Now in paperback from superstar Shania Twain, a poignant, heartfelt, and beautifully told account of her hard-scrabble childhood, rise to worldwide fame, and recent personal tragedies.
The world may know Shania Twain as many things: a music legend, a mother, and recently, a fixture in the news for her painful, public divorce and subsequent marriage to a cherished friend. But in this extraordinary autobiography, Shania reveals that she is so much more. She is Eilleen Twain, one of five children born into poverty in rural Canada, where her family often didn’t have enough food to send her to school with lunch. She’s the teenage girl who helped her mother and young siblings escape to a battered woman’s shelter to put an end to the domestic violence in her family home. And she’s the courageous twenty-two-year-old who sacrificed to keep her younger siblings together after her parents were tragically killed in a car accident.
Shania Twain’s life has evolved from a series of pivotal moments, and in unflinching, heartbreaking prose, Shania spares no details as she takes us through the events that have made her who she is. She recounts her difficult childhood, her parents’ sudden death and its painful aftermath, her dramatic rise to stardom, her devastating betrayal by a trusted friend, and her joyful marriage to the love of her life. From these moments, she offers profound, moving insights into families, personal tragedies, making sense of one’s life, and the process of healing. Shania Twain is a singular, remarkable woman who has faced enormous odds and downfalls, and her extraordinary story will provide wisdom, inspiration, and hope for almost anyone.

Ms. Twain knocks it out of the park with this very intimate and emotionally charged autobiography! A book that is hard to put down!! You can't wait to get to the next chapter to see what happens next!! So refreshingly honest with everything she experienced and what has made her the woman that she is today. I laughed and cried along her journey from the poverty-stricken and dysfunctional youth, to stardom and to finding love again and not giving up on life! Her life story is a reminder to all that no matter what adversity comes your way that tomorrow is a new beginning and to never give up on dreams, life or love. Thank you Eillen for writing this book and opening up to all of us what a journey you have been on.
One of the most honest books I have read ...
Shania really becomes transparent ... Makes you love her
Loyal Fan On Pins & Needles
My name is Zach, & I have been a Loyal S.T. Fan my entire life. This book will take that loyalty to another level as it accounts for personal background about Shania's life. I have gotten my relatives into the artist, and I always request a Shania Twain Song on my local Country Music Radio Station; and I recomend this book to anyone who is a Shania Twain lover. "...And after all this time, you're still the one I love..."
