These ladies are unflinchingly honest, laying bare their personal lives and their own hopes and aspirations to encourage others. Every cent made off this book is going to charity, but with their personal stories these ladies have demonstrated they not only have big hearts, they have guts. It takes real courage to leave an abusive relationship. It takes real courage to stare down depression and come out the victor. It takes real courage to be a single Mom. And it takes courage to write -- and especially to go it alone and put your writing before the world as an indie author. These brave ladies have done all that and more. Above all, it takes a heck of a lot of courage to overcome a battle with breast cancer. This book is an inspiring, illuminating read, but every book sold also helps make the life of breast cancer sufferers -- those courageous women who could be our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, ourselves -- just a little easier. Buy it today. If not for yourself, for a woman you love.
Now how does any of the above go with a review of a book? How does this help you decide on whether or not to purchase it? Why should you care how I feel? How did you get here when you used a different search term?
I can not answer any of these questions, only you, the reader of this, can. Now on to the review. I had thought that I would review the book overall instead of per story as there are 25 stories. I feel that reviewing each story would detract from the overall meaning of the book. Also at the end of this review I will include a small note from each of the authors of this book. Pleas share this work with everyone you know.
There comes a time when, as a reviewer (professional or indie), that you come across a book that reaches deep within your soul and grabs your heart then refuses to relinquish either. This book is filled with pages of undiluted emotion and the baring of souls that you were not expecting. You are so touched by the story or stories that you can not or I should say will not put it down. This book makes you laugh with joy, cry with pain, shake with anger, sneer with contempt and smile with triumph. Indie Chicks is that book for me. I approached this book with some trepidation as it is an anthology and I am not particularly fond of those but it is filled with 25 of the who's who of Indie Chick authors, so I figured I would give it a go.
I then started this journey without realizing that I would be so moved. These women bared their souls in one book, for the world to see and did so without looking back. The psychologist in me says that this was part of the healing process but the man in me says they need to be held and loved and told that everything will be alright. However the overall meaning is not lost and I realize that in truth this was meant as a journey of overcoming the seemingly impossible with determination, grit and self worth. Indie Chicks teaches women to pick themselves up and overcome what is thrown at them because they are worth it and can not be held down when they chose not to be. Each story runs smoothly with the others to reach this overall expression with or t=without the Indie Chicks realization. The writing in each story is flawless, raw and the emotional highs will drive you from one to the next. I recommend this to every woman on the planet, especially those in situations of despair or depression. I recommend this for every man on the planet because to love a woman, respect a woman and honor a woman does not make you gay. Besides we may all learn something.
I realize that the proceeds of this book go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation but I would prefer you bought it based on the overall expression of the book. Let us ring two bells at once, buy this book because all proceeds go to the boobs and also because women are more than boobs.
