REVIEWS for previous edition...
"As I've journeyed through life, one lesson I've learned is that every person in my life who has inspired me has gone through some sort of life altering event. Think about that for a minute and I challenge you to find someone who has not. Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Oprah, Joseph in the Bible, the list goes on. The reality is that as harsh as it may seem at the time, without that hardship to mold and transform you, you would not have grown as greatly as you did in the end. Their stories have a common thread. One of humbleness, perseverance, a will to succeed, and hope. Karen's story is no exception. I add her to the list of greats who have inspired me. You need to read her story. You won't regret it!" -Dan Speltz, Lulu website
"I am rarely one to find myself tearing while reading a book however this read was one of those times. Karen's story gripped me. It is a heart wrenching, yet inspiring, tale of a woman who surpassed all odds. Her story will inspire and motivate you. This is definitely won of those tales you don't want to miss! I am adding it to my Christmas gift list for friends this year. I absolutely loved it!" -Samantha Ranae Norris, from Lulu website
"Karen's story will move and inspire you. If you are looking to read about an incredible journey of tenacity and the will of a spirit to live and succeed, you need to read her story. It will reinvigorate you on life. Why can a whale lift it's own body out of the water yet a single human cannot? Well I've heard it said because no one told it, it can't. Despite being told by many that she couldn't, Karen DID -- I say its because she never gave up or accepted a set of cards she couldn't live with. Her journey will touch you -- it is one that should not be missed. Highly recommend!" -Jennifer Dunn, from Lulu website
"Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it. OPRAH. Oprah says it best and I truly believe she had you in mind. The way you keep pressing on in life despite your setbacks is truly a miracle. I read your book cover to cover in one sitting. I could not put it down! You truly are an inspiration for anyone suffering from any ailment. Thank you for informing us and writing such a real account of the trials, setbacks, and then uphill battles that you encountered during a desperate time to just survive in your life. You are an incredible woman and give hope to us all! Thank you..." -Dale M, from Lulu website
