    Inspirational!

    I couldnt help but to feel a kinship with Abby as I read her incredible story of love and loss. Sadly, many never experience true love but it was amazing to read her love story. It made me appreciate my own love and my amazing son more than ever. I could also identify with her on her weight loss journey. I was on this same path at nearly the same time. I, like Abby, lost 100 pounds and completely appreciate life in a whole new way. I wish Abby a life of love and joy along with the amazing memories of her wonderful husband and two sweet babies.

    Such a geniun person

    I remember seeing Abby on The Biggest Loser. She was such a wonderful, honest person on the show. It is so nice to see that she has come through this and turned her life around. Most of us would not have been that brave. Good luck to you Abby!

    No perfect words to say

    This book is a true inspiration to me. When i read "being a christian doesnt mean life will be easy and it could possibly be harder" (almost quoted exactly) read into me deeply. I've questioned and wondered almost daily how God could let life constantly feed me severe happenings and complete heart devastation way more times than normal. This story helps me see that happiness is still in the midst during the worst times of our lives if we just reach for it and grab it. Thank you Abbey for putting your world on paper, which is so very hard to do.

    A beautiful story - so uplifting!

    This book has truly touched my life - Abby Rike - one of the strongest women I have ever heard about - truly amazing. A must read - you'll cry, you'll laugh, and you'll be uplifted through a beautiful faith when you are finished. Whether you are a religious person or not - you truly will feel the "power" when finished with reading this heart-touching story.

    Highly Recommend!!!

    If you want to be inspired, read this. If you want to witness pure child-like faith, read this. If you want a true example of 'hope in the darkest hour', read this. Be prepared to have your life changed, it did mine in the very best way. I am blessed because of Abby Rike.

    This book is beyond good , it is EXCEPTIONAL

    Abby's story is one that will touch the core of your very being. It is not just a book it is a message to LIVE life and not merely survive. Not many people can write about such a loss and dark place and not make it all about them selves or a woe is me plea, Abby does not once make you feel sorry for her, in actuality she motivates you to cherish life, cherish people, and to be the best you can be. IF after reading this book you do not hug your children tighter each night, top feeling sorry for your circumstances and take the steps to choose a better life and make the things that matter a priority, then you probably don't have a pulse! YOU will WANT to give this book to your friends, your family, people you see on the street who just need hope. I am forever changed and will always think of how precious life is in every moment.
