A Warrior’s Ride to Shine tells the story of Camilla Patten, an intrepid woman who has fought to keep her “light” despite the many troubles life had in store for her. Born into a family where only male components were considered good for business, she was fired from work after being targeted by a colleague. Also, she had to face the end of her marriage. However, she did not surrender and has finally found her way to shine, thanks to a bicycle and her strong character. After improving her own life, Patten has also helped other entrepreneur women who have faced the same problems. Thus, she has founded Female Warrior Leaders, a national women’s enterprise.
I am a proud cyclist myself, so the fact that someone has written a book about how to “awaken your inner strength on a bicycle” immediately excited me. I am glad to say that Patten has more than met my expectations. The tone of A Warrior’s Ride to Shine is lively, but its message is of the most serious kind, especially in a world that is still dominated by men. Patten tells her personal story with humor and heartfelt emotion. She has drawn an excellent picture of the difficulties she had to overcome and of the way she reacted to them. As she speaks from the heart, her example is helpful for every woman who wants to achieve something beautiful in her life. I appreciate the continuous encouragement Patten gives to her readers. Through her energetic and optimistic words, she will inspire women to pursue what is best for them in life.
