10 years ago a Mississippi house and marriage violently disintegrated. Abandoned by her husband and left alone to raise an infant in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Julie is surrounded by the rubble of her life – stripped bare by love and loss. What happens when one woman loses everything?
Naked is a true story about choices, divorce, addictions, a mother’s dream, and a baby girl named Genoa. Julie shares a remarkable story with humor and tenderness. A story of suffering and empowerment – experience the vulnerability, intimate reflections, and ultimately the freedom as Julie’s journey unfolds.
NAKED: Stripped by a Man and Hurricane Katrina is a poignant, moving and inspirational memoir that will take readers on a thought-provoking journey while entertaining them at the same time. NAKED is written by author Julie Freed Ph.D. and Julie throughout NAKED will take her readers on a journey through a pivotal moment of her life. The journey the reader will encounter is at times heartbreaking because of what Julie experienced and what significantly impacted her life in so many ways, but Julie’s story is also an uplifting, humorous one too in which Julie will make you smile thanks to her positive outlook on life and humorous passages. If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you read before and the perfect combination of humor, fact, and poignancy then NAKED is the book for you and should not be missed.
Memoirs combined with poignant themes are my favorite type of books to read. I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s fascinating life and when the reader is granted this insight the reader can learn so much from their story, and many readers will be able to learn a lot from Julie’s story in NAKED. The reader in NAKED will be whisked away on a journey and Julie is so brilliantly descriptive about what she does that the reader will feel as if they are right there next to her, learning the life lessons she learns along the way and experiencing every moment she does. The reader, thanks to the author’s impeccable descriptions will feel as if they are right there and thanks to the author’s honesty and exploration of the experiences that shaped her life, the reader won’t be able to resist falling in love with NAKED, and that is why I already have to recommend this gem of a book to read.
NAKED is an emotional memoir full of many highs and lows and will introduce the reader to Julie Freed, a mother and a wife who after 10 years of marriage had her world turned upside down. Julie’s husband abandoned Julie and her infant daughter and this alone is incredibly hard for a mother to cope with but what makes the situation worse is that all of this happened in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, a horrific category 5 hurricane that caused an estimated 120 billion dollars worth of damage and during this hurricane, Julie lost everything and not long after it she lost her husband too. NAKED is Julie’s story, and in her book she is honest and emotive with her writing and will take you on a journey that is unlike any you have experienced before. Julie will take you through the core and pivotal moments in her life such as divorce, being a single parent, addiction and so much more. Each topic explored by Julie is powerful, and she explored each topic in an honest and sensitive way.
The profoundness in NAKED is sensational, and many readers will feel a host of different emotions while reading this book. Julie effortlessly inspires thoughts and feelings in her readers as well as compel them to read from beginning to end. I found myself reading NAKED at an alarming rate because it was captivating as well as engrossing; Julie’s incredible literature will have you turning the pages frantically, and I adored how she was able to do this. As well as this Julie has written her story in an incredibly compelling and honest way; her beautiful descriptive writing will make the reader feel as if you are right there alongside her, this is how I felt, and because I did, I felt as if I was with Julie on her journey and that for me was incredibly enjoyable.
NAKED is a poignant, moving, and compelling piece of nonfiction that will help, inspire and captivate its readers from the very start until the very end. NAKED is an influential, powerful book because it deals with the topic of marriage and divorce as well as natural disasters and all the subsequent emotions/events that happen after them. I believe that NAKED will be the perfect read for those that have experienced significant hardship like Julie because Julie, although brutally honest about how she felt, still manages to inspire and inject positivity and humor into the story and this will help those in similar circumstances. However, those that have not experienced hardships like the one in NAKED, will equally be able to enjoy the book and take away something from it thanks to the author’s wisdom and bright outlook on life.
Julie Freed is a remarkable person for two reasons, the first is because she is honest and brave to write her story and the second is because she is an exceptionally talented author. Julie’s excellent writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop. The life lessons learned from Julie in NAKED will help readers better navigate through their own life, and that is so beautiful to me because it is rare to come across a memoir that will not only entertain but also help readers.
Overall NAKED is an this insightful, informative, inspiring book and I would say if you are a reader who is interested in the topics explored in NAKED and coming out the other side, then this book is for you, and so NAKED gets five stars from me!
