About the Author:
Long time network news correspondent Hattie Kauffman is the author of Falling Into Place, her griping memoir of a Native American woman who thought she'd left her childhood ghosts behind until she is forced to face all that she's been running from.
After reaching the heights of success as a television anchorwoman and news correspondent, today Hattie is a frequent speaker and is busy at work on her second book.
A member of the Nez Perce Tribe, Hattie is the first Native American to ever file a report on a national network news broadcast.
Coming to terms with God and His plan for your life is not always the easiest thing to do. Especially when it goes against everything you have ever been taught or anything you know. And I believe this was the author's stance on the whole subject of "God". I laughed when I read her thoughts on the African woman she had to interview and how the author didn't really believe or understand when the woman voiced to her that God had spoken to her.
Many of us seem to find God in our desperate moments, probably because in those moments we are truly broken. It makes it an easier transition for us to hear Him. The memoir is a very real, rags to riches story. And I don't mean riches in money, I mean riches that she finally found our Savior. It is a very raw story that I was cheering on by the end.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
