A charming book for understanding difficult times

This is a charming book for helping to understand the difficult times everyone experiences. Lesser has clearly suffered and reached the sweet place of understanding the gift(s) that come through trying times.

    Draw inspiration from this book and others...

    Difficult times always provide us an opportunity to explore our own character and value system.

    Things to take away...

    But books at times is a little new-agey. It's worth picking up and reading.

    Pretty basic

    I found the book started out strong and then settled into "average." I expecte more indepths stories illustrating how others came through their difficult times. However, the majority of the book is the author's detailed account of her story.
