The bumpy relationship between bestselling author Laura Davis and her mom was well-documented long before her recent memoir The Burning Light Between Two Stars: A Mother-Daughter Story was published and resulted in a long period of estrangment. Yet where some of us may have written the relationship off forever, Laura and her mother worked hard to lay a foundation of respect and forgiveness.


You will learn:

  1. As long as both parties are willing to work, the opportunity for both hope and change are endless.
  2. People with an abuse history with their parent might wisely choose to maintain boundaries with their parent.
  3. Enlisting the help of a coach or therapist or parenting course may be useful in the process of mending relationships.


Laura Davis is the author of The Burning Light of Two Stars, The Courage to Heal, and four other groundbreaking books. In addition to writing books that inspire, the work of Laura’s heart is to teach. For more than twenty years, she’s helped people find their voices, tell their stories, and hone their craft. Laura has been published in Publisher’s Weekly, Writer’s Digest, CrimeReads, Brevity, and The New York Times, featured in the Los Angeles Review of Books, and has been an engaging guest on QWERTY, Write-Minded, The Only One in the Room, and dozens of other podcasts. She’s been a featured speaker for The National Association of Memoir Writers and a popular craft teacher at The San Miguel Writer’s Conference.
