Dear Family: There are no heroes or villains, just a small heart broken into pieces.

Dear Family is a book about relationships, about family and how a single person can influence it. It is a story of a family rendered apart and torn to bits because of the behaviour and actions of one individual. The lack of responsibility and love that created a dysfunctional unit of what could have been a family.

It is a poignant cry of a child, now a woman, to understand why her family turned out to be the way it is. In a series of letters addressed to the main characters of this family, MissBlackChurch, tries to understand how and where the family broke apart and the reasons why they could never get together again.

It is a cry of a child to her parents asking why they subjected their children to violence and domestic strife. It asks questions why there was infidelity and why did the parents continue the charade of a marriage, even when they could no longer bear to be around each other. It brings home the point of what happens to children in dysfunctional families and how it can destroy their lives. The book is an appeal to parents to be more responsible and caring.

Dear Family is a book that will make you think of your own relationships, and the reason why people continue even when the relationship is dead and gone. It will make you examine your own conduct and behaviour and perhaps help you find a way.
