Publisher's Summary

Born Eilleen Regina Edwards in 1965 in rural Canada, Shania Twain has lived a life rife with triumph and tragedy. By the time she was two, her parents had divorced, and by early childhood, her family of seven was often without food, at times living in a filthy one-bedroom apartment. But when her mother and stepfather were tragically killed in an automobile accident when she was 22, Shania knew that the only way to lift her family out of poverty was to use her God-given singing talent. At an age when most young people have only themselves to think about, Shania moved her entire family to a nearby resort where she began performing, supporting her younger brothers and sisters.
In riveting and often heartbreaking prose, Shania takes the listener back to these pivotal moments, revealing the difficulties she and her family faced. Shania writes of being discovered, time spent performing in Nashville, and her sudden, dramatic rise to stardom. She also spares no details about her recent personal struggles and heartbreaks - struggles she's never discussed publicly. This remarkable book is the story of a brave, honest, entirely genuine woman who faced odds most people never experience, yet has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations.

Disappointing

Shania's life has been hard for the most part and really good at times. The underlying theme here in her book is that she doesn't think people are responsible for their actions. I wish Shania much love on her journey. I do feel this book might be helpful to others are starting their journey to healing past wounds.

Powerful life Journey

This story makes me appreciate life more. I never grew up with money and I am from the east coast of Canada so I could relate in many ways some of the struggles of this book. Shania is a person I now look up to, who has suvivored so many things showing us how if we move forward we can preserve. I laughed, I cried, I felt heart ache, and sympathy while reading this book. I am now a life coach in the pusiut of serving all others and making a difference in the lives of people all over the world. Thank you for sharing your amazing life journey with the world.
