Publisher's Summary

People often ask Sarah, "How did you forgive your alcoholic mother?"  

How do you forgive someone who carelessly brushed aside your pain, who caused such destruction, and who doesn't show remorse? How do you know when to stay and when to go?  

In The Complicated Heart, you will travel through Sarah's story with her, from age 14 and beyond, as she wrestles with these very questions. Prepare yourself: She holds nothing back.  

If you've struggled with a difficult relationship, if you've felt torn-up and crazy and confused because of it, if you just want to know how to move forward and be okay, this story is for you.  

Dysfunction does not have to be your destiny or your identity. 

Victory is on the table.  

What's more: You'll not only travel with Sarah, you'll travel with her mom as well as you hear her mom's journal entries and letters. What goes on in the mind of the person who hurt you the most? In this story, you'll get a rare peek into that mind and heart.

Powerful book on forgiveness

This book is raw and one that I would encourage all to read! As Sarah Mae states, “you will find yourself in this book.” Not only does Sarah share a testimony that is so powerful, she does it with grace and an abundance of mercy on those who have been so hurtful. She has done the hard work that is needed in forgiveness, and she shines light on how others may experience the same peace. This book is a true gift from God! I feel honored to have read it, and I will forever share it with others.

WILL TOUCH YOUR SOUL!

This book went deeper than I thought. If you are seeking for answers about your complicated mother-daughter relationship I highly recommend this book! I cried many times during this reading and it has changed my life forever. I am so grateful to the author and her mother for the courage to display their trails to the world. This story was heaven sent.

A powerful story, so perfectly called complicated.

An amazing story of overcoming through the power of Jesus. Forgiveness, heartache and oh so complicated moldings. Truly inspiring and a powerful message.

I could not stop listening to this book

I wish I could hug Sarah Mae and her Mom for writing this. I appreciated the raw honesty and at the same time the comforting hope it gave.
