HASH(0x9bc16648) out of 5 stars Reviewed for Midwest Book Review Feb. 2 2009
By Christy Tillery French - Published on
Format: Paperback
With five short words ("I never wanted this house"), Nancy Kaiser's world came to a screeching halt. Nancy and her husband Bob had retired to North Carolina, where they planned to build their dream home on a mountain they chose as their special place. Before the house was finished, Bob said these words to Nancy, and from that point on, her world tilted and her life became off-balance. Alone, six hundred miles from family and friends, nothing seemed to go right for Nancy. On her own, she had to face the deaths of dear friends and beloved animal companions, as well as problems which kept cropping up with the house she moved into, all while dealing with the trauma of divorcing her husband.

Although the title describes Nancy as an "ordinary woman", perhaps a more appropriate nomenclature would be an exceptional person in tune with nature who not only understands the connection between animals and humans but is able to communicate with animals. A woman dedicated to finding her center through spiritual and cerebral means, pitting ego against soul, learning to love herself, trust her decisions, and focus on the positive instead of the negative. This outstanding book leads the reader through Nancy's soul-searching journey of transformation, from a woman filled with anger and rage and negativity to one who is at peace with herself and her feelings and has learned to let go of the things she cannot control. The reader will feel Nancy's pain as she struggles and rejoice with her as she begins to progress toward her life's goal. The lessons learned in this book are of great significance and will gift the reader with a better understanding of "self". Highly recommended.

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.

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.

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 !!!!!!!!!

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.
