"Pathways to Fight or Flight" by novelist "Rose Mae Carrier" is not a book that will appeal to every reader because its topic is very difficult to read about.
This is the story of a young child whose parents divorce when she is two years old and from that point in time, until nearly 30 years later, she never sees her father again.
Left to the mercy of her narcissistic, self-absorbed mother, the little girl is left to fend for herself in every way, shape and form. The hurt that is internalized by the child at her father's abandonment, coupled with her mother's cruelty in her interactions with her daughter, make for a very difficult life to say the least.
This story makes one think back to one's own childhood and rekindles thoughts and memories of how our own parents dealt with these very situations.
While this book in and of itself is a very difficult read, that being said, I think that the story still has merit and should be read.
Will I recommend this book to others? YES
