This was a slow read for me. The author weaves back and forth through time each chapter without warning. Once I discovered that some of these chapters were previously published essays, each published separately, that made sense. Meredith Hall's writing is very itimate, like she's just having coffee with you and sharing her story.

I found the first 100 pages of this book to be painfully slow and considered abandoning it. I'm so glad I didn't! The last half of the book held me captive, unable to put it down until I had read every word. This author's story has genuinely affected the way I look at my own life, and I'm grateful for her perspective.

This is hands-down my all-time favorite book. It was a beautifully written, amazing memoir. I didn't want it to end.
