One Call Away, Brenda Warner’s fairly honest memoir of her life, is a book worth reading. Her somewhat fairytale story is told conversationally and draws you in immediately. While the book is marketed towards the Christian/religion, I found it to be rather engaging without being overly religious.
From a child that became special needs due to a household accident to a divorce, financial issues, and tragically losing her parents,Warner managed to maintain an upbeat attitude through it all.
A fantastical marriage to NFL star Kurt Warner, 5 more kids, and a whirlwind lifestyle seems to have eased some of the hurt. Active in various charities,this couple gives back with both their time and their money.
While the book was a little on the long side, it read quickly, for the most part. There were sections that dragged, and other parts that were a touch confusing. Why were they confusing? They weren’t in chronological order, while the previous several chapters had been.
I rate this book 3.75/5. One Call Away by Brenda Warner is worth a read, but I’d check to see if it was available at the library.
I received a free copy from Booksneeze to facilitate my review. All opinions are mine.
