A FEW OF THE MANY REVIEWS
Stories of Real Women Learning Amazing Lessons
“I've always been a fan of memoir. I love reading about real people and how they've risen above various obstacles, how they've learned and what they've learned. It's amazing what the human psyche is capable of. If you're of a similar mind, you'll enjoy THE MOMENT I KNEW. Each story is only a few pages, so it makes for easy reading at bedtime or while waiting for the coffee in the morning. Various topics are covered including leaving abusive relationships, lovingly handling difficult children, assuaging the ghosts of the past, even suicide, [my contribution]. Portions of the proceeds from sales of the book go towards various charities that empower women.” –Author Grace Peterson
“Amazing that women from such varied backgrounds can relate so well to lives unlike their own - the ages and events are international while the writing is so personal.” --Jessie Bell
What A Great Book!
“I really like this book! I can't seem to put it down. I love how each chapter has a theme and how all the stories tie to one another in some way. This is so exciting.” --Samantha Wheeler
Ms. Spahr Nelson has done it again
“I have been looking forward to this book for months--since I finished the first book in the Reflections from Women series. Terri Spahr Nelson has again put together a collection of short stories written by women from literally all around the world. Some of my friends said they savored the stories, reading one every night. I on the other hand devoured it all at once, as one story whet my appetite for the next. What a wonderful way to provide a forum for the diverse voices of women. And if you haven't already read the first book - When One Door Closes - be sure to add that to your list as well. Thank you for these books and for the work you do for women. I'll be looking forward to the next in the series.” --Deb, Washington
