So understandable March 16 2014

In this true story the author seeks understanding and resolution as she copes with an unexpected and devastating life trauma. She goes through all the stages of grief, and even though she tries to take the high road, she doesn't try to hide her very human emotions. It is very inspirational.
I feel I was the student and your book my teacher Sept. 4 2013

Thank you for writing an amazing, emotional & beautiful memoir, Letting Go! I feel I was the student and your book my teacher.

I lost my beautiful soul dog suddenly and unexpectedly in February of this year, in finding out that they are happy and look forward to the return to spirit brought comfort to me. Besides the unexpected loss of my husband, losing my dog was the hardest thing for me. It happens that my dog was born on the day my husband was cremated. I always sensed a part of his soul in my dog. Perhaps, it was just all in my head. I just know for sure my dog was an old friend.

I loved the read of Gibran, "The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. Verily you are suspended like scales between your joy and sorrow. Only when you are empty are you at a standstill and balanced."

I need balance to move forward on my journey.
Excellent book ! Life Changing for me ! Must Read ! June 2 2013

I decided to start reading "Letting Go" Friday evening and couldn't put it down. I just finished it this morning (Monday). Loved, loved, loved this book. Your vulnerability and journey to "Self" was thought provoking for me. When the student is ready... Your book contained so many nuggets of information that I have underlined several sections. "What may be perceived as the end of something is the start of something new in your life. What you call a beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where you start from." I will start living the "Dash," which is not where I'm living currently. "When we are fully present our ego loses its control over us." I believe your book can help so many of us going through similar situations. When you mention the mountain house I have this picture in my mind that you painted through your writing...aka the Deltec. I have learned so much from your book. Thank you so much for sharing your story. You have mad such a difference in my life !

BTW, contrary to an earlier review of this book, no I'm not friends with Nancy. This is a completely unbiased,objective review.
Special woman, special book Dec 7 2011

Enticing, enriching, enhancing and even enchanting .... this book will open your mind and take you to new heights if you let it. Funny how many parallels we all have even though we live very different and separate lives.
Ms. Kaiser's writing technique is among the best I've encountered in this genre. She is refreshingly honest, open and sincere. I have read it more than once, always finding something new and meaningful. Get your highliters ready! I would recommend this book to anyone, any age .... I hope she writes many more. Bravo !!!!!!!!!

A JOURNEY OUT OF THE ABYSS.... Dec 29 2010
By Laurel-Rain Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Poised on the threshold of her dream life, author Nancy Kaiser and her husband Bob had finally reached the beautiful mountain in North Carolina, where they would be building that dream home. And then, with just a few words from Bob, including "I never wanted this house," Nancy's dream world crashed.

For the next few months, with a divorce underway, she struggled daily with the demands of finding another home in which to live, trying to sell the mountain land, and dealing with all kinds of obstacles along the way; clinging primarily to her animal friends, she truly thought she would never climb out of the "abyss." In the "tunnel" at last, she would begin to make progress, but then another trauma (or tragedy, like the deaths of friends 600 miles away), and she would feel herself plunging back into the abyss. As each new piece of pain pierced her, like the information that her ex-husband, whom she now called "the impostor," had already begun another relationship before they separated, but had waited until that day on the mountain to tell her he wanted out. Finding out, she felt doubly betrayed.

But she found some "spiritual guides" who helped her discover her own ability to use her positive energy. And very slowly, she started the climb upward and into a more peaceful balanced place.

What was so intriguing about Letting Go: An Ordinary Woman's Extraordinary Journey of Healing & Transformation was the conversational tone of the author, who made me feel as though I were chatting with her, listening to her inspirational stories that could show the rest of us how to reclaim our own peaceful place when faced with life's challenges. I found myself cheering her on, hoping that she would finally reach that balance she sought. Some of the journey included trips to beautiful places like Maui, Sedona, and Mt. Shasta, reminding us that Nature sometimes is our best inspiration.

Kudos to this wonderful and inspirational story that deserves five stars.
