This book is a self-reflective memoir of a triumphant journey from childhood through adulthood to a fulfilled present. The author, Maggie Myklebust, invites the reader into her home, her life, past and present, and does so very comfortably. She embarks on her life journey with an honest portrayal of the people who affected her life while she has lived in 2 continents. She delves into her ancestry with warmth and love and describes the bumpy road of her life experiences starting in the Jersey coast of America and ending up in Norway with some stops on the way in Houston, Texas and the Netherlands.
Maggie's life begins in the Jersey shore with the backdrop of a cultural generation and an age where children want what they can't have. She is committed to getting what she wants and following her dreams, which she is not quite aware of at such a young age. She meets her soul mate at a very young age while on a trip to Norway. However, she returns to America and continues a teen age life there with her family. Her life takes her from her parents' home to a chaotic first marriage to a young boy not at all compatible to her. They start a family and her roller coaster ride begins. As the author confides her secrets and thoughts, the reader joins her in her roller coaster ride of life.
Life throws her some curves as well as opportunities which, as difficult as they may seem, she is willing to explore. She embraces these opportunities, combating fear and doubt.Read more ›
When I finally got around to reading it I couldn't put it down. Maggie Myklebust is a captivating author! She tells her life story is a way that would make history books as interesting to read as the latest "who done it". You never know what is going to happen next.
Her life is like a TV soap opera with more ups and downs than a roller coaster. I thought no body can have this many trials a tribulations until I thought about my own life, I think I may have seen even more than Maggie.
This is a book that is hard to put down. I think it would be of more interest to women but since I knew Mark and Michele I found it extremely interesting.
I am sure anyone who reads this book will find it very interesting reading.
On a more serious note, I give the author an immense amount of credit for opening her entire life to the world. She has been through so much, and the fact that she is letting every person in the world into every aspect of her life and letting them know all of her family's deepest secrets makes her an extremely respectible person.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone, but make sure you have free time when you start reading it because you will not be able to put it down until you are finished!
