The reader experiences the loneliness of the little girl, the insecurities of the young woman, and celebrates the joys of the transformational power and strength of self-knowledge, love and gratitude.
Vivianne faced many challenges throughout her life, and readers get a glimpse into her personal observations on how she survived the tough times by building resilience, which enabled her to evolve and grow as a human being. Black and white photographs are strategically placed in the story and give readers a personal connection to this wonderful and heartfelt autobiography. Vivianne’s journey from childhood through adulthood and the ways that she approached crises in her life will hit home with readers in a very personal way. From Rubble to Champagne is a worthwhile book to read that will touch readers’ hearts as they follow along on Vivianne’s journey as she began her life as a poverty-stricken German immigrant and through perseverance, a chance meeting with a stranger, family love, and friendship now lives a happy and fulfilled life as a United States citizen. At the end of the story are lined pages for readers to write down anything that might have resonated with them.
I enjoyed the historical perspective of the different times (and places) in the past that Ms. Knebel experienced first-hand. However, the true inspiration came as the author discussed how she learned and grew from her experiences, and how she maintained a (mostly) positive attitude. There are also some valuable lessons about how to nurture an internal attitude of gratitude.
I appreciate the author sharing some of the most personal aspects of her life with us, her readers. Self-help books are great, but I personally gain more from an author who is willing to open up and share true-life experiences. Ms. Knebel's generosity in this regard will no doubt be meaningful for many future readers.
