Format: Paperback
This is an amazing story! Apart from needing to get up to get a box of tissues, I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Julie writes in such an honest way and generously shares her triumphs, mistakes and reflections. I love the way she shares the voice of her inner critic and found that this really resonated with me. I also enjoyed how, in the opening paragraphs, Julie skillfully drew parallels between her own situation and that of the new born puppy that she was, in due course, going to acquire. Although, I had difficulty reading it at times, because of the tears, they were cleansing, cathartic tears. I am so glad I picked this up and read it.

I liked this book but a lot of sadness in it. Had it been a novel the author would probably have created some lighter chapters but this is real life.
Beware it makes you cry though!
