Read by the Author!
Starting with a difficult experience with the medical community and hospital staff, you really wouldn't expect to enjoy this book or be prepared to find it giggling insanely funny. But it is. When it moves on to a beloved pet in her last days, you think that it would be maudlin. But it most certainly not. This book is the product of the author's journaling through some tough times, lessons learned and shared, chronicles of friendship, and the place that a faith needs to hold in one's life. Just because she is a New Yorker and a professional entertainer, don't think that you can't relate, or learn something, or laugh out loud!
The audiobook is read by the author, and that makes it super wonderful.

This is a great book. Personally, I preferred Raving Violet (that is the only reason that this got 4*), but this is most definitely still worth a read!
Valerie Gilbert's work is far from boring and you can feel her emotions when she speaks - both the happiness and the heart-wrenching pain (this is the reason I love an author reading their own book). You might not realise it, but this book has some great humour too! Add this to a unique view of life makes this a well rounded, wonderful and engaging book.
I don't want to ruin the stories for you, hence why they haven't been mentioned... but trust me, they're well worth listening to.
Listen and enjoy!!!
