What I'm Reading: One Call Away

I just finished reading One Call Away by Brenda Warner, wife of Kurt Warner. I got it in the mail a week ago and read it completely in one sitting. Took me about three hours. I literally could not put this book down, it was that great. This book is a memoir by Brenda Warner of her life from birth till now. Her story accounts from the good and hard times life offers going through in great personal detail, from growing up on a farm with her parents, serving in the military, marrying, having a son with Epilepsy, divorcing, losing her parents in a Tornado and re-marrying Kurt Warner. 

I really identified in the beginning of her story when her baby son was experiencing seizures. It made me realize from a parents perspective, how scary seizures are. When I experience them, I don't realize what it looks like from the outside. I just know it makes me feel completely yucky on the inside. It also made me identify with my own epilepsy and questions I have about the possibility of ever wanting kids in the future.  

When I had the opportunity to review this book, I did not have a clue who Brenda Warner was and I probably wouldn't have purchased this book at the book store, not because it wasn't good, but because I didn't know who she was.. After reading this book, I would completely recommend this book! It is awesome!! 

She is a real person, who has gone through many struggles we can all identify with. Her story is enriching, uplifting and encouraging. She hasn't always been a millionaire and the fame has a price tag. 

This book was provided through book sneeze. This is my honest review.
