* I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
This book is an inspirational story about one woman's life from the age of fifteen to well into her adult years. It depicts her trials and tribulations through many parts of her life that she did not see as part of the future she had planned. Through Laura's eyes, the reader takes the journey along side her as she experiences first love, college, marriage, infertility, two premature births, a child with a disability, trust issues, infidelity, faith, starting over and more.
It was easy to feel what Laura was going through because it was told from her point of view. The feelings and emotions were very honest and truthful even when they didn't paint her in a positive light. Her accomplishments, struggles, failures and talk of faith were real and very easy to relate to. With very short chapters and an easy writing style the book can easily be started and finished in the same day.
I have one minor critique about the writing that I should mention. I found that there were an over abundance of exclamation marks within the writing and a few errors in some of the sentences that could be a little distracting. Having said that, I still very much enjoyed the story and was cheering and routing for Laura the entire way.
For anyone that is struggling with the cards that they have been dealt I think you should pick this book up and could really benefit from the message that it portrays. It was a very moving story that I am happy to have had the opportunity to review.
