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.
