MEMOIR/NONFICTION



A Lifetime of guilt -- What does it take to finally break free?



Somehow I believed it was my obligation to try to do the right thing by her because she had given birth to me.



Burdened with constant worry for her father and the guilt caused by her mother's narcissism, D.G. Kaye had a short childhood. When she moved away from home at age eighteen, she began to grow into herself, overcoming her lack of guidance and her insecurities. Her life experiences became her teachers, and she learned from the mistakes and choices she made along the way, plagued by the guilt she carried for her mother.



Conflicted Hearts is a heartfelt journey of self-discovery and acceptance, an exploration of the quest for solace from emotional guilt.

Biographie de l'auteur

D.G. Kaye was born and resides in Toronto, Canada. She loves to read, shop, travel, and play poker when she gets the chance. Kaye has been writing about her thoughts on life since she was a young girl, as pen and paper became her emotional outlet. Through the years of compiling her thoughts and memories in a journal, she wrote this book as a cathartic release. Kaye wanted to share her story in recognition of the many people who struggle with their past, perhaps shedding light on how powerfully a mother can impact a child throughout her life. This is Kaye’s debut book. She is currently working on her second book, a humorous satire on menopause, which will be released in spring/summer of 2014.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a great find! 20 décembre 2013
Par Karen B - Publié sur Amazon.com

Yesterday I happened to come across this book and I am so glad that I did. It made me laugh, it made me sad, it made me angry but most of all, it made me cheer for D.G. Kaye! She writes with candor and insight, passion and heart. It is an easy comfortable read, much like having a conversation and I couldnt put the book down until the conversation was over. You can feel the little girl's worry and confusion, the teenager's guilt and angst, the sadness and the searching of the young woman and finally the strength of the adult. Ms. Kaye writes about the effects her mother's actions has had on her entire life and the decisions she has made but she is never mean spirited about it and it makes you love her more.

It is a book that makes you think, reflect, understand and most of all it is a book that shows you that with the right attitude and beliefs, you can forgive and move forward. I loved it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST-READ BOOK! 21 août 2014
Par Deborah A. Bowman, author - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
How can you sum up a life...your own or someone else's? It's a daunting task. Even a quiet, reserved life is hard to put into words. But what if all you have ever known is adversity, conflict, and neglect from your first remembered, conscious thought. How can beauty and serenity survive in a toxic wasteland? Yet, a sensitive, caring individual did just that--D.G. Kaye--and she shares her amazing true life story with us mere mortals. A guilt ridden young girl, who carries her guilt through life, but haven't many of us been there? Even knowing the guilt is not justified doesn't make the pain go away. Throw in heartbreak, abuse, an incurable immune-deficiency disease, and almost losing the love of her life...how do you cope? How do you become spiritual, giving, loving, and caring? Read "Conflicted Hearts" by D.G. Kaye, and you will know a true angel walks among us.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Truthful memories to unfasten for others the doors to walk through to the other side of life 8 juillet 2015
Par Sherrey Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
"Imagine feeling frustrated and powerless in a situation you're desperate to resolve. When you're a child, that angst multiplies immensely because you are only that--a child. You have no power to speak out about what you're feeling, and neither are you permitted to ask questions that might soothe your inner turmoil, because the cause of your dilemmas are adult matters that apparently shouldn't concern you." ~ D.G. Kaye, Conflicted Hearts

My Thoughts:

At the beginning of Chapter 8 of Conflicted Hearts , the same chapter from which the above quote is taken, D.G. Kaye writes the following:

"We are the products of our parents. How can they teach us what they didn't know?"

Likely, these words resonate with more than one reader with parents from the same generation as Kaye's.

The author's fluid writing style and storyteller's voice gives the reader a sense of sitting down over a steaming cup of coffee or tea with a friend. The friend begins to tell you what life was like for her as a child. You sit in disbelief, wondering how this positive, strong, loving woman lived through the parenting received at the mind and hands of her mother.

Yet, our author and friend lives with a guilt burdening her for far too long. This is the skin she wants to shed--the skin of her guilt feelings. It appears to this reader nothing has been D.G. Kaye's fault with respect to her mother and her mother's behavior. The guilt is just another layer applied like frosting on a cake. Only this isn't frosting. It isn't sweet, and it leaves an acid taste in your mouth.

D.G. Kaye is not ashamed nor abashed about telling her story and sharing it with those willing to read. Her truthful memories will unfasten for others the doors to walk through to the other side of life. Life filled with love, happiness, and respect.

Thank you to the author for the gift of her words.

My Recommendation:

I highly recommend this book for anyone who lived through an emotionally and verbally abusive childhood, one like D.G. Kaye's. Remember, you are not the one at fault, and reading Kaye's memoir will help you understand that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enthralling and emotional - a 'can't put downer' 26 novembre 2014
Par Deborah Jay - Publié sur Amazon.com

This was my first time, reading a memoir. I am mostly a fiction reader, and occasionally I dip into the biography of a famous name that interests me, but memoir? Not something I'd considered trying.
I decided to read this particular memoir after meeting the author online, chatting on our respective blogs and by email. The other draw was that it promised some insight into a narcissistic personality (the author's mother), and I've always been fascinated by the psychology of personality disorders - a pretty useful trait for me as an author, as it gives me lots of scope for developing my characters.
So with this in mind, I opened up Conflicted Hearts and was instantly drawn into the tale. All too often, we quote Mark Twain's idiom, `truth is stranger than fiction', and here that indeed holds true. I was enthralled by the story of this woman who was only truly interested in herself, and in being admired by others, and the toll this took on her husband and children. The total inability to recognise that anything about her way of life was wrong, or to acknowledge the lifelong negative influence it would have on her offspring, was staggering, all the more so considering that this was not fiction.
This memoir is, of course, told from the perspective of one of those children, and chronicles the author's journey from her difficult childhood through the relative emancipation of leaving home and exploring her own life, to the later responsibilities of the mature adult.
Kaye's writing style is fluid and exceedingly readable, expressing the story in a series of vignettes of her life, sometimes emotionally raw and at other times charming and funny. I'd like to thank her for her honesty, and for sharing what has clearly been a difficult journey with such an outlook of hope and positivity, albeit at times somewhat strained.
Memoirs? If they are as absorbing and enlightening as this one, I may read a few more.
