An awesome review….

This very awesome review showed on my Amazon page the other day. I noticed it last night. I thought you should see it. It comes from a ‘Top 500 reviewer.’ I honestly have not found out what that is yet, but, I will click the link to see. Here’s the review!!

Raw and powerful emotionApril 27, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
In 2010 Terri Louise was involved in an industrial accident. The hospital sent her home claiming she had no insurance and was only suffering from minor `back pain’.
Despite having workmen’s compensation, the heavy equipment operator was refused for over two weeks until it was discovered she had in fact broken her back and needed surgery. During this time her ex-husband sued her for custody of their son and Terri began to write.
With little money, Terri penned “Divorce, Girlfriends, Phone Calls, and Why He Makes Me Sick!” and followed it with , “Legs, Trains, and is this REALLY a Hospital?” while she was recovering.
This book is not a fancy, feel good, happy ending memoir. It’s a tough read in large part because Terri writes exactly what she feels. You won’t find carefully crafted chapters built with sophisticated sentences and paragraphs in this account of a time that must have been truly devastating for the author.
Don’t for one minute, however, think that is a criticism of either Terri Louise or her book. Legs, Trains and is this REALLY a hospital owes its power to the raw and very real emotion on every page. I have a strong suspicion that should Terri get the opportunity to work with a professional editor, the Diaries of a Damaged Soul series may find itself on several well known book lists. The danger of course, might be that it would lose a lot of what makes it so exceptionally touching. From a writer’s point of view, there are probably worse situations to be in…
Terri Louise writes with honesty and emotion. She is just as open about her own mistakes and failings as she is about anyone elses and when she could have ended up sounding (justifiably) resentful, she didn’t.
Give this a whirl – you won’t be disappointed and you will be inspired to not give up.
You all have a great day!!! I think I just might get some sleep tonight now.
–Terri Louise
