When I read the other reviews, I was excited to purchase and read this book. I wanted to read about personal life-changing events and how women dealt with them. I was sadly disappointed.
Each story, was only a couple of pages long and described only one event in their lives; at times, that one event was over-described and drawn out. Some stories could have easily been described on one page.
I was expecting to read a chapter from each woman, and get a glimpse into their lives: their struggles, their process of rebuilding, and what they have ultimately achieved. I wanted to get to know the women. I wanted to feel a connection to them. I wanted to feel a desire/need for them to overcome their struggles. This book did none of this.

Another Empowering Read from Linda Joy!Reviewed in the United States on September 27, 2011
Some of these stories had me in tears yet at the same time provided a clear reminder of just what the human spirit is capable of overcoming. Read this book and you too will be reminded of what's on the other side of embracing authenticity. A beautiful gift for yourself and for any woman in your life!

I am overwhelmed with gratitude to Linda Joy and the community of strong minded women she has introduced me to. Through her teleseminars, "Aspire" and now "Embracing Your Authentic Self" I have traveled a long way down a dark road in a very short period of time. Despite outward appearances, my goals and dreams are well within reach. Much of the credit for the tremendous shift I have experienced must be given to the inspiration and courage these women radiate. Embracing Your Authentic Self is part of my personal tool box, a necessity for moments of doubt and backsliding. Thank you for dropping another pebble in the pond.

"ALL THINGS NUMINOUS"Reviewed in the United States on September 28, 2011
Brave women share their spiritual evolution in this inspiring collaboration of hearts. As one who has worked alongside several of these transformative souls, I add my recognition to the genuine nature of their contribution. I give thanks that the Universe saw fit to gather their special stories into one moving vessel. This is a book whose time has come, as Now is the moment for each of these stars to burn brightly and to cast the light of individual brilliance upon the world scene. Something quite numinous results as their collective fire sets the reader's soul aflame with aspiration. The voice of authenticity becomes the clarion call to embrace the Light. Bravo!
