NCLA Review -At the age of 35, Deanna was suddenly in the spotlight when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She writes about the struggles of her life, not only during the early years as a single mother but also during the years before and after her marriage to her superstar husband. Deanne openly talks about the tough-love ultimatum of divorce, or go into rehab, that she gave her husband when he became addicted to pain killers and alcohol. Her deep faith helped her cope with the deaths of family members, her difficulties in having another child, and her own devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. Part of the proceeds from her book support the HOPE Foundation which provides financial support to women in Wisconsin and Mississippi who don't have medical insurance or enough coverage. Recommended for church libraries that want to offer hope and inspiration to anyone facing cancer and other adversities in life. Rating: 3 —BM ( )

What probably started out to be how one woman, and her family, dealt with her cancer has instead turned out to be an excellent work on an individual's spirituality in the face of calamitous news. Possibly ignored by many because the author is the wife of one of the most famous jocks in America, it is a loss to those who thought so. Deanna Favre has built an incredibel personal history, which of course includes referrences to her famous husband. I think those who have read it have been deeply surprised, I know I was. ( )

Summary: Deanna Favre relates her struggles with her husband's drug addiction, their early years of marriage, raising a family in the NFL and her breast cancer.

The Take-Away: I didn't care for this book. Maybe it was the presumptuous exclamation point at the end of the title. Perhaps it was my initial assumption of "What makes her story different, other than who she is married to?" I read the book based on the recommendation of two very different women. Their combined opinions made me think it would be worthwhile.

Instead, I kept wondering about the women who didn't have Deanna's privileges. Sure, she struggled as a single mother, while Brett treated her badly, but doesn't every woman have at least one bad relationship in their lifetime? Her's turned out better than most, I admit. Her faith in God oozed into every aspect of her life, which is great for those who trust in a higher being, but what about those who don't? It was over the top at times, even for my weak faith.

Throughout the whole story, I kept wondering what made her different. I'm glad that enough women take her message about breast exams to heart and get their own checks. But is Deanna Favre any different than another high profile woman with cancer? Maybe that's the point. Personally, I didn't think it was enough of a story.

In the end, while her struggle was unfortunate, I didn't see the value of her story. I didn't see what made her different.

Recommendation: Skip it, unless you have a great interest in the Favre family. Deanna's story isn't that strong. ( )
