Hers is the ultimate Cinderella story. Susan Boyle went from being an obscure, unemployed Scottish church volunteer to one of the hottest personalities in the media in just days. Within a week of hitting the internet, Susan's video audition was viewed by a record-setting 66 million people worldwide. When her debut album, "I Dreamed A Dream" went on sale, it too shattered records.

In The Woman I Was Born to Be, Susan finally tells her own story of a difficult childhood, her learning disability, her mother's death, and the strong faith that kept her going through these challenges. Here, she shares the details of the private world and emotional life of an ordinary person who refuses to be held back.

Yes I would certainly recommend this book as it goes into detail about her life before and after fame, of course you would have to be a fan of hers! otherwise it could become boring!

Pair this with Alice Montgomery's equally well-written Susan Boyle: Dreams Can Come True, for a complete picture of Susan Boyle's life and her fame. This isn't ghost-written: Susan's gentle voice, her sense of humor, and keen intelligence keep you reading. Strangely, the pictures are better in Montgomery's unauthorized biography! Don't forget to also check out her CDs, especially the first one, I Dreamed a Dream.

Susan led a sheltered life. Born 9th in her family, when her mother was 45, a lack of oxygen caused her to be slightly slow to learn. This is the story of her early years, her family and her faith. Good read.
