“I read it in 3 days! I didn’t want it to end… What a story. Brave and humorous. Spoiler alert… The camping trip was told with gusto and I couldn’t stop laughing as my family goes camping often and it isn’t a lightweight sport! You have to read this book to know the joy and spirit of the author. My top read and with summer coming on you too will find humor and humility from the pages!” -Albin

“I found the book very interesting & engaging. While Susan Nelson’s struggle is difficult to imagine, hearing about the day to day fight to get her life back is inspiring and sometimes funny! Having met the author before reading the book, I would say she has recovered beautifully! I could never have guessed she had gone through such a debilitating tragedy.” -Kat”An incredible story.” -Liz

“I attended one of Susan Nelson’s motivational speeches on living with courageous authenticity. We were all mesmerized by her story, and with humor and grace, she lead us on a journey to invite more honesty into our lives. Now that I’ve read her book and understand her journey even more, I’m even more impressed and amazed by who she is! And how she met her husband at the end was super sweet. I love that they found each other!”  – Dr. Lynn Chang,
