“The Power of Memoir: How to Write Your Healing Story,” by Linda Joy Myers’ (reviewed by Janet Riehl)
On Matilda Butler’s and Kendra Bonnett’s Women’s Memoirs “Book Raves” I’ve reviewed Linda Joy Myers’ The Power of Memoir: How to Write Your Healing Story
Linda’s book combines a manual of writing craft with a companion to guide the writer’s psyche towards health and wholeness. As a family therapist Myers understandably focuses on family-based memoir, often ones that tell stories of traumatic childhoods. She knows what she’s talking about both as a therapist and memoirist herself (Don’t Call Me Mother: Breaking the Chain of Mother-Daughter Abandonment).
