Readers' Thoughts

Step Back Book Cover
  • “Simply extraordinary – I found it thoughtful, incisive, and extremely well-written. I couldn’t put it down, and read the entire book in one sitting. It is not only a guide to being a stepmother, but it is invaluable for all human relationships – a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend.”

    - Sherry Lansing, former CEO of Paramount Pictures, CEO of The Sherry Lansing Foundation
  • I am convinced that this is an important book that serves an unmet need. Indeed, Ms. Bernard is writing about a subject that clearly needs to be discussed openly, but rarely is.

    - T. A. Barron, author, The Lost Years of Merlin and The Great Tree of Avalon

  • “In STEP BACK, Margit Eva Bernard has masterfully captured the essence of what it is to be a stepmother. With poetry and insights, her prescription to 'step back' leads us from hurt to healing, and finally, to acceptance. A must-read for every stepparent.”

    - Vicki Reynolds, former mayor of Beverly Hills, civic leader, philanthropist
  • ...a lovely blend of personal experience, action and reflection by Ms. Bernard through years of being a stepmother...filled with useful observations, human experiences and wise comments.

  • This book isn't just for stepmothers; it should be read by anyone who wants to improve every one of their relationships. Actually, it should be read by everyone...

    - Evelyn L. Barnes, poet
  • "I found Margit's personal story very compelling -- she sounds like a remarkable woman who has led an incredible life. Her book is a well-balanced amalgamation of personal stories, advice and meditative contemplation."
