Customer Reviews

This memoir is thought-provoking, sad, and uplifting at the same time. I don't know how the author managed it but she dug deep within her soul to write the story. This book will challenge stereotypes and reveal what we could, as a society do to help children who were subtly abused as children. Her family life was dysfunctional, but she was strong even though she didn't know it. The author faced all the negative experiences in her life with a stoic resolve. The book is easy to read because the author is a fluid writer but sometimes it's difficult to read, due to the continuous suffering but that is to be expected I guess. Life is filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly. What permeates through her book were the quotes which added to the story she was telling. I can go on and on and I hope when people read this woman’s story, they’ll see a mirror of themselves, and know that there is hope. A worthy book! I’ll read it again.

I really didn’t expect it, but this book is definitely my book of the year so far. The writing is beautiful and heartfelt, and it has such a strong message of hope and love. Be under no illusion though, there are very dark moments throughout Mary Anne’s life and some of it is hard to read. But it’s how she triumphs over these adversities which is, for me, truly remarkable. To cope with child abuse, parental alcoholism and suicide, mental abuse and almost dying from complications from a medical procedure – and then still finding love, happiness and a fulfilled life is a testament to Mary Anne’s strength of character. So, if you, your family or friends have ever faced dark moments or tragedy, this book offers real glimpses of light, hope and the possibility of a better future. As the author says herself, “knowing yourself changes everything”. I couldn’t agree more. The Grace of a Nightingale . . . . I love this book!
