Born Eileen Regina Edwards in 1965 in rural Canada, Shania Twain has lived a life rife with triumph and tragedy.
Aged two, her parents had divorced, and by early childhood, her family of seven was often without food, at times living in a filthy one bedroom apartment.
When her mother and stepfather were tragically killed in an automobile accident when she was 22, Shania knew that the only way to lift her family out of poverty was to use her singing talent and become a full-time performer.
Shania writes of being discovered, her time performing in Nashville and her sudden, dramatic rise to stardom.
Shania will spare no details about her recent personal struggles and heartbreaks subjects about which she's never spoken publicly.
This remarkable book is the story of a brave, honest, and genuine woman who faced odds and downfalls most people never experience, yet has succeeded beyond anyone's expectations.

Review by EffixiousSundown
Shania has always been a favorite of mine. When i heard she could nolonger sing due to personal trama I felt sad for her her fans her family and most of all her.Allthough I do not know her personally I feel as though I do after reading her heart rentching story of love gone wrong.Her husbands infidelity with her closest friend left her broken and unable to do what what she loved most to do that also earned her a living to sing.Shania or Eileen Twain has become one of country artisit biggest stars breaking record after record in a man domminated work world.Shania pathed the way for many more female artist in the up comming country genre.I cryed so hard when I read this book I could hardly breathe I felt her pain It was a path we could all relate to one way or another.I read the book in record time and have went back over highlited parts of the book that taught me something about my self .Yes this was her tragerty but it taught me alot about my self and others.This book is raw truthful a little to truthful it is endering ,teaching and feeling kind of book that puts it all out there.I found Shania to be brave to write such truth but I know as she must have she will heal others through her journey.Koodo's for Shania .Fear,truth,endurance,and above all she rose above it all and healed her self.
