My Journey Through War and Peace by Melissa Birch is a story about her life's journey so far. She came from a dysfunctional family and had issues effecting relationships, like so many people do. What was unique was how she worked through her personal growth, always searching, and working hard as a journalist, eventually covering the war in Afghanistan on two separate tours during the 1980's. This book is filled with insights into what really took place in Afghanistan and there are vivid descriptions of the country and people. Her journey took her in a different direction however, because there were those in the news/media industry who simply would not publish the truth which she had discovered. She endured many frightening circumstances and yet she always pushed herself forward. She learned what really mattered to her and how to achieve her goals. This is an inspiring read and recommended.
