Very frustrating to try to read
This author spends her time writing the book backwards. You read a chapter that’s followed by a chapter about a year earlier, followed by a chapter from 2 months earlier, followed by a chapter 8 months earlier. Extremely frustrating trying to read a backward book. If this author has a story to tell, just tell it. All of the skipping around is unnecessary & difficult to follow. I finally gave up at chapter 10. Do not waste your time or money on this book.
