Here are some comments from readers. There are more reviews on Amazon, where the book has a 5-star rating.

"...Your insight is terrific and you just seem to get me. Very awesome that I found you... You're a life saver. Such a sigh of relief that I'm not alone... I am so thankful for you and that you helped me exhale my truth so that I could continue to breathe." <3 <3  -- Holly
"I downloaded your book last night on my Kindle and I have to tell you that I didn't intend to read it just now.  I have some other books going and I wanted to finish them -- I thought!  Linda, you are an incredibly gifted writer.  I was going to read just "a little" and two hours later I had to quit and go to bed.  Very well done. I am proud to say that I know you and I am going to tell others about your book. I have been so moved so deeply by your story already. Thank you for sharing your story and your inner journey with the rest of us."  -- Robert C.


“I expected a memoir, but I got more: a novel, a great read, hard to put down... personal and vivid” -- Diana Howie, published playwright


“As for you memoir, it is amazing. It is so honest, open, and very easy to read. I got hooked from the start of reading it... I love your writing and admire you for what you share… You are truly amazing." – Dr. Abisola Gallagher-Hobson, Director of the Health & Wellness and Counseling Centers at New Jersey City University


“You are a fabulous writer and a woman with an amazing amount of courage. I'm glad that I read your book but have to tell you it was difficult. I cried, got extremely angry, was sad, and confused, but after a day of rolling it around in my head decided that I wanted to let you know that your book is something a lot of people will read. You could have been telling my story (the reason I found it hard to read, but unable to put it down) and I was or maybe still am a cross between you and your sister. Just can't tell you how much I think your book is a wonderful thing. Thank you so much for sharing your story.” – Lorri


“I could kill you ! I have to get ready to teach class but instead I am engrossed in your book. I have MADE myself stop reading on page 40 BUT I am not happy!!!!! I want to stay and continue reading...I can't put it down, but put it down I must. RATS ! This book is MARVELOUS. Can't wait to pick it up later...
“Just called Bill. I said, "I will not be in class today. I tried to stop reading Linda's book, but I can't…
I just finished your beautiful work. This has to be published! What a great/painful piece. It would be easy to publish it as an "academic piece " but I would LOVE to see it on the mass market...and YOU on Oprah. My heart goes out to you with all you have been through. You are a true example of resilience in the face of adversity. What an amazing piece this is....once I regain my own groundedness I will be more articulate.” – Beth Waddel
