Book Review: Undone (A Memoir) by @MicheleCushatt

We all have big dreams.

We all fantasize about the way we’d like to see life turn out.  Call it utopia.  Call it the perfect world.  Call it paradise.  Call it whatever you want.

We want to live in castles with ivory towers.  We want to be rich and or famous.  We want to come up with some amazing invention, discovery, or cure.  We want to see people getting along.  We want perfect health to go with perfect bodies.  We want the perfect spouse which will certainly mean we’ll end up with perfect children.

What happens when life doesn’t quite work out the way you expected?

If your like me, it be pretty challenging to put on a smiling face when life doesn’t work out the way I planned it.


In Undone: A Story of Making Peace With an Unexpected Life, Michele Cushatt tells her story in a way that will get you thinking differently about the unmet expectations in your own life.  Michele had many of the same fairy tale dreams we all had before divorce and marriage threw her fantasies into a tail spin.  In Undone, Michele opens up about her own struggles to embrace the unexpected twists and turns of life.

As she comes to terms with a different life than she had planned, she begins to see God’s greater good in the midst of personal challenge and tragedy.

If you want to be challenged to look at life’s valleys and turns from a new perspective, I’d recommend you pick up a copy of Undone.
