All too often forgiveness has been made a goal in and of itself. And what if it were more a matter of turning the page in order to finally achieve liberation? Of assuming the injuries rather than expecting impossible repair? Lytta Basset offers us the major stages of this essential peace-making with the past. Step by step, relying on biblical characters and episodes, she invites us to follow a trajectory of renewal in order to accept and love ourselves. Only then, does inner unity come to be and is joy manifest.
