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!

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!
