[Book Review] “My revenge on life”

My revenge on life (originally written in French – “Ma revanche sur la vie” – and afterwards translated in English), by Virginie Lemay-Vriesde, is a real life story. I’m sure it will be an inspiration to many people, as this is the reason it was written for.

It is literally the author’s life, exposed in the most transparent of ways. And Virginie’s story goes from a normal life to a tragic accident, to turning up as an uplifting story…

One moment and her life took an unwanted turn. During several months of tremendous pain, she was still happy to be alive. She was strong and so determined to go on with her existence, that she fought against all odds. And she managed not to lose her faith, despite all this.

Moreover, the author has ever since changed her mindset completely. She managed to understand that this painful experience was meant to teach her a valuable lesson (or several – to be discovered), with the exact purpose of turning her into the person she is today.

Nowadays, if you connect/ talk to Virginie, you will never guess what she went through. She is so full of life, joyful and grateful for everything her life has become, that learning her past is somehow shocking.

I know I am grateful to have been so fortunate to meet her! She is an extraordinary coach, who helps expats and professionals working in international environments to overcome their challenges and optimize their potential. Her natural way of being and ability to speak 6 languages lead to an excellent capacity of building relationships.


After learning her story, the reader will admire the author’s perseverance and willing of living, as well as understanding how she found the strength to “rebuild herself”.

My revenge on life is an inspirational story that should find a place in every home.
