She honors the complexity of our modernlives, tells us it's okay to be human, to ask for help, but also reminds us howgreat it feels to do good in the world. Carry On, Warrior is animportant portrait of contemporary womanhood, one that encourages us to takechances and love big."--Megan Mayhew Bergman, author of Almost Famous Women

I can't stop thinking about this book."--BrenΓ© Brown, Ph.D. "New York Times bestselling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Tra "

You leave refreshed, renewed, and reminded that we aren't alone in this. Not even a little.It isn't the kind of book you put down and say "oh, that was good." It's the kind of book you put down, then go to the store and buy three more copies because you know you are going to run into someone who needs them."--Examiner.com
