Hello, Dear Bloggites. 🙂 Two reviews in one day…I am on a roll. This book review was at the request of the Author, Rebecca Rose, via an email from Amazon.com. As you all know, I love to read and I love to support new, up-and-coming authors. I gladly accepted this request and it took me a bit longer than planned before I could read this book. Life, that ol’ bugger, demanded my focus and I am power reading all the books I have on my list now.
This review is on the non-fiction book, It’ll Be Fine, A True Story. This book is similar to an autobiography/memoir, but is so much more. This book was about an AMAZING Love Story of two hearts, recognizing their counter-point, yearning to unite as one. Not only is this a wonderful love story, it is a wonderful story of a woman working on reaching the next level of her.
The story is about a girl, trudging through life, living the materialistic world of “being the best” and “making the most” at her job yet failing at finding the balance of life and work. Throughout the book, the reader is taken on the journey that the author herself lived. Unlike most autobiographies/memoirs, this book read like a fictional love story that has all the elements of a wonderful book: love, challenges, disappointments, loss, and hope.
It is a factual story about finding inner peace and the struggle that happens to some before inner peace is found. The people in the novel are relatable for any reader and the story itself gives the reader hope and encouragement for their life and the situations they are facing. The format of the story was a timeline format so you do not have the bouncing back and forth of times like so many books are written today. The author did not sugar-coat anything about herself or the other people involved in the story. She literally has held her arms out, hands open, saying, “This is me, all my ugly and beauty, here for you to witness. Be gentle.”
Every writer puts something of themselves in every story they share with the world; this makes them very vulnerable. Writing about a real life event in her life, Rebecca Rose, willingly exposed more of herself than that of a fiction writer. The author is a very brave person to write about something so raw and life changing and I applaud her for it. Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing your life with me and the rest of the world. 🙂
