There are millions of books in the world, lengths varied across the board. However, when I went to look to see if something made sense to me, all I could find at the time were books with a heavy focus on psychology or religion. Now, I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with those, and if that is what you want, great. I just wanted something that felt more personal. I wanted to hear from other angel parents, and at that time I couldn’t find any. After much encouragement from a dear friend, I began the process of writing “Shattered Soul: An Angel Parent’s Journey” and eventually brought it to fruition. Since that time, there are several different books out there that have helped others, and as they become recommended, we will post them here.
If you would like to recommend a book to this list, please contact us and we’ll be certain to get the information up as quickly as possible.
