I went to Target yesterday in search of a new book. Usually, I grab a Jodi Picoult and head out, because I quite enjoy her novels. But I realized that every single one they had in the store, I had already read... So, I figured it was time for me to search for a new author to explore. To be completely honest... I usually hate memoirs. And, I wasnt going to buy yours, but my husband was in a hurry, and it sounded interesting on the back description.
So, last night, I curled up with the book when I got into bed, expecting to read a couple of chapters until I dozed off. Well, it didn't quite work out that way... I finished the book at 1:20 this morning. I COULD NOT put it down. I have never left a message like this for an author before, but I feel compelled to tell you how absolutely inspiring your memoir was to me. Your book helped me understand how I was feeling in ways that I never thought were possible. Thanks to your story, I see that it really does, whether I like it or not... its just up to me to decide HOW I will let it affect me, and whether or not I will let it overpower who I am.
Your memoir explained the way you view who you have become, and how you got there in the most beautifully written way. Your courage and strength inspires me. Good luck to you in all of your future endeavors.
I can guarantee if I ever see another book on the shelf with your name on it, I will be picking it up. I am quite thankful that I happened upon your book last night... the only thing that pisses me off is that now I have nothing to read tonight!
