"It wasn't just the extra 80 pounds, it was how bad I felt about myself and my doubts concerning whether or not it was possible for me to change what I was doing. Just for today I am a normal body size, but I am not my weight. What's important is who I am on the inside. At MILE 9, I discovered the power of faith."

Eleanor Brownn's books on Goodreads
"Dear Readers: This is a little book with a powerful message of hope, courage, and daring. Ms. Brownn inspires us, as just when her spirits were the lowest, she found the courage to leave behind her limited belief of what she could and could not do. She dared to come out of hiding and shine her Light. Her story is one of hope and encouragement for all of us who find ourselves at a crossroads, ready to change. Eleanor Brownn has shared her own story, simply and elegantly told, a wonderful gift for everyone we cherish."

“I heard someone once say ‘The longest journey begins with a single step--but it has to be in the right direction!’ I did a marathon once and it took me over 10 hours to walk it in the heat, so I really connected with the sense of determination in MILE 9. The book was funny, touching and so inspirational.”

"Simply wonderful. A beautiful, quick read. This is a universal story that really resonates, because everyone can identify with one step at a time. I want to share this with my book club."
