This book by: Nick Vujicic with Kanae Vujicic is labeled as “A Remarkable Story of True Love Conquering All.” Many people are already familiar with Nick Vujicic’s testimony of being born without limbs. He is an inspirational and motivational speaker and is not shy about sharing his life story and how God has used him. This book shares the story of how he met his wife Kanae, about the birth of their son Kiyoshi, and the ups and downs that they have faced managing life in the public’s eye. It shares Nick and Kanae’s personal perspective, insight, and advice on a number of topics. They focus on how Christ has influenced their dating, marriage, and family life.
Although I knew about Nick Vujicic’s story from news articles and you-tube videos, I have not read any of his other books. He did a good job of sharing parts of his testimony, before meeting Kanae, that I assume were written in previous books. There were still times that I felt like I didn’t know the full story. This book is absolutely a stand alone book, I just found myself interested in knowing more about his life before meeting his wife. Both Nick and Kanae write throughout the book and the transitions from one person to the other are clear. The authors write as if they are speaking directly to the reader which makes you feel like you are having a conversation with them. I felt that this book was geared toward singles or newly married couples. I do not feel like I gained any new information or applicable advice for my personal life since I have already lived the dating life, have been married for almost 13 years, and have 2 elementary age children (as well as 2 teenaged foreign exchange students). Still their story was an interesting read and definitely inspirational. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in a real life love story that has overcome the odds.
