Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper

This past week, I finished reading a nonfiction book titled Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper. This book is a memoir approximately 128 pages in length. 

I received my copy of Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper for FREE from Goodreads Giveaways. Below is my honest, unbiased review of Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper.

I think the entire concept of living one's truth is a powerful one. I also believe that there may come a time in one's life when things spiral out of control and we stop living our own personal truth as one struggles to gain some semblance of control of their life. 

Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper is a book in which the author shares her personal experience dealing with life events that were beyond her control and how she finally came to terms with her situation in order to start living her own truth once again.

The following is a summary of Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper from Amazon's website:
Sandy’s story is familiar, yet extraordinary. Her experience will resonate with many readers who will see themselves in her. They will recognize parts of their own life in Sandy’s struggles to find herself in the midst of crushing family obligations, professional concerns, and personal obstacles. Sandy’s strong-willed and fiercely independent nature is the driving force behind her personal reinvention and serves as an inspiration for those who join her on this journey. You may not know Sandy personally but after reading her story, you’ll soon consider her a trusted friend. Live Your Truth is precisely that: honest and true.
I personally didn't consider Sandy Cooper to be 'a trusted friend' after reading Live Your Truth as suggested in the summary above. Yes, I found reading Sandy Cooper's experience to be touching and heartfelt... But for me, reading Live Your Truth, is just another HUGE reminder for those who have left their own life's path, to do what they must to right their life and live their own personal truth.

I wish the ending of Live Your Truth had been different. I would have enjoyed learning from Ms. Cooper through her book that she actually did take her life back, how she did so, and what she's doing with her life now... Instead of reading that she simply made the decision to live her own personal truth.

I also think the summary of Ms. Cooper's book could have been written differently to incorporate more of what readers would be reading about in her book.

I am giving Live Your Truth by Sandy Cooper a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars. 

Until my next post, happy reading!
