Sunday Book Review – Understanding – An Anthology of True and Significant Life Events

Welcome to my Sunday Book Review. This week I’d like to share my own review for the book Understanding, which I’m thrilled to have taken part in with 19 other authors, compiled by Stevie Turner. This book is filled with moving events shared by these authors with answers to Stevie’s questions pertaining to each author’s experiences.





The following authors and bloggers kindly answered questions posed by Stevie Turner regarding significant life experiences they had undergone. These events include sexual abuse, a near death experience, alcoholism, being diagnosed with cancer, depression, losing weight, getting married, being a mother to many children, being the daughter of a narcissistic mother, and many more!

All proceeds will go to Cancer Research.

My 5 Star Review:

This anthology takes us into the lives and perspectives of some talented authors with a personal sharing of some of their life’s traumatic events, all on various topics from overcoming addictions, sexual abuse, losing weight and keep it off, near death experience, to living with a narcissist and more!

These stories are a raw and sincere telling about how these authors found themselves in these situations and how they triumphed on overcoming their situations. There is so much in these stories that readers will no doubt find themselves relating to some of these experiences, and can hopefully take the positive from to practice in their own lives. The stories are told in response to author Stevie Turner’s questions which delve deeply into each author’s personal situation. And all proceeds from sales going to cancer research, a worthy cause to contribute to.
