Publisher's Summary

Born Eilleen Regina Edwards in 1965 in rural Canada, Shania Twain has lived a life rife with triumph and tragedy. By the time she was two, her parents had divorced, and by early childhood, her family of seven was often without food, at times living in a filthy one-bedroom apartment. But when her mother and stepfather were tragically killed in an automobile accident when she was 22, Shania knew that the only way to lift her family out of poverty was to use her God-given singing talent. At an age when most young people have only themselves to think about, Shania moved her entire family to a nearby resort where she began performing, supporting her younger brothers and sisters.

In riveting and often heartbreaking prose, Shania takes the listener back to these pivotal moments, revealing the difficulties she and her family faced. Shania writes of being discovered, time spent performing in Nashville, and her sudden, dramatic rise to stardom. She also spares no details about her recent personal struggles and heartbreaks - struggles she's never discussed publicly. This remarkable book is the story of a brave, honest, entirely genuine woman who faced odds most people never experience, yet has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations.

    "Disappointing"

    Shania's life has been hard for the most part and really good at times. The underlying theme here in her book is that she doesn't think people are responsible for their actions. I wish Shania much love on her journey. I do feel this book might be helpful to others are starting their journey to healing past wounds.

    "Less Expectation=Less Disappointment"

    I appreciated her candidness without the quirky. I really got the sense that she was genuinely telling her entire story while emphasizing her feelings through all the hardships and triumphs. Amazing!

    Story
    "A great glimpse into the not so charmed celeb life"
    Where does From This Moment On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say as far as autobiographical books go, this one is very close to the top. I already loved Shania the singer, but to learn for about Eilleen, the fierce, brave and kind woman was really a treat. Her life story and her will to overcome the obstacles she faced are both truly inspirational.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    From This Moment On, of course! There is no better title.


    Any additional comments?

    My only disappointment with this book was that Shania didn't read the entire book. While Scott was a fine narrator, I really would have preferred to hear Shania tell her entire story, instead of just two small audio clips in the beginning and end.

    "Powerful life Journey "

    This story makes me appreciate life more. I never grew up with money and I am from the east coast of Canada so I could relate in many ways some of the struggles of this book. Shania is a person I now look up to, who has suvivored so many things showing us how if we move forward we can preserve. I laughed, I cried, I felt heart ache, and sympathy while reading this book. I am now a life coach in the pusiut of serving all others and making a difference in the lives of people all over the world. Thank you for sharing your amazing life journey with the world.

    Story
    "Beautiful story of hardship, endurance, and family"
    Where does From This Moment On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank this book very highly, it almost reads like a novel yet the truth can be stranger than fiction, and more inspiring.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of From This Moment On?

    The sheer triumph of determination forged in a thirteen year old girl who finally has had enough. She by force of nature pulls her mother from her depressed bed and leaves the world of abuse and sadness which had plagued her little family for so many years. This was the turning point, and it was accomplished by a small, adolescent girl against all odds.
    This was the moment when the audience stands and cheers.


    What does Shania Twain and Sherie Rene Scott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Steven King said that audiobooks give us the original intent of storytelling. We forget that the printed word was created as a substitute, a second hand artificial way of communicating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love bios, they give you a glimpse into worlds you would never have known otherwise. I was "moved" so many times in this book it would be impossible to pick just one thing. When children endure and then thrive it is always epic. It is the essence of our human existence this maternal/paternal drive found within the youngest.

    We had some young chicks once, and one was perhaps two weeks old and the other a few days. But the younger would struggle to get under the wing of the older and the older would act a protector to a degree. This is what our dna does.

    The saddest example is self love, when there is no other "chick". As in the case of orphan babies rocking their own cribs which I've heard stories of from Russian nurseries.

    It is both sad but also the blazing hope of victory within us that we can be our own parents when necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    I love bios, they give you a glimpse into worlds you would never have known otherwise. Shania's world is amazing, amazingly told, and beautifully concluded. I highly recommend this audio book.

    Story
    "I wished Shania had narrated the book herself."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not time well spent. Shania gives the impression she is the only person to ever have been cheated on in marriage. Best friends cheat with spouses all the time. I didn't learn anything new about her except that she seemed to protect her ex-husband by not saying how she felt about his part in the cheating, she constantly raged about the woman whom he cheated with. I felt that she was not facing up to reality by placing so much focus on the other woman and not sharing blame equally between the two. But, I understand she has suffered a great deal of pain and the story is to help her work through the pain the best way she can.


    Would you recommend From This Moment On to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I found the narrator's voice annoying and that didn't help at all considering the repetative content of the book.


    What three words best describe Shania Twain and Sherie Rene Scott ’s voice?

    Love Shania's voice and I disliked Sherie's annoying, whinny voice .


    Do you think From This Moment On needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No!
