The Forgiveness Journey 

“One of the best books I’ve read about letting go of grudges. Covers the topic from different points of view. I particularly like the author’s writing style.”

“Particularly liked the chapter about forgiving diseases. I’ve never heard anybody talk about this before. As I worked through the exercises I became very emotional. I have lived with Lupus my whole life. and although her disease is different from mine, it sounded like we both had the same fears we had to deal with.”

“After reading Coiro’s book, all I can say is she’s a brave woman!”


“I read this book, and it was such a great release of hatred and so much much more. But I’ll never ever forget it. Very unique and different.“ 


“The best book I’ve read so far on forgiveness and releasing the heavy baggage of grudges.”


“A powerful book if you are having a hard time with forgiving. I’ve read a lot of books on forgiveness, but this book covered topics that I’ve would never have thought about.”


“Coiro writes with passion, humor, and insight. She openly shares her own struggles and how her life was changed when she was able to forgive grudges that lasted for many years. She also offers tools, exercises and interviews that come to life, grieving, and so much more. It emphasizes that forgiveness heals the forgiver.” 


“Her writing style is very warm, and it feels as if you’re having a conversation with her.”


“No preaching in this book. Just wisdom and insight.”


“The Forgiveness Journey shares a beautiful insight. Namely, that we are all capable of forgiveness, no matter how hurt we feel. Forgiveness, Coiro states, doesn’t always mean reconciliation, but it means relieving ourselves of our emotional pain. She outlines a 9-step program, plus relaxation & meditation exercises, to help us on our path to recover joy and peace of mind. Forgiving our parents, children, partners, spouses, siblings, ourselves, and even chronic illness, are topics she covers. She also shares her own story of forgiveness, a story remarkable in its honesty.”


“Written in an encouraging and compassionate voice, The Forgiveness Journey can help those of us trapped in the agony of hurt and blame to finally see the way out and forgive.”

The Forgiveness Journey Workbook 

“Healing, Unique, Uplifting, Witty, and Powerful! I read Ms. Coiro‘s other book about forgiveness, and it opened my eyes and made me realize I was suffering from my own hate. The questions and exercises helped. I love the way she writes – compassionate, firm, a great sense of humor. She’s also openly talked about some unanticipated  struggles she experienced from a “toxic” sibling, after her first book was published. I also like the 12 step references, I’m a big fan!”


“I read Coiro’s other book on forgiveness, and it helped a lot, so I was anxious to read the workbook. In this book  she examines additional insights. The questions were very powerful and eye-opening. I can tell she put a lot of thought into the essays, exercises and questions.”


“The workbook helped me to identify feelings and that I was unaware of and gain a deeper understanding of myself. Even if you didn’t read the first book, this workbook can help you to let go of the pain of lingering grudges, and help you to get a deeper understanding about yourself.”


“Very good workbook. Raises questions that helped me to understand myself better. I especially  loved the mindfulness chapter and the final chapter. Deep, thorough, helpful, well-written.”


I read this author’s other book, The Forgiveness Journey, and I loved it. So enlightening, helpful and healing. The workbook was also terrific! It helped me to work through years of anger and hate, and I feel so relieved. I will never forget this experience.
