Understanding me a book by Claire Plaskow

In this deeply personal and moving memoir, Claire invites readers into her world of hidden pain and ultimate transformation. An incredible story which started with a podcast interview, we follow her journey from a life shrouded in secrecy and self-imposed exile to a courageous unveiling of her true self. With honesty and resilience, Claire shares her harrowing story of abuse, loss, and the relentless quest for love and understanding. Through the lens of her experiences, readers are compelled to reflect on their own battles, be they financial struggles, relationship challenges, health issues, parenthood, abuse, depression, prejudice, or social exclusion. This book is a testament to the power of self-discovery and the importance of embracing our own well-being. We are reminded that, above all else, we must prioritise our own happiness and authenticity, shedding the masks we wear for the world and finding the strength to be unapologetically ourselves. In her inspiring journey of self-acceptance, Claire’s story becomes a beacon of hope, encouraging us all to reach out, uplift others, and embark on our own path to authenticity.
