‘You know life — one day it’s joyful, the next we’re in the dumps. But whatever we’re feeling, there’s always comfort to be had in the experiences of other people. The Real People who tell us their stories every week. Whether it’s some inspiration when we’re feeling flat, or a chuckle to cheer us up, or even a searing tragedy that reminds us how lucky we really are and how strong a woman can be, there’s a different emotion on every page. Real stories, from real people, and they come straight from the heart.
