    From the author of The Gift of an Ordinary Day, this intimate memoir of loss, self-discovery, and growth will resonate deeply with any woman who has ever mourned the passage of time, questioned her own purpose, or wondered, "Do I have what it takes to create something new in my life?" With the candor and warmth that have endeared her to readers, Kenison reflects on the inevitable changes wrought by time: the death of a dear friend, children leaving home, recognition of her own physical vulnerability, and surprising shifts in her marriage.

    If you could sum up Magical Journey in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, honest, lovely


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Katrina's reading of her story and the depth in which she plumbs the hard parts of being a woman, aging gracefully and soaring through this wild, wonderful journey of life.


    Have you listened to any of Katrina Kenison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to her work, but have read everything else and watched the video of her reading from "Gift of an Ordinary Day"


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had lots of tears with this book, tears of joy, tears of remembering, tears of empathy, tears of sorrow, tears of sharing.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED this book. I enjoyed the reading by Katrina, I savored every minute I listened and I have been telling all my friends about it, imploring them to get either the book or the audio version. It is one I will listen to again and again. By the end of the book I felt like she and I could be friends. I especially loved the parts where she talks about Northampton, MA...the town which has been my home for most of the past thirty years.Don't miss this wonderful book. I especially think it would be great for women in their forties and fifties and their partners.

  • The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    What did you love best about The Gifts of Imperfection?

    The ideas and how they make so much sense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gifts of Imperfection?

    I have listened many times so it is all memorable


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Sometimes the voice sounds speeded up. That was annoying


    What did you learn from The Gifts of Imperfection that you would use in your daily life?

    Too much to list. It was all very timely and significant to my life right now


    Any additional comments?

    I'm recommending this book/audiobook to all the people I know who might find it valuable.
