“Packed with intimate details that may surprise even her most dedicated fans.” —EW.com

About the Author

Shania Twain rose to fame in the early 1990s with her debut album Shania Twain (1993), and achieved worldwide success with her 1997 album Come On Over, which became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician, and the best selling country album of all time.  A five-time Grammy Award winner, Twain has also achieved major success as a songwriter, winning 27 BMI Songwriter awards. Despite the fact Twain has released very few albums, she has sold over 75 million albums worldwide to date, including 48 million in the U.S.  Her docu-series on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network will debut in the spring. This is her first book.

I have been a Shania fan for a long time. Knowing how secluded and reclusive Shania has been for a lot of years my expectations for this book were not very high. I am so surprised by some of the things she reveals about her past with shocking honesty. It is such a fascinating journey I could not put it down until the very end! I highly recommend this book to anyone regardless if you enjoy her music or not.

Format: Hardcover
By 1999 Shania Twain was on top of the world: her albums sold in the millions, her tours were sell-outs, she was named "Entertainer of the Year" from the Country Music Association, one of only five female acts to ever achieve that honour in the award's 40 year plus history, she was happily married, and was about to start a family. She was able to put the pain of a tragic childhood behind her after her parents were killed in an automobile crash, help raise her siblings, and make it in a very competetive industry and go on to be one of the most popular singers ever. Then suddenly everything changed.

"From This Moment On" (also the title of one of Shania's most beautiful love songs)is indeed Shania's autobiography, but it is so much more. This is also a book for survivors for people who have been betrayed by those with whom they loved. For the first time she writes about growing up in poverty in northern Canada sometimes having to go through garbage dumps to find cloths, but always having a dream that she would make it one day. She discusses the highs and lows of the music industry, her eventual love for her first husband Mutt Lange, and how that marriage ended a few years ago after he had an affair with her best friend. The book not only was cathartic for Shania to write about, but the message is clear: adultery can happen to anyone, especially someone as beautiful and talented as Shania Twain, but you can and will survive.

After reading Shania's book her message to her readers is clear: if someone hurts you eradicate them totally out of your life. She mentions how she doesn't allow her son to see the woman who is now with her former husband (Shania's former best friend).

I have been a Shania Twain from the beginning with her first album "Shania Twain". In knowing how private she has always been she is very open in this book. There were times when I was crying, laughting and doing both at the same time. I COULD NOT put it down. It is definatley worth reading. I think she accomplished what she set out to do and that was be a voice for other people. I could certainly relate to many of her situations.I wish her only the best and hope to hear her beautiful voice soon. My best to you Shania.

You do not have to be a Shania Twain fan to enjoy this book. You just need to be interested in the struggles that we face in life, and how we can triumph over them, to enjoy this book.

Shania's story is extremely interesting. This poor woman describes growing up with hardly anything to eat, a freezing cold house without heat, a stepdad who abused her Mom in front of Shania and the family, going so far as to stick her Mom's head in a toilet bowl. The man had issues.

Yet, Shania still finds a way to hold her Stepdad in high regard, despite all this, because "he tried to take care of his family, worked hard, and showed interest in" her music. I am not one to judge, but Shania's stepdad should have forgotten about his pride, and allowed the family to receive welfare and or other benefits while he had a hard time finding work.

Shania then goes on to detail the horrible day when both of her parents were killed in a car accident, leaving her to raise her siblings. But since the family was poor, Shania and her siblings couldnt enjoy a hot shower before school. No, Shania had to take them to a nearby stream, and wash them in it, before they went to school.

One of the most touching parts of Shania's book was when she was face to face with a Moose, and instead of pulling the trigger on her rifle (her stepdad taught her to hunt when she was young), she realized that He, the Moose, had just as much of a right to live that she did. That, coupled with Shania's hearing a bear in the distance one day, who apparently was cruelly shot by a hunter, but not killed...the poor bear being left to suffer, convinced Shania that the days of killing were over, and she has not only not killed any animals in the last 20 years, but she is a vegetarian as well.

Although I've always enjoyed Shania Twains music, I had never followed her life/career much and I'll be honest - what attracted me to this book was the dramatic story surrounding the end of her marriage. The book is generally divided into 3 components - the first being the largest, about her childhood and select experiences growing up. Although there were a few interesting revelations here, since Im not a huge fan this wasnt a hugely enticing part of the book. The second part focuses on the start of her career, touring and ever so briefly - meeting her first husband. I do think that their courtship and marriage was almost entirely glossed over though...you never really get a sense of what it was she 'lost' here when she moves on to the topic of his betrayal and their subsequent divorce. And finally the final section discusses the breakup of her marriage and finding happiness again which was definitely what made this book worth the read. I completely appreciate the overwhelming honesty in which she discusses her feelings and experiences through that situation and applaud her for sharing so openly. Anyone who has ever found themselves in a situation of hurt or betrayal will completely find raw truth and comraderie in her experiences.
