I absolutely loved this book. Started reading it and could not put it down until I was done.

This book is both a look at the physical and the spiritual side of the human being. Fighting the very human diseases of addiction and fear, we often manage to completely get drawn down into the day to day suffering that, frankly, we put upon ourselves - if only we would remember that there is someone who is there for you.

Born to Return the Gift beautifully portrays the struggles and disconnect our the main character - having been exposed to the harsh realities of addiction at a young age, she grows up with low self-esteem and slowly but very surely throws herself into the world of depression and suffering. Yet, somehow through the haze, she finds herself reaching towards a stronger being -only to realize that she was indeed put on this earth for a reason and that she can live up to that great expectation.

This book is a gem. I loved the way it was written and I liked the fact that it is so empowering. This book tackles a tough subject matter - depression and the struggle to be the person that you were meant to be - however, it tackles it in a loving and honest way that made me cheer for our main character AND remember that we all have a worthwile life to live.

Great, great read.
