My Review – 5 Stars – A Memoir of Relentless Strength and Humour to Overcome
A raw, and wonderfully written accounting about a journey of self discovery along with stories of struggles and hardships the author endured in her life. This book takes us through a whirlwind of emotions. Although written with great wit and humour, this author suffered many obstacles in her life from alcoholism, to major health issues, including a brain tumour. And until she discovered her own strength and self worth, she endured an empty marriage that she relentlessly tried to salvage.
As a reader, I was rooting for her halfway through the book to get rid of him. I won’t include any spoilers here, but there are a lot of great life lessons that can be taken from this book.
