Caregiving is inherently difficult, but navigating care for an estranged parent, or even one who challenges your boundaries, adds more layers of stress and emotional turmoil. 

Today my conversation is with two people who understand this. Laura Davis is an author of 6 books, including I thought we’d never speak again, the road from estrangement to reconciliation and her first memoir The Burning Light of Two Stars: A Mother-Daughter Story which tells the story of her traumatic and tumultuous relationship with her mother which includes her caring for her at the end of her life. Karen Anderson is a life coach and the author of Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters: A Guide for Separation, Liberation and Inspiration. 

We discuss not only the challenges that accompany these relationships but how you can find peace in the midst of it.
