This book is an inspiration to live big. Her husband died young and Hunter could have retreated to a quiet life. Instead, her three friends came along side her. They had brought daring adventure into her life and had come to be known as the Dare Divas. The first challenge after her husband's untimely death? Skydiving. It was irony, she says, as she felt she was free falling already.
She shares her adventures and weaves biblical concepts into them. She writes about friendship, discovering truths through taking unusual challenges, mastering fears, conquering bumps on the path. She is honest about her struggle with grief and battle with substance abuse.
Hunter's book is a good account of her finding the joy of living again after an unexpected loss. Readers may find many of the adventures beyond their budget, such as a two month cruise or driving NASCAR or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or a safari. Nonetheless, the book is a good story of an unlikely journey from grief, through friendship and an unexpected romance, to living life again.
