I won Stand through a Goodreads giveaway, but I was somewhat hesitant to read it. I've never been through abuse myself and haven't experienced anything like what Ms. Williamson has, so it collected dust on my shelf for a year until I finally gave it a chance. If you are in need of inspiration, this is a good book to pick up. I've already lent it to a friend to read and I'm still reflecting on it. With the exception of the way it jumps around and has little organization, this book was a great read that I would recommend to others.
