Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This book is the best resource out there!
Date published: 2011-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insightful & Helpful I find Susan Forward's book full of relevant and handy information for anyone who faces "in laws issues'. The book is easy to read and offers many thoughtful and healthy solutions for any possible toxic "in laws situation"; it also offers anyone involved a chance to grow and heal by taking accountability of their feelings and actions. I highly recommend this book for couples looking for a long lasting resolution of their struggles with their in laws in a respectful, dignified and peaceful manner. It certainly helped me.
