Episode 93: Mothers, daughters, estrangement and healing with Laura Davis

Trigger Warning: Sexual Abuse

Laura Davis is the author of 6 non-fiction books which have sold more than 1.8 million copies. She’s talking here mainly about her latest book, her first memoir: The Burning Light of Two Stars: A Mother-Daughter Story. I finished the book the day before recording, and was profoundly moved by it. I was also very tearful. I’m grateful to Laura for sharing her story and giving me the opportunity to read it. I recommend the book for all women as we’re all daughters. And many of us have people who we’d like to be closer to.

We talk about:

  • Why Laura wrote this particular book
  • The challenge of untying the mother daughter knot
  • Digging deep to tell such a vulnerable story
  • The impact of life trauma on women’s passion and purpose
  • Coming to terms with life trauma
  • Helping people heal from trauma and especially sexual abuse
  • Coping with family estrangement
  • What Laura has learnt about mother daughter relationships
  • How Laura’s feelings towards her mother changed as she got older and sicker
  • Laura’s advice for women when they lose their parents and mothers especially

And more!
