Honest and Heartwarming

This is one of the most honest and heartwarming books I've ever read.

In the hours that I was immersed in Never Alone, I had the feeling that I was spending quality time with a friend. Richly detailed recollections invited me into vibrant conversations and spaces that Iris shared with her parents, siblings, grandparents, aunt's, uncles, husband and son, and friends. Their lovable personalities remind me of my own, never alone, family and inspire me to proudly claim my relatives more boldly than ever before.

I especially loved the chapters in which Iris allows charming glimpses into her keen perceptions as a young child, the little triumphant moments, and easy playtime with siblings, friends, and simpler toys. From her youngest years, Iris gravitated to the kitchen where her Grandma Leah Jean imparted sound advice along with lessons in cooking. She talks freely about her early spiritual curiosity, being raised in an interfaith family, and her journey to a deeply affirmed trust in God.

For much of Iris's life, there were significant health challenges that didn't reveal an accurate diagnosis until many years later. She made no time for pity and kept moving forward on a unique trail to the accomplished woman who wrote this book. She possesses innate courage to move beyond insecurities and doubts, and engages everyone she meets with sincerity and openness.

There is wisdom in this book. With earned compassionate insight, Iris imparts the significance of her faith, her family, and her friendships. Whether immediate or somewhat later - - unbreakable fortitude, unfaltering acceptance, unwavering commitment, and unconditional love are the sturdy threads that weave her family's tight bond. I laughed a lot, I cried a little bit, and couldn’t pull myself away from this endearing family. Long after the last page, Iris Fisher Smith's memoir is still with me.

Never Alone is a wonderful autobiography that you won't want to put down. This is a book that feeds the soul. Don't wait to receive its offerings of assurance and inspiration.
