Publisher's Summary

Is it the job you hate but need in order to pay the rent? Is it that relationship that you gave your all to only to end up with a broken heart...again? Perhaps it's your children, a family member, or a life-long friend doing you in, dragging you down, pushing you to the brink. If you are an honorary member of the Black Woman's Suffering Society, you have probably been told that it's all your fault. Or that struggling and suffering is your lot in life. Iyanla Vanzant says, "No!" Life is an act of faith and suffering is optional! Those everyday challenges, obstacles, and dilemmas are what Iyanla calls "valleys". As bad as they may seem, there is a purpose or, as Iyanla says, "There is so much value in the valley".

If you've ever been disappointed, betrayed, rejected, abandoned, or just plain old scared to let go, then you've been or may still be in a valley. Iyanla knows; she's been there, and on a bad day, she's still there, but now she shares the way out with you.

    "In your face truth that cannot be denied!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes..Iyanla speaks truths that many black women are afraid to face.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Iyanla tells it like it is...no holds barred!!


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

    By the end of the book I understood that the universe does not create valleys to harm you. Valleys assist you in becoming your "best self"


    Any additional comments?

    Powerful read!!

    "I am a Caucasian woman and GAINED SO MUCH! XXOO"

    Even though I am not a black woman I have been a fan of Ms. Vanzant for many years. This book shall be my GO TO for direction, sanity and comfort for years to come. I respect Iyanla deeply for her depth of wisdom and skill in sharing it with all of US in a way that hits the heart!

    "absolute must have in your audiobook Library"

    what I like about this book is every black woman can relate to it. We have all been in the valley out some point in our lives. The author is poignant in each topic and how we can identify where we are in our life. This book is a must-have in the black woman's Library.

    "this was just what I needed to get things going"

    I'm so pleased that I got this book. it put things in perspective. the struggles that black women have can be a little different from those of other women. it's much harder for us to find inspirational and social tools due to the diversity of our issues.

    "Excellent but short"

    i love all of Iyanla's books, i just wish this was not an abridged version. Not sure why that's the case if the book is full version.
