My Year with Eleanor
A Memoir by Noelle Hancock
First off, I love the cover design of this book. It's fun & whimsical. Bright
blue & bright pink are an excellent combo.
This book was inspired by a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.
"Do one thing every day that scares you."
What a great idea for a memoir. Noelle Hancock is a 29 year old woman
who is just let go from her high end job when the book begins.
But, instead of being defeated - she begins a year of conquering her fears.
She does really scary and thrilling things, such as swimming with sharks,
stand up comedy, skydiving, & mountain climbing. It's a book that
is quite a journey. The author seems timid in the beginning. By the end of the year of fear,
she's ultra confident and radiant.
I like the little snip-its in the book about Eleanor Roosevelt too. Now,
I want to read her autobiography as well. She's another great woman in
history who I don't know nearly enough about. Plus, I just love the green dress
she's wearing on the cover of this book. (I have a thing for green dresses-
but, that's a whole other topic.)
