The Blurb

Across the world, millions of people have found life and depth in the words of Cheryl Strayed. Whether it has been in her bestselling memoir Wild or in her collection of advice on love and life, Tiny Beautiful Things, she has been a companion to those who feel alone, a balm to those who hurt, a co-conspirator to those who laugh, and a steel-toecapped boot to those who need tough love. In this courageous and glittering collection of quotes and thoughts, Cheryl Strayed shows that no matter how much life might get you down, words can have the power to pick you back up.

The Review

Like Cheryl Strayed, I love a good quote and also like Cheryl Strayed – I collect them. I have books, diaries, scraps of paper used as bookmarks all with quotes scribbled on. What Cheryl Strayed has done has compiled a list of quotes that she has said or that others have said that inspire her. We have to give Strayed her due: the woman says some clever things.

Overall, Brave Enough is just a nice little collection to dip in to. If you are having a lousy time or a day that isn’t going your way, Strayed always seems to have some advice at the ready.

Give it a whirl, people. You know you want to.
