We've all heard the phrase 'the moment when my life changed forever'. Some of us can even pinpoint it in our own lives; the birth of a child, the acceptance letter to a degree programme, the decision to make a momentous change. The Turning Point is an anthology of personal accounts, showcasing the extraordinary and unexpected moments that have completely altered everyday lives.

Each of the 40 stories in this book offers a rare glimpse into the turning point of the writer's life. Hand-picked as the most extraordinary entries received in an international writing competition, they are eclectic, diverse and entirely immersive. From stray bullets in Los Angeles to falling in love in the Australian countryside, you will find much to enjoy and think about.

This is the perfect book to read in snapshots, or to dive into and not resurface until you've read every fascinating account. Beautifully presented, it makes an ideal addition to your coffee table, or gift for a loved one. With sections on Love, Changes, Momentous Decisions, Tragedy, Vivid and Learning Moments, every reader is sure to find stories which relate and inspire.

Pick up The Turning Point today and find out about the moment when love came along in a note under a windscreen wiper, when the death of a new friend inspired a teenager to live life to its fullest, and more, in this captivating insight into the human condition.

Reviews for The Turning Point: Moments that Changed Lives

Diverse and sometimes moving ... The key benefit to take away from this collection is a renewed belief that everyone has experiences to share ... these anecdotes or remembrances ... will find relevance with others who've had similar experiences. * The Australian * A reluctant father wonders why any couple would voluntarily want to have a baby * Reader's Digest *
