A Deeply Personal and Honest Telling of One Woman’s Journey Navigating Life’s Challenges
This book was a fantastic read. The author tells her tragic and inspiring story with a poetic grace and honesty that keeps you enthralled. I loved experiencing her story through the astute eyes of her childhood and that the format follows the ebb and flow of memories. I found her unique and deeply personal experiences of adversity to be thoughtful and courageous in the telling. There is something in this autobiography for many readers . . . for women, for survivors, for learners, and for those seeking to better understand themselves as they face life’s many challenges.

A Journey from Tragedy to Joy
Michèle’s journey is inspiring — as I read the book (in one sitting!) I was highlighting passages and cheering “YES!” Transcending and transforming and neutralizing violence is something not every human being can do. Michèle has embodied her dauntless heroine's journey with hard won maturity, creativity and compassion.
