Reviews from Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars “Couldn’t put it down!  Was just going to read a little tonight and then couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. Before I knew it, I was at the end. Kelley has such an authentic voice. Her writing is superb. What an inspirational story.”

5.0 out of 5 stars “Inspiring!  Probably the best opening I’ve ever read. I was hooked from the beginning, and read it in two sittings. The most honest book I’ve ever read, and I felt privileged to be let into someone’s world so intimately. It takes tremendous bravery, to be so honest about one’s emotional journey.”

5.0 out of 5 stars “Heartfelt, Poignant, Funny, Riveting, Well-Written!  Kelley Lum Oshiro grabbed this reader from the beginning and held on throughout the riveting story.  More accurately, it felt as if her words and I embraced each other, sometimes warmly, sometimes almost clutching desperately. I realize that seems counter-intuitive for a book titled “Letting Go”–read it, and you’ll understand how this heartfelt memoir combines love, family, despair, humor, hope, holding on, and releasing–and makes it all work.  My only complaint? I want more! I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to share such deep emotions with her readers; I hope this debut author has more books in her.”

5.0 out of 5 stars  “Courageous Author!  Ms. Lum-Oshiro is a courageous author who shared her personal life experiences with the world. A roller coaster of emotions is what I experienced as I related to her roles as mother, daughter, sister, auntie, grandmother, and friend. This book will provoke lively conversations, especially in a book club setting.”

5.0 out of 5 stars  “Letting Go!  Finally, an honest expression of love which displays the author’s real life contradictions which in fact, will hit home to many a reader. A must read to those who care about coping with their own complicated lives and then realize, we are not much different from each other in our quest for wisdom.”
