Goodreads asked Catherine Lawton:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Catherine Lawton I got the idea for "Journeys to Mother Love" when four young women shared with me their stories of mother/child relational wounds and the healing they were experiencing. I then sent feelers to writers groups across the country and received back excruciatingly honest but powerful and profound personal memoirs. Next step, I opened my old journals and my old wounds and came to grips with my personal story of feeling forsaken but finding joyful wholeness. Truly I felt God's hand in the process as I compiled all these stories, wrote an introduction, and as the book was released by Cladach Publishing almost two years ago.
