My Review: 

Signs in the Rearview Mirror: Leaving a Toxic Relationship Behind is a great read to me. There were a few times, I had to remind myself that this was someone else’s story and not my own. I was most definitely able to relate to this book. I wish I had my hands on it fifteen to twenty years ago when I found myself in the exact same situation. It would have given so much hope. No one understands what you are going through unless they have been through it themselves. The author does not hold back I admire the courage she had to tell the world of what happened to her, being truthful with herself, and how she was able to overcome and make a change.

I had the pleasure of listening to the audio version of Signs in the Rearview Mirror: Leaving a Toxic Relationship Behind. Kelly Smith, the author herself, is the narrator. I could not think of anyone else who could have done a better job to tell her story. No one would have been able to tell such an emotional time like she did.

Signs in the Rearview Mirror: Leaving a Toxic Relationship Behind is getting a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for those who have been through or currently living through an abusive or toxic relationship. I believe it will give them so much needed hope. It would, also, be beneficial for those who have loved one who have experienced or is experiencing abuse, as well.

I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
