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.Read more ›
I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of uplifting testimonials (barely a tear shed, though I assure you all tears were appropriate) and stories of strength and commitment to the fine art of writing. These women amazed me, not only with their writing journeys, but also with their choice of excerpts.
The genre's encompass romance (including paranormal), contemporary fiction, fantasy, historical, mystery, suspense, and YA. I'm not going to tell you I read every excerpt - and I'm not talking a few paragraphs or a chapter for an excerpt; these excerpts are anywhere from three to six chapters). Some of the genre's did not appeal to me as a reader. Not due to the quality of writing; these are all awesome writers who know how to craft a well developed, well written story concept. If you are a consistent reader/writer, then you know that not all stories appeal to all readers, regardless of the Author's writing skills.
Several of the excerpts left me "high and dry"; gasping for breath as I turned the page and - there was no more. After a few of those cliffhanger experiences, I had to STOP myself from reading through several of the longer offerings so that I didn't feel I'd already read the novel - regardless of where it ended. (I had to close my eyes sometimes to NOT read on as I thumbed to the next Chick.)
I skimmed through many of the actual excerpts to get to the author introductions - getting sidetracked frequently by the engaging published works.Read more ›
