away. For the rest of her life, her mother will be only an occasional and troubled visitor. Linda Joy Myers' compassionate, gripping, and soul-searching memoir tells the story of three generations of daughters who long for their absent mothers, yet unwittingly recreate a pattern that she was determined to break.

Accompany Linda as she uncovers family secrets, finds solace in music, and begins her healing journey. Learn how she transcends the prison of childhood to discover light in the darkness of strife, abuse, and undiagnosed mental illness. Don't Call Me Mother was originally published in 2005. This revised edition includes a new introduction and afterword, with new insights about memoir writing. It's an inspiring chronicle of perseverance, healing, and the transformative power of forgiveness.

Book Description:

This compassionate and gripping memoir tells the story of three generations of daughters who, though determined to be different from their absent mothers, ultimately follow in their footsteps. Myers’s new afterword continues the saga, allowing her to confront her family legacy and come full circle with her daughter and grandchildren.

From the Author:

People ask me why I wrote about the generations of mothers who abandoned their daughters, and how it was that I could find forgiveness for my mother and grandmother. My reason to write the book at first was for my own healing. The memories and stories were jumbled up in my mind, and there were several traumatic moments that kept reappearing. I learned about the power of writing the truth to heal, and even wrote a book about that: The Power of Memoir, and then I realized that because I couldn't find any books to help me understand and heal from my mother wounds, no books about this kind of abandonment, I needed to write a book myself.

It took me many years to write the first edition of the book--I was living through some of the issues raised in the book, but after my mother died, I realized that I could write a more compassionate story than I would have before. Something very significant happened when she died that altered me and how I told my story.

In this new edition, I wanted to share what happened "After the Memoir"--stories that link into how I kept searching for resolution and forgiveness, and how writing the memoir had helped me to see things more clearly. I visit families to explore more layers of truth, and I find truths all right--some are harder than others to bear, but in the end, there is even more resolution. Forgiveness is hard work, but when we manage it, we are free to simply Be.
