I love the analogy comparing our purses to our lives! What a theme: Changing our perspective from victim to empowered. The author has a clear, engaging writing style and manages to pack a lot of meat into this book. Very good.

I loved this book from the first word

The Tender topic of Domestic Violence is often taken for granted by the public at large. When someone has been hurt so badly, they barely have a voice, its very hard to write. I loved this book from the first word. I hope it heals the hearts of so many who need the encouragement.

OVERVIEW

This book is a unique, transformational, and inspirational guidebook using a woman’s handbag as the guiding metaphor for the emotional baggage and inner world we carry around with us everyday that no one sees from the outside. This book is very practical and hands-on. The metaphorical handbag (outlined beautifully in the preface) provides an important tool for talking about difficult topics like domestic abuse, depression, and loss. The exercises are relevant and invite the reader to take things further and implement changes in his or her own life.

The beginning of each chapter is formatted with an inspirational quote that reflects the theme of the upcoming chapter. The body of the chapter are memoir stories and personal experiences that pertain to the take home message for the reader. At the end of each chapter, there is a mantra followed by practical exercises and applications for the reader to use to transform and rebuild their lives from whatever obstacle they are facing.

This book has a strong domestic abuse theme however, the practical applications and stories apply to anyone who has ever faced a struggle or difficult situation.

The goal of this book is to impact the world in a positive way by putting a “silver lining” to the issue of domestic violence and abuse, depression, and loss.

The author’s motivation is to inspire others to break free from whatever is holding them back by implementing simple, yet powerful shifts in perspective and mindset to catapult their lives and change the course of their futures.

EXCERPT FROM PURSEPECTIVE:

“As your perspective changes from viewing yourself as a powerless victim of circumstances to seeing that you have the power to choose not only how your mindset but also how you react to circumstances that come your way, you open yourself up to new and different options. This is the first step in creating a life you love on your own terms. As a result of shifting your perspective, you can begin living a life that you design and imagine. You begin to shift from victim, to VICTOR!”

EDITORIAL REVIEWS

“This book is very well structured; the narrative sticks to the plan that you lay out for it and provides a wealth of information without digressing. The text maintains the “resilience” theme. A quick search of worldcat.org to see what is “out there” on the subject of domestic abuse indicates that this book is rather unique. Well done!”
– Helen, CreateSpace editor

“What I love about this book is that it is so practical and hands-on. The metaphorical handbag (outlined beautifully in the preface) provides an important tool for talking about difficult topics like domestic abuse, and the exercises are relevant and invite the reader to take things further and implement changes in his or her own life. I think this book will make a good addition to the self-help literature that’s already out there and will be successful in helping many people.”
-Laura, CreateSpace Editor

“Amy hits you hard with this book.  A no-holds barred account of going from ‘rags to riches’ on the inside, while also doing it on the outside.  This is a must-read to slip in your purse and embrace with your whole heart.”
-Rachel Brenke, CEO/Owner, The LawTog and Author of : The Laundry List; A Mom’s Guide to Running a Successful Business and Home and Sugar Snaps.

“Beyond the leather Gucci bag, matching  kitten heels, perfect hair and makeup, many of today’s women struggle in silence from past or current abuse, trauma, loss, illness, or general lack of confidence.  In pursepective, From Ruin to Resilience, Dr. Cannatta asks the modern woman to dump out her purse and examine its contents; to pitch what no longer serves, and freshen up what does.  Only she’s not talking about our purse, she’s talking about our lives.  In this hard hitting, hybrid between an insider’s perspective memoir and a survival guide, Dr. Cannatta has you inspired to conquer whatever life throws your way.”
-Vanessa Stevens, Author/singer/songwriter and creator of The Purple Song Project.
