The Broken Chain Conundrum: A very peculiar life story

Volume 1 of the life of Daniel O’Beeve

By Jim Byrne


Front cover, Broken Chain, 1

The Broken Chain Conundrum refers to the problem of recovering from childhood trauma, which breaks the attachment link to the mother; which establishes an avoidant attachment style; which promotes a passive-withdrawing personality adaptation.  How can a boy become a successful young man; a sensitive, caring lover; a husband, when he has no idea – in his heart and guts – what love is; or what relationships is?

This fictionalized autobiography tracks the attempts of just such a young man – a damaged man – to try to find love in a world he does not understand.
