The Complicated Heart by Sarah Mae–Book Review

“It’s complicated.”  How often have you said this, or heard it said about a relationship?  Sarah Mae leads us through the story of her complicated relationship with an alcoholic mother.  Sarah (with God’s help) learns to set boundaries, grieve, lower her expectations and eventually understand and forgive the mother who often hurt her.  In the end, she understands that her mother was also a child who was broken by bad relationships with others in her life.  Interspersed with Sarah’s perspective are letters and journal entries written by her mom.

A useful addendum includes a number of resources with those dealing with similar issues:

  • What Do I Do Now?
  • For When You Think It’s All Impossible
  • Six Ways to Forgive
  • How To Work through Your Core Lies

This book will be helpful to anyone struggling with issues of alcoholism, forgiveness, abortion and dysfunctional family relationships.

VERDICT:  5 stars.  This book was not only an interesting read, it offers concrete suggestions and help for others in difficult relationships
