“Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told.” – Cheryl Strayed

If you need a great summer book, we highly recommend you pick-up or download a copy of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild. It is described as, “A powerful, blazingly honest memoir: the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe – and built her back up again.” You will be inspired… we promise.

“Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.” This page turner does not disappoint.

While the book is currently on Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, we have reader Catherine M. to thank for turning us on to Wild first.
