Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

Just Another Girl's Story: A Memoir On Finding Redemption by Laura Eckert is a heartbreaking, revealing memoir that explores one woman’s inner wounds and her struggle against depression, taking the reader along on a difficult journey to inner freedom and redemption. Laura Eckert was a broken soul at the tender age of sixteen when she had her first abortion, but that wasn’t enough. Another abortion happened when she was seventeen.

An alcoholic at a youthful age and besieged by frequent bouts of depression, Laura experienced a lot of suffering and shame, unable to heal and gain her freedom from sex addiction. But then she turns thirty and is compelled to take responsibility for her two children and her home. She found freedom and redemption in giving and receiving love. Her journey towards personal transformation is chronicled in these pages, a story that will encourage anyone fettered by any form of addiction to seek hope and healing.

Laura’s story is wonderfully written in a voice that is as clear as it is unwavering, and readers will be gripped by the honesty in her voice and her courage to bare her soul to the reader. She talks about things people would rather carry with them to the grave and, in so doing, she demonstrates that any broken soul can find the light of freedom and the healing they deserve. The writing is fluid and it features very emotionally rich passages and insightful thoughts. Just Another Girl's Story: A Memoir On Finding Redemption is both entertaining and inspiring, a story that carries the powerful message that we can’t be broken beyond repair.
