I'm not a big memoir reader; I prefer the stuff that isn't so realistic and that I can get lost in. But, occasionally, I find an author who can create their memoir in such a way that hits home with me and sucks me into the heart of the book. This is one of those rare instances where I absolutely LOVED the memoir.
This is a beautiful and moving story...a story of a courageous woman's battle with polio, of her motivations, of her not giving up and of following her dream. All too often people give up when they are down, or can't find the will power to go on. This amazingly inspiring woman is an encouragement to everyone who has a dream, who doesn't think they have the will power. Through her words, her wisdom and her experiences, she brings a brighter future to all who take the time to read this book.
It took me a couple of sittings to read through this, not because it wasn't a good book, but because it was one that I wanted to savor. I wanted to cry every tear, I wanted to laugh every laugh and I wanted to soak in every thought that she put out in this book.
If you are down in your life, and are looking for a pick-me-up, a motivating story, an emotionally moving life experience, then please grab a copy of this 5-star memoir. You will be so encouraged by the end of this book and will be a fan of this incredible woman.
