Born into deep poverty, married at thirteen, mother of six, and a grandmother by the time she was twenty-nine, Loretta Lynn went on to become one of the most prolific and influential songwriters and singers in modern country music.

Sissy Spacek did a fantastic job narrating this fun and enjoyable book. Lynn appears to be candid about her life, both good and bad, and provides a bit of insight into the world of country singing. This is a fun read.

When John O'Leary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on 100 percent of his body, O'Leary mustered an almost unimaginable amount of inner strength just to survive the ordeal. The insights he gained through this experience and the heroes who stepped into his life to help him through the journey - his family, the medical staff, and total strangers - changed his life. Now he is committed to living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same.

I loved it. It made me cry, laugh and reflect on my own life. I listened to the audible which was wonderful because the listener can hear O'Leary's emotion as he recounts his tragedy leading to beautiful moments of human kindness which led him to a life full of confidence and gratitude.
