A New Must Read Memoir,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir (Hardcover)
I found Kelle's blog about a year ago, and I remembering spending a full two days catching up on three years of entries I'd missed. It's bookmarked on my browser, and I never miss an entry. I love her zest for life, her honesty, and the way she pushes herself to have a positive outlook. This book made her experiences and her more "real" and therefore even more inspirational. I'll admit I have ALWAYS loved her rainbows and unicorns approach to life, but I have often wondered--how does she do this? This books shows the other side of the story--the heavy sobs that continued past Nella's birth story. It was an honor to share in these personal accounts, and it was truly motivating and inspirational to see Kelle pick herself back up and press on.
Very little of this book is quoted from the blog, so it's pretty much entirely new material. I wondered about this, and I was so pleasantly surprised.
This is a MUST read as a memoir, and it is especially a must read if you're a fan of Enjoying the Small Things.
Poignant, funny, moving. Loved every single page of it.
Not to mention, this is one of the most BEAUTIFULLY designed books I've ever seen. The page numbers, the font, the pages, the plethora of photographs--all stunning! Cannot recommend this highly enough.
