Anna Gulden is an incredible woman for many reasons, but one of the reasons she is so wonderful is because she brazenly shares her story to help readers and to speak her truth. I adore how Gulden did not hold back on the details of hardships, she poignantly writes about all the difficulties she has endured, and it makes for profound reading. The reader won’t be able to not admire Anna for all that she has been through and all that she has accomplished; she indeed is an inspirational woman, and I adored her tale.
Overall In Me We Trust is an incredibly inspirational and honest tale. It takes a lot for a person to be so honest and to tell their story, so I admire Anna for doing just this and sharing her story in the hope that she can help others. As In Me We Trust is one of the most inspirational tales I have ever read, I have no choice but to award this incredible book a dazzling five stars as it truly deserves it!
