Our family legacies both positive and negative are passed down from one generation to the next in ways that are not fully understood. This secondary form of trauma which, Dr. Gita Baack calls “Inherited Trauma”, has not received adequate attention — a failing that perpetuates cycles of pain hatred and sometimes violence. In The Inheritors readers are given the opportunity to reflect on the inherited burdens they carry as well as the resilience that has given them the power to not only survive but also to thrive. Through engaging stories and unique concepts, readers will learn to reclaim their lives reflect on questions that are posed at the end of each chapter and begin to write their own story.
