Author’s voice-loud and clear!

How does one family cope with such a tragedy? I don’t have all the answers, but in my mind, there is no question that faith, hope , courage and especially a “Mother’s Love” is making the impossible possible. Lisa’s, inspirational “journey” is shared with the reader in a hard-hitting, gripping- totally honest fashion. Lisa’s first book is sans pedantic style; instead, she inspires the reader in a heartfelt and a brilliantly blunt way. Her author’s voice is loud and clear! I would read three or four chapters:

I would feel it was best to get off the “Mood Swing” – wait another day to open the book and allow my emotions to reach the sky and beyond- again. We can sermonize and formally try to educate people in regards to the dangers of driving and drinking- a better way- read the book.

Lisa is such an inspiring mother. To be able to handle all the curve balls life has given her, she still finds to be positive in every situation. This life story is an eye opener for anyone who uses or abuses drugs and alcohol, it lets you know what you can do to someone’s family in an instant. Thank you Lisa for sharing your life story with us! If it changes at least one persons decision about drinking and driving, you have saved another family so thank you!

This book is written from the heart and in total transparency. … It is raw and real and … For lack of a better term … Wow. I can’t even fathom going through what this family has gone through and yet having met them and met Kyle … I know that there are miracles afoot … Thank you for opening your family up to us … I think this book not only invites us into their sorrow, but also let’s us in on their joy too … But mostly makes us stop and see that Kyle can inspire us all!

Finished this book in two days! It is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. This family went through Hell and the punishment for the drunk driver was appalling! This story needs to be told in every drivers ed class. I’ll be donating my copy after it makes the rounds in my family. I have met Lisa and can tell you she is an inspiration and a wonderful person! I hope to meet her children one day, and through her story I expect them to be awesome and inspirational as well. Thank you all for your willingness to share such a horrible tragedy. Thank you Lisa for proving once again that a mother’s love for her children can work miracles!

“A MOTHER’S JOURNEY THROUGH FAITH, HOPE AND COURAGE” This book is about how a family survived a tremendous tragedy and how their mother did everything she could to ensure her children had everything they needed since that heart breaking day November 1, 1997! This book is sure to make you think twice before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle when intoxicated and under the influence of illegal drugs! This book takes you on a roller coaster ride of events that will bring you to tears, and inspire everyone who reads it! This book should be read by everyone who still believes in miracles as well as those who don’t. It will tug at your heartstrings and will make it nearly impossible to put down!

Lisa I just finished your book, it was great and you and your family should be an inspiration to all of us. My heart broke to read what you all had to go through because someone made such a bad decision to get behind the wheel while using drugs and alcohol. You are an amazing mother. Love Joyce

I just finished reading Lisa Brodeur’s book and I loved it! I could not put it down once I started to read it! So much emotion ran through me! Please buy it and have your children read it. Amber is now. It makes you think how life is so unpredictable and the decision you make can change so many lives in the matter of seconds but also not to give up and how you find strength when you are at your weakest moment! Prayers work you just have to pray and believe for them to be answered!
