One Call Away By Brenda Warner Book Review




One Call Away by Brenda Warner is the memoir about her life. Brenda is the wife of NFL star Kurt Warner. She is also a registered nurse and a former Marine. The memoir details the dramatic and often devastating life turns she’s experienced, one phone call at a time, and how she has dealt with them and survived.

From having her baby become seriously and permanently injured in the bathtub, dealing with an emotionally abusive husband who betrayed her and the divorce that followed, poverty, to the tragic loss of her parents, and dealing with the pressures of fame.

Brenda’s story is not a bad one. It is encouraging and uplifting on many levels, and it just may be the thing to read if you’re going through a rough time and need a reminder that you can overcome as well. I did have a few problems with the book however. When I first started reading I didn’t think that Continue reading
