This was a very interesting, personal story of the road to healing. I like that it was not a “do this and you will be cured” book as I find those to be unrealistic. I found this book like having a really long, fascinating conversation with a friend. I was touched by the relationships and the honesty in the book. I am really glad I listened to it.
