by whrswaldo on Apr 8, 2010

Helpful and encouraging

by PammieLee on Jan 1, 2010

A beautiful book that encourages the reader to look beyond the travails of difficult situations to the growth that occurs in these pivotal moments. I read this book while suffering through a death of a dear friend and the loss of another important relationship. I found the book encouraging and thankfully devoid of moralizing and platitudes. I recommend this book for anyone facing a challenging life situation.

difficult times

by Luckygirl on Aug 27, 2009

Didn't read all of the book because after the first few chapters I didn't seem to be on the same thinking as the author and didn't want to continue. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

A good read

by Milly52 on May 4, 2009

A favorite book. I have already given it away to a younger woman. Lesser is a thoughtful writer. She is not afraid to share. Her book rings with the truth.
