Has anyone read it or plan to read it?
I think I might. I was never a fan of hers, but I do have a soft spot for her being a fellow Canuck and growing up in a small nearby town. I hear in this book she touches on how her life was affected by her husbands infidelity with her friend and I would be interested to hear her take on the experience (apparently I don't hear enough of it every day here. )

Well I'll let you all know.. apparently I am feeling impatient so I just bought it on my e-reader in the 10 minutes since I made the original post

Let me know. I almost downloaded it too but wasn't sure.

I watched her interview and it was hard to watch.

So far I am impressed. I am only a few chapters in.. so still in her childhood story.

She sacraficed a great deal to tell her story and be so open. And you can tell it wasn't easy for her. I am liking the book and really awed by her.

what I really hope is that I get my nook color and then download it but a girl can't be too picky....

I'll settle for the watch I want and then buy the hardcover monday

I saw a little bit of her on Oprah the other day. I was moved by her story of infidelity and some of the excerpts she read. All of us here can relate to those feelings. Not sure I can buy the book. It might just be too much.

Her story is so similar to yours, KD.

Let us know what you think.

I want to read it but don't have any money to spare (thank you rising costs of college) is it available as a LendMe book for nooks?

I read this book. I have always liked Shania Twain's music but I have a new appreciation for her.

This book was written in a converstational tone, and seems so genuine. She truly did have a difficult childhood. And she did tell about some of the story of her husband's A with her friend. She is very generous in not really bad mouthing her XH, or even the "friend" up to a point. I love the part where another friend gets her to say it...just say it...that Marie-Ann is a ...(the C word). I hope somehow, some way that other woman knows about that part of the book.

Even if you don't like Country music, if you do like inspiring stories, this is something I highly recommend.

She takes every negative situation in her life and somehow turns it into positive (eventually...she goes through some very painful stages along the way).

I won't give away the whole book, but try to picture a woman who is now very rich and successful, she grew up extremely poor, and when she was 17 years old, she managed crews of men in the "Bush" for a tree planting business. They more or less camped out and didn't take showers for weeks at a time. She actually enjoyed that type of living at the time!
