On an upbeat note comes this invitation from educator Manning (Where the Water Meets the Sand) for readers to write down their stories. Through our narratives, maintains the author, we can rediscover moments of happiness and joy as well as navigate more difficult encounters. Manning weaves pieces of her own story alongside prompts for readers to tell their tales, walking through the process with illuminating questions on the story’s beginning, middle, and end, and spanning topics such as writing about a great love, a memorable meal, or affecting songs.
VERDICT This thought-provoking title will stimulate readers to think and write about the experiences that have shaped their lives, while informing the direction for the path forward.
