Misti B., the author, is a member in good standing of Debtors' Anonymous (DA). Forgive Us Our Debts, Please! is a 365-day journal written to provide other DA-ers with a dose of daily humor. There are 365 days in a year, but there are only twelve steps in any twelve-step program, plus there are a limited number of ways to come to terms with one's problems.
This daily journal is extremely open and personal. Misti B. doesn't shy away from mistakes she has made, but also is honest about the times that she finally got the DA message. Each day contains either stories, or wishes, or successes and failures in working the program, or the power of the Higher Power, giving it up to the Higher Power, and working through the process of becoming a prayerful person. An addiction to alcohol means putting it aside forever, but the same isn't true with managing money. It can be an almost daily struggle.
Ultimately, I give this book high marks for what it is, but I must warn readers that unless you have a real interest in a debtor somewhere in your life, this book will probably not speak to you. If you are a debtor yourself, I would highly recommend that you get this 365-day cautionary tale and hang onto it.
