Summary

Become empowered to face your own messy, complicated life with fresh courage and bravery.

Undone is author Michele Cushatt's quest to make peace with a complicated life. It is an honest confession of a diagnosis of cancer and the joys and disappointments of motherhood and marriage, ripe with regret over what is and yet still hopeful for what could be. 

With enough humor to ease the rawness of the story, Undone takes you on a roller-coaster two-year journey through the unexpectedness of life. A look back makes Michele long for a do-over, the chance to make fewer mistakes and leave less of a mess to clean up. A look forward makes Michele wonder if all her attempts to control life have robbed her of the vibrancy of it. And in the middle of this internal chaos, she finds her once-pristine house filled with the sights and sounds of three small, uncontainable children who just want to be loved. 

In the end, Undone turns complication into a beautiful canvas, angst into joy, and the unknown into an adventure, revealing that sometimes life's most colorful and courageous stories are written right in the middle of the mess.

Truly wonderful

This is a must read for any women over the age of 30 who has suffered any sort of hardship be it divorce, adoption, cancer, trauma or loss. She is so honest and real about her story that it made me feel that I was on this unexpected journey of life with her, that we were kindred spirits. Beautiful, inspirational, insightful and deeply spiritual, this book is a gift. Despite all the author has endured, the book is very funny and extremely hopeful. It is one I will listen to multiple times as it is a reminder to love life in the present and that one can find peace despite difficult circumstances.

Dive into this book!

Undone - A heartfilled, raw and redeeming story, shared by Michelle, that applies to every single soul. You will find yourself nodding your head in the yes motion because you can relate, crying because you get it, singing because you can, and laughing out loud because you forget you're listening to a book and not sitting together in a local coffee shop.

You are not alone

This book is beautifully written AND read. The authentic voice of Michelle's touches my heart. I relate to the cancer fighting, the parenting, the love-giving of it all. Sometimes all we need is I'm not alone to carry on.
I struggled with giving enough patience to my 10-month old son, after hearing the story of Michelle rocking her angry son screaming, I sobbed on the drive home. All I needed was to hold my baby and give him love.

A different kind of great

I was a little taken back when Michelle started singing or quoting bible scriptures but I became deeply engrossed in her story. I find myself relating in many ways and was hooked until the end. I admire her courage and faith. Best wishes Michelle to you and your family.

Loved it.

Encouragement for us all. Michele Cushatt speaks a transparent language that anyone struggling can understand. Her story is about perseverance and continuing to live even with a very shaky and unknown future. “For I know the plans I have for you...”. Beautiful.
