Finding My Invincible Summer is a remarkable memoir

By José Neistein  

Written in clear, transparent, elegant English, Finding My Invincible Summer turns out to be not only a vibrant and candid portrait of the author, but also – and above all – a moving, transcendant personal statement of the very meaning of existence. This is one of the reasons, if not the main one, why this book is appealing to so many readers, coming from all walks of life.

It tells us the basics about the mysteries and the trade of living, of conquering the right to rejoice by overcoming grief, injustice, pain, and frustrations with the help of determination, understanding, discipline, discernment, awareness, and love. Much love. It is a convincing lesson in how circumstances can make us sink into deep despair, but then by standing up for ourselves, by relaxing and letting go when necessary and acquiring the tools to reemerge forever whole.

This fascinating account of the author’s life, fears, loves, passions and ordeals tells us also how she made peace with destiny and herself by dispelling her ghosts, and finally looking into the sun’s eyes. But Muriel Vasconcellos’ book is more than the story of her journey: it is the journey of mankind. I think that her major merit is that she had the courage and generosity of putting them candidly down on paper. We can all identify with her book. More than invincible, her summer is triumphant.

An inspirational story

By Queta

As a narrator of her life story, Muriel did not get lost in a cathartic tale that some authors seem to fall into. She wrote a compelling book of amazing love, devastating health, overwhelming grief and finding her personal joy. The special events that shaped her life were certainly not ordinary or boring. She draws the reader into her story and never forgets that those reading her words could find comfort – and, believe that miracles can happen.
