Sue writes with incredible depth and vulnerability, giving us a soulful story of an extraordinary journey. Metamorphosis is a must read for any woman looking toembrace her own power and peace. Amy Ahlers, Bestselling Author of Reform Your Inner Mean Girl
Writing with transparency, Sue has broached sensitive topicsin law enforcement; from classism between civilian and commissioned personnel, the expectation to assist others to the detriment of your own personal health; to the perceived negative stigma attached to seeking out counseling. Metamorphosis exposes the real need for life/work balance and the fallacy that asking for help is a sign of weakness. Lieutenant Ron Leonard, 29 year Colorado Peace Officer
Truly powerful memoirs have the ability to hold up asqueaky-clean, sparkling mirror in which you can gaze upon your own journey. I can wholly see my reflection in Sue's story, and her healing in Metamorphosis became my own. Melanie Bates, Book Shaman and Co-Author of 10 Life Skills Never Taught But Absolutely Essential To Happy Living
Sue's story is a wonderful example of finding yourself after you have tried to do and be everything for love! Having lost yourself and coming full circle to the oneness of the soul in the universe is an incredible journey. Diana Larson

What I didn't relate to was the feeling of being invisible. I accept that many of my women friends and colleagues have explicitly told me that they have emerged from a past of feeling invisible. These women that I now "run with" are very powerful, having transformed like Sue Relihan has -- each in their own journey of #metamorphosis. I resonate strongly with the beautiful journey of reclaiming personal power, of empowering others to do so, as well, and for being transparent and vulnerable and inclusive in this journey.
Brava, Miss Sue Relihan! Bravo for your courage! Bravo for giving hope and inspiration to others and illuminating a clear choice for blossoming and living life to its absolute fullest on your own terms.
I recommend this book if you are already solidly on your path to self-empowerment.
I recommend this book if you are at wits end and feel ready to snap or spiral down further into insanity and stress -- its a lifeline, for sure.
I recommend this book if you have a loved one in your life who has either bafflingly overcome things in their life that you have not grappled with, or who is struggling with feeling inadequate or invisible.
This book is for almost everyone.
For anyone who has ever struggled with acceptance and invisibility (and haven’t we all in some way?), you’ll find this book to be relatable, powerful and healing.
This book is honest, heart-felt and easy to read. I definitely recommend it.
I felt encouraged and inspired after reading her words and extremely honored to get a glimpse at the inside of someone else's struggles in such a real way. I read another review that said it felt like reading her journal, and I agree. There was a raw vulnerability to this book that made it feel sacred. But while it was relatable and personal, it was also polished and well-written
As for the themes addressed in her story, we can all relate in some way to this notion of settling in our lives and what we are willing to accept as "enough" for the worthiness we feel. This was a beautifully woven story of transformation and seeing one's self in a new way, and I highly recommend it as a well-paced, insightful read that will hit an emotional cord in everyone.
