Product Description

About the Author

A long time ago, on a warm summer day I was born in Galesburg. Later while still very young, I was moved by my parents (without even asking!) to Quincy. Bouncing from parent to parent, and house to house until at 16 I was given a broader tour of the state courtesy of foster care. At 18, I voluntarily left for Phoenix with a high school friend. For three years I lived there and had many adventures, before once again returning to Quincy. After getting my life once again settled, I went to college and earned an Associate of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Art. Over the years, I have held many jobs, but never quite found the right one. I've written poetry and short stories on a variety of subjects from raising children to finance for online publication. Finally, in 2013, after much urging from my friends for years, I sat down one day and started writing about my life. I am the mother of five children, all grown and one, except my youngest. Which I am sure is trying to drive me mad (as all teenagers do) and have plans to write another book in the future about their childhood, much to their anticipated dismay. I currently live in my hometown, in the house I love, and at the center of the chaos I enjoy so much. I'm often surrounded by my children, my loves, friends and the strays (both two legged and four) I take in. Even now, I continue to seek out new adventures, misadventures and new mistakes to fill the pages of my next book, laughing as I go.

Welcome to the biography of Lisa Orban, told in short stories as opposed to ongoing chapters, showing the true strength of humans and how humour can make anything better!

“So, this is my life, for better or for worse”.

I loved the honest and frank introduction to this book, I felt that I instantly liked Lisa and this helped to get into the right frame of mind when reading.

It is inspirational how much one person can go through in their life. At times I felt very angry for Lisa, sometimes I laughed with (and at) the stories and a big chunk I just felt sad for the things Lisa has had to go through. However, if this book teaches nothing else, it is that no matter what someone does to you, forgiveness can still be given (and this is no means a “sad” book, it could be, but Lisa hasn't allowed this to happen).

“The day of my birthday, I was released from foster care”.

Funny (very funny, thank goodness Lisa has this approach to life!), chaotic, sad, emotive and dramatic, just a few words to describe this roller-coaster of life being told.

I must add I particularly love the “Sister for Sale” chapter and my heart was racing for Lisa during the chapter about the riot!

“Nothing in this life would be the same again”.

There are also lovely illustrations dotted throughout this book which I also really liked. All in all, a very good book. A big thank you to @Booktasters and Lisa Orban for a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I am always honest when reviewing books and I would recommend this book to you.

It’ll Feel Better when it Quits Hurting by Lisa Orban is such an inspirational book that will make you laugh while she to patiently teaching her audience how much stronger you will become by forgiving those who have wronged you. She went through much heartache, but her main focus was on the silly and fun times she had that cushioned those difficult periods of her life.
Each chapter in Lisa’s life has short stories that make this book easy to read. My favorite stories that had me laughing to tears were when she started sleep walking because of stress. Everyone though their house was “haunted” because they didn’t know how things were being moved around, not even Lisa. Another was when she arrived to her Prom in a squad car.
Lisa made the statement often that she was “a broken vase held together with Elmer’s glue”. I think her story would not be complete without her telling about her abusive husband. Her story is fun enough to keep you reading, while sucker-punching you with her strength and resolve at the end. Excellent book to give to a friend you may be concerned about abuse but too afraid to bring up the subject.
