Her memoir, Three Little Words, captivated audiences everywhere and went on to become a New York Times best seller. Now Ashley reveals the nuances of life after foster care: college and its assorted hijinks, including meeting "the one". Marriage, which began with a beautiful wedding on a boat that was almost hijacked (literally) by some biological family members.

Whether she's overcoming self-image issues, responding to calls asking for her to run for Senate, or dealing with continuing drama from her biological family, Ashley Rhodes-Courter never fails to impress or inspire with her authentic voice and uplifting message of hope.

Wish I could have paid for it

I listened because it was included with my audible membership. After listening, I’m hoping the author receives some type of royalty even though I listened for free. I loved being able to hear the author read her owe story. It was heartfelt and showcased the importance of the foster care system. I thought it was a great “read!!”

YES! YES!

Ashley GETS IT! I have felt these exact feelings! As an biological mom, adoptive mom, foster mom, I want things to change! I want the children to be safe vs just wanting to close the file. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR STORY AND YOUR THOUGHTS!

Excellent book

Excellent! The author reads this and does a marvelous job! Really gave me insight into the foster care system something I was woefully ignorant about!

Struggling Through This

I'm 3 1/2 hours into this and not sure I'll make it to the end. The beginning has a lot of what seems to me as unnecessary information. It gets a bit more interesting when Ashley and her husband become foster parents, but still seems draggy. The writing is so-so.

Absolutely amazing

This book gives a clear multiple sided view into one of the many horrific and broken systems will live with. It truly feels like our systems punish the people that care and abide by them and allow the none caring offenders to coast along without a care in the word. Very insightful and emotional journey. A must read for sure!

Amazing read

This book was really an amazing read. It really gives great insight into what trials children who are in need of foster care or adoption go through. I just shake my head at how the system allows such tragedies to happen to these unfortunate kids. Thank you for writing this book. It should be handled out to all people looking into foster care or adoption.

Amazing Woman

Ashley’s journey is so inspiring. She lived unimaginable hardships as a child, and fortunately never succumbed to substance abuse to numb her pain. She was very bright in spite of her lack of schooling as a young child. Her drive and focus is impressive. I was deeply touched by her story.

Inspiring

As a previous mental health worker. This offers a bit a hope that there are still good people in the world to take in the children I encountered. However, much of this covers the sad truth of the lives these children face. I am inspired to get more involved in my county and advocate for youth.
