Where Have I Been All My Life? – A Journey Toward Love and Wholeness
Where Have I Been All My Life? is a compelling memoir recounting one woman’s journey from grief and a profound feeling of unworthiness, to wholeness and healing. It begins with the chillingly swift death of Cheryl’s mother, and is followed by her foray into the center of mourning with poignant visits back to her childhood, and a sometimes hilarious yet powerful experience of erotic transference with her therapist.
With wisdom, grace and humor, Cheryl recounts the grief games she plays in an effort to resurrect her mother, her misguided efforts to get her therapist to run away with her (or at least accept her gifts), and the transformation of her husband from fantasy man, to ordinary guy, to superhero. In the process of finding herself, she discovers aching revelations about her family and her past, what she must leave behind and what she can carry with her.
In this tender memoir, readers will recognize themselves, plumb their own life experiences, and find sustenance for the difficult yet vital journey toward love and wholeness—a journey we all must take if we want to be free.
