In her memoir Unmothered: Life with a Mom Who Couldn’t Love Me, popular blogger and speaker Phylis Mantelli takes readers on the roller-coaster journey of growing up with an alcoholic, narcissistic mother. Though often made to feel worthless as a daughter, Phylis, by God’s grace, eventually breaks through the pain and replaces it with a heart of a daughter who loves her mom unconditionally. Her book offers hope and encouragement to those struggling with dysfunctional family relationships.
Phylis is a married mother of two grown daughters and a grandmother to her first grandson. She lives in Northern California and enjoys her garden, pool, Pilates, walking her dog and a peaceful view of the mountains each morning.
