The Healing Wound

Born into a complex and abusive life, Cristina is determined to create something better for herself - but how? The child of a young, unmarried, interracial couple, she is given up for adoption and thrust into a new family with more complicated challenges and generations of abuse and addiction. 

The Healing Wound follows Cristina's journey from dramatic birth through a difficult childhood and ultimate escape as a teenager, where she is finally reunited with her birth mother. She quickly discovers the happy refuge she believed she found was nothing of the sort as she becomes the target of a mother with undiagnosed mental illness. Again, she must fight for her escape. 

Cristina continues to battle the continuing pattern of domestic abuse, while using every ounce of strength she has to ensure her children do not follow the same path. When it seems that all the odds are stacked against her, something miraculous happens.

This book will remind you that, though life may not unfold as we hope, it always offers us an opportunity to learn, grow, and heal when we open to the wisdom of our wounds.
