This book got me fired up. It reminded me to value my family and friends, to dare to do new things and have fun. To live. To laugh. To value each moment, because tomorrow isn't promised. Such a good book. 

I will be recommending this to all my friends. Thank you for writing such a powerful book.

Pub Date 18 Feb 2020

I am reviewing a copy of Daring to Live through Baker Books and Netgalley:

After Sheri's husband Mannard passed away unexpectedly at only fifty years of age.  Sherri hunter was devastated by her husband's sudden and unexpected death so she turned to her friend's.  She had gone white water rafting with the group of friends dubbed the Dare Diva's.  Now they have found other adventures such as Zip Lining skydiving, mountain climbing, and more.  Sherri is slowly able to find the strength to slowly begin moving on with the help of her  friends and the death defying adventures they went on. 

This book is more than a memoir, it is a powerful female travelogue pairs emotionally driven tells, of healing and spiritual awakening.

I found Daring to Live to be a powerfully written , heartfelt book, and therefore I give it five out of five stars! 

Happy Reading!

This book is an inspiration to live big. Her husband died young and Hunter could have retreated to a quiet life. Instead, her three friends came along side her. They had brought daring adventure into her life and had come to be known as the Dare Divas. The first challenge after her husband's untimely death? Skydiving. It was irony, she says, as she felt she was free falling already.

She shares her adventures and weaves biblical concepts into them. She writes about friendship, discovering truths through taking unusual challenges, mastering fears, conquering bumps on the path. She is honest about her struggle with grief and battle with substance abuse.

Hunter's book is a good account of her finding the joy of living again after an unexpected loss. Readers may find many of the adventures beyond their budget, such as a two month cruise or driving NASCAR or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or a safari. Nonetheless, the book is a good story of an unlikely journey from grief, through friendship and an unexpected romance, to living life again.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

A sincere thank you to the publisher, author and Netgalley for providing me an ebook copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I enjoyed this story very much and felt like I knew each character personally due to the description of them. I enjoyed the storyline. This is not my usual genre but in this instance I am extremely pleased and grateful for opening up my mind to something totally different. Thanks again.
