Visionary and co-author, Sharisa T. Robertson uses her testimony and journey of overcoming emotional, mental, financial, and sometimes physical abuse as a driving force to help women heal from their past, change their present, while working towards the future. Since beginning her own road to forgiveness after living more than half of her life in anger from having a troublesome relationship with her mother, she begin to take notice of the hurt in other women and how it hindered not only them but anyone and everything around them.
Sharisa thought that she was the only one who was battling this issue. Knowing that journaling is a great healing tool and since being healed of her past by sharing her story with her mom in book collaboration, Cheers To Your Success 2: Women on the Rise and Owning their Destiny by visionary Carol Sankar, she decided to do her own book project.
Completely clueless on what to do, she began to promote endlessly seeking writers.
Not just any writers but writers who, although were now adults, many with families, and had careers but were still negatively impacted by the things that has transpired between them and their mother. Writers that battled with un-forgiveness and wanted to let go but wasn't quite sure how. Writers who were ready to be healed. Writers who loved their mother but were ready confront the abuse that they suffered. Writers who wanted to share their testimony to help other women out there and who wanted to bring attention to this issue. Writers who hoped one day to restore the rleationship with their mother and if nothing else, destroy the bondage and curse from themselves, their families, and others.
At one point of time, there were18 women in the project but for various reason, alot of writers dropped out of the project, leaving the courageous 11. Eleven women from MI, CA, NC, TX, MD, NJ and NY. After a year in the making, tons of edits, great deal of opposition from our individual lives and collectively sometimes, but most imporatantly finally healing.
That is the essence of A Letter To My Mother: A Daughter's Perspective. The book is not only a wake up call but a release for these women and even myself, because we were able to finally have a voice and tell our story, get out what we had been holding in, and address so much by "talking" to the person who for some of us, our pain orginated from and who we would not be able to talk to otherwise.
Our moms could not tell us to shut-up, get over it, move on, that's not true, be cut off or interrupted, etc. We were able to speak what we have needed to speak for years, decades even. For many of us, our mother will never read our letters, this book and for some our mothers will and expectedly will not be happy. But we have a story to tell, this is our truths, maybe even your truth, or even an eyeopener to the truths to a woman you may know.
I invite you to embark on the journey of 11 women and read their letters, our letters to our mothers, from our perspective.

Please feel free to read over the endorsements for A Letter To Your Mother: A Daughter's Perspective:
Sharisa T. Robertson has brilliantly, methodically and courageously put together a masterpiece that gives the women contributing to this work permission to heal from their painful mother-daughter relationships. A Letter to My Mother: A Daughter's Perspective is a powerful compilation of uncut letters that finally gives the little girl inside each woman, whose voice was taken away or ignored, a safe place to express the unresolved issues, pain, rejection, abandonment, abuse, anger and yearning to be loved. This is a must read for all adults whose inner child is still without a voice and, therefore, has yet to heal and for the parents whose parenting style resembles that of the mothers in this book.
