She Took a Turn is penned by author Kristi J Smith in the memoir, spirituality, and inspirational writing genres. In this heartfelt work with plenty of honesty and heart, the author recounts her journey from a prescribed life of conformity as a devout Christian and obedient daughter to finding her true path through self-reflection and courageous choices. What results is a poignant and honest exploration of the self that we can all relate to on our own journeys of discovery. The author has crafted an enlightening and inspiring memoir as she fearlessly shares her personal odyssey of self-discovery. Through her candid storytelling, she invites readers into the complexities of her upbringing and the pivotal moments that led her to question societal norms and embrace authenticity.

The construction of the timeline is relevant and relatable, and the author has a great sense of self to see how small moments add up to bigger realizations later on down the line. Kristi J Smith's narrative is both entertaining and thought-provoking, filled with colorful characters and insightful reflections on personal, professional, and spiritual growth. I adored the genuine warmth of her words that made you feel as though you were chatting with a close friend. As she navigates through challenges and triumphs, Smith's journey serves as a beacon of hope and empowerment, encouraging readers to embark on their own quest for authenticity and fulfillment. Overall, She Took a Turn is a heartfelt invitation to embrace change, celebrate individuality, and chart a course toward a more authentic life, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone needing a change.
