Whilst I read this over a couple of days, I think the stories would be best savoured over time, pulling them out when you are needing inspiration, comfort or faith. Giving this one ⭐⭐⭐🌠 (3.5/5) but might have been higher if I had savoured them!

    I really enjoyed this book, smashed through it in less than 24 hours! Sounds cliche, but I laughed and I cried. Perspective always brings me a great amount of clarity and there is an abundance in these pages. Loved reading about a range of women from different backgrounds, would have just loved if a few of the stories were about younger women too; there are a lot out there who have overcome so much and we could learn a lot from them too.

    A collection of inspiring real life stories from women who have triumphed through global and personal tragedy. We can learn so much from our elders, they have been through it all... war, pandemics, the deaths of loved ones, fleeing violence or seeking a fresh start, to be their authentic selves. Untold Resilience is all about hope and empowerment. The perfect book for 2020.

    Really helped to put things into perspective - a powerful and simple reminder that life has and always will be tough, no matter where you are from in the world - while life can be filled with pain and challenges, it’s how we respond to those difficult situations and find the strength to keep going that builds not just resilience but character.

    Devastating stories however highly empowering for any woman to read. This read put my problems into perspective and made me appreciate what those woman that have gone before have endured to get where they are. Fascinating to see how times have changed in an arguably small time scale.

    A wonderful collection of personal stories from BAMF Australian women. I would have rated it 5 stars but the collection is desperately in need of a decent edit.
