Product description

Review

"Where Hope Lives:

What we experience in childhood shapes us forever―and that is especially true for young victims of trauma. It’s a lesson Oprah learned as a child being raised by an abusive grandmother. She developed 'a keen sense of when trouble was brewing'―when she would be subjected to 'whuppings' at times so brutal, the welts left behind would bleed through her clothing.

As a result of this and other abuse she suffered, Oprah has had a lifelong interest in understanding and overcoming the profound effects of early trauma―and helping others do the same.
Now, she’s teamed up with neuroscientist and child trauma expert Bruce Perry, MD, PhD, on this essential book. Revealing, intimate, and educational, it’s a testament to the authors’ wish for readers to come to grips with, and let go of, the past―and to move forward into 'post-traumatic wisdom.'"


―Leigh Haber,

1.0 out of 5 stars Oprah's "What Happened To You" on a Paperwhite makes her "voice" difficult to read
Reviewed in Canada on May 1, 2021
Oprah's "voice" in this book must be in a coloured font but on a black-and-white Paperwhite e-reader, it's very pale and hard to read. I am only reviewing the font, not the content, so it can be corrected for future customers. I'd like an update, when the problem is rectified.
