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. )

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.


She packed up her potential and all she had learned and headed out to change a few things.

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!
