Review by: TiraGP on May 14, 2017 :
This book has lots of 'best seller ingredients.' It shows many moments that get at the heart of human existence full of serendipity and spirituality. In one story after another, the author opens up so many mysteries found in life. The downside is that the narrative voice continuously goes back to a somewhat didactic tone, telling and not showing. Many times I was reading along, totally tuned into the story, then the 'narrator' who is obviously the author began to impose their interpretation onto the story. A good editor, with an eye for what's written between the lines could cut out some of the didactic parts and improve the book immensely.

Review by: ameliapisano on May 26, 2015 :
When I first read "That Moment", I was so overwhelmed with my own life.
Changes that were hard to adjust to, spiritual growth overload and so much
happening in my personal life. I honestly thought how am I going to find
the time to read this with all of my work? I realized, I have to do this
for me, I have heard so many great things about it. Then it happened, "That
Moment" when i flipped the first page I couldn't wait for the next. I felt
such peace and comfort from C.C.'s words as she described each and every
short story. I found myself in each of them as one character or another.I
could find "me" in every story. I felt like I was being healed with every
page I flipped on my iPad. I couldn't put it down, I had to read the entire
book that day. When I was done; I was so fulfilled. I was where I had
wanted to be for months; I was in a calm place, a hopeful place. "That
Moment should be on Oprah's book club list, I feel like it is in a league of
its own. C.C truly captured the "moment" and feelings of the people she
told the story for, true stories, real and heart felt stories with grace,
love and passion. "That Moment" gave me the courage to reach for this new
life, new beginning I was given; a chance if you will to use my gifts rather
than hide them. I found through each story courage to move forward,
ambition and drive. I want to thank C.C. for telling their stories with
such amazing vision in her words, guiding me through every sight and smell.
Thank you C.C., for your gift and your beautiful words, true accounts of
peoples "That Moment", helped me have my "That Moment" in my life. "That
Moment" was truly magical for me.

I'm not a writer, just speaking from my heart, beautiful.
blessings and love

Absolutely FIVE STARS! That Moment belongs in Oprah's Book club. CC captivated me with every inspiring, heart felt story. It was so well written that I could actually feel myself in almost every scenario with her. This book has made me reflect on life more and all the many winks from God daily in my life. I have bought many for friends and family who also could not put it down. I clearly understand why over 29 thousand people all around the world and counting have read this. Thank you CC Champagne for helping me see the positive ways that life directs us even through our worst storms. I know how to be a blessing to someone else, even when my life is dark , as you have conveyed that everything has a reason and significant purpose. I honor every minute of my life and now trust the process .This is a must read..... trust me, you will refer to it many times. With Gratitude, Marisa DiCicco

After reading the reviews here I had to read this book. Every review is well founded and I don't doubt each of us now have a different outlook on life. Each and every story leads us to believe there is a reason for everything. I personally believe this is so. Some stories were very sad but the author finished the book on a high note which I admit had me laughing too.
I highly recommend this book.

Review by: ForgottenOne on March 23, 2014 :
A friend told me to join Smashwords as there were heaps of books by new authors that I would enjoy. It's then I received this book as a gift from her.
I guess I've been disillusioned for the last few years, thinking people didn't care, thinking no one cared for me. I can see now that I was wrong. There is something out there that is bigger than us, people that do care for everyone.
After reading this wonderful book I will now make a greater effort in my own life to look for those who need a helping hand, or just a bit of company through their day. Maybe an animal in distress that I can take care of, I don't really know but I'm willing to find out and move forward.

I began this read, after meeting the author personally and thinking...whatever she wrote, I will read, because she has insight and heart that is wide open and lovely.

I started the book and quickly was connected. I paused briefly to share the book on Facebook. I had so many people I wanted to forward the link to, that I decided Facebook "share" would be easier.

The idea of pausing, and realizing that timing and a heart that is willing can be life altering is so important to me at this time. May I be willing to recognize that going forward.

A must read, more than once.

I'm very pleased this book has been recommended at another website or I may never have looked for it.
My wife tells me about different stories when we wash the dishes together. I have read each and everyone myself but I listen as a good husband does.
Very inspiring material. Makes you look at each day a little differently. Even though it has been read several times in our house I find myself frequently going back to read it again.
This is a book you would never discard from your e-reader.
Couldn't give anything less than 5 stars.

Downloaded this book a few weeks ago but just got a chance to read it this weekend. I can't believe I'd just left it sitting in my e-reader for so long. I agree with chrisalvin2005, you do need a box of tissues nearby as it is a very emotional compilation of true stories. These stories, some are directly from the author and some have been passed on to her from others, shows us without any doubt there is a greater power out there.
The title 'That Moment...' sums up each and every story.
I believe everyone reading this book will become more aware of everything happening in their own lives.
Pay attention people! Involve yourselves in the world around you, it's obvious that's what we're meant to do...

Review by: chrisalvin2005 on March 01, 2014 :
This book is truly magnificent. Anyone interested in spirituality would definitely enjoy reading these true stories. More importantly you will realize that stories narrated, somewhat, actually taking place in our own lives too. It is all about paying attention to (small) things happens everyday in our lives and having a faith. It does not matter what your faith is as long as you have one that includes you in it.

WARNING! you need a box of tissue nearby.

I would like to say a big thanks to author C.C. Champagne by telling us these stories you have awaken our inner feelings.

I will definitely looking for another book from you.

This book was recommended by a friend who I hadn't seen for several years and by chance met in the street. We went for coffee just to catch up and started talking about books.
We were both surprised when she recommended a book for my little ones at Smashwords and I told her it was already their favourite. Then she recommended this for me.
I read it as soon as I got home.
Wonderful stories and beautifully written. It does make you think about your own life and little things that have happened over the years that you'd almost forgotten about.
I'm going to get my older kids to read it too. They are in their early teens and I think it will benefit their outlook on life.

I read it twice in succession. The author, through her writing, has allowed us to see her soul. What we do see is a decent person. Between her own wonderful experiences filled with compassion and the stories she has conveyed from others, I can understand how it has become so highly rated.

Review by: Samantha Kirk on Jan. 06, 2014 :
What wonderful experiences the author has had and been lucky enough for others to have passed on their stories so they could be documented.
I had an incredible experience a few years ago which made me believe in a guardian angel. I was visiting my son in Australia when there was an unbelieveable flood. I was driving back to his home alone in the dark. The rain was horrific and I could barely see. I went down a small hill onto a bridge where the water came to the top of the bonnet and my car stopped and the headlights went out. I resigned myself to the fact I was dead when the headlights came back on (they were underwater) my car had been spun sideways but I excelerated and drove off the bridge and reached his home. When I returned to New Zealand and some time had passed my son phoned me. He said parts of the engine had rusted and showed where the water had been. He said there was no way the car could have ran with water that high.
I hope to read more from this talented author.
God speed.

This is short stories that are true and amazing. It is the kind of book you can read all at once, or read a story or two and put it down until you feel like another treat.
I found it nice to read before bed, because the stories are short enough, you can read one or two and then pick read again any time you want some inspiration.

"That Moment" came at THE perfect moment of my life.

Corinne, I sincerely enjoyed reading your book and have to thank you for being so gracious with your precious life experiences. I found something to relate to in every story and could see where God made his cameo in all instances! I loved the book so much so that I rationed reading the last 3 chapters!

C.C Champagne you are a prolific writer who as mastered the art of storytelling for the everyday Man and Woman. So happy God allowed "That Moment" to happen last year at "The Night Of Hope."

Forever moved,
Forever touched,
Forever blessed to call you my newest friend!

Review by: Joe Da Silva on Oct. 10, 2012 :
In the past, I used to get frustrated with trying to go in some directions I wanted to go, and it seemed like I'd encounter one road-block thrown in after another if I tried going certain directions. I also noted green-light smooth sailing if I did something else, and in the last few years, I've paid more attention to these road-block and green-light oddities, and began to asked myself, "Is there more here than this seems?"

I would never have searched for, or even have began reading this book because not only do I have half a dozen other books I bought at an earlier time which I planned on wanting to read when I had time, but the books I usually read are categorized as practical, mathematical, technical, and scientific in nature, yet, part way through reading this book, I was surprised to find I was putting other priorities aside to make time to continue reading this book to the end.

...because I was delayed, AND ended-up somewhere I hadn't planned on being, AND met someone I hadn't seen in many years, AND - who then recommended that I read this book... in retrospect, I look back and see that there was so many chances of not reading this book, but the timing of it all, which finally got me to reading it, was, like, wow! Sometimes it seems the universe has a sense of play, or a sense of humour, but either way you put it, if I hadn't been delayed, I would probably continue to be frustrated with, you can't do this, or you can't do that, but now instead, I learnt another point of view given by the author, which is, instead of being stopped to be "over-there", perhaps you are supposed to be "right-here", at that moment.

I had the ultimate privilege of meeting the author Corinne Champagne & her family yesterday.
Those that have read her e-book "That Moment" will agree it is an accumulation of inspirational, non-fictional short stories.
I also met her grandmother of 99 yrs. Corinne writes about her in one of her short stories.

The story of her grandmother came to life for me, even more so when Corinne placed my hand behind her grandmother's head, just behind the ear. Her writing became so very real for me, what I felt, what this woman of 99 years went through as a baby and how she survived such brutality.

As I removed my hand, her grandmother's beautiful eyes & smile captured my heart instantly. I continued to ponder over my thoughts throughout the evening.

Yes, we all have a history and with something as simple as a touch, I was moved beyond words.......this was part of her history.

Today, as I reflect, I feel even more inspired.
Remarkable women and a remarkable story.
I sincerely believe you will also be moved by "That Moment."

Awesome book C.C. Champagne! I love your intuitiveness and the fact that you actually listen to your senses instead of ignoring them and plodding on with life. If we all did this, the world would run like a finely tuned machine, I am sure! Your combination of stories was inspiring. It all just goes to show you that we are all exactly where we need to be at any given moment. It's allowing the moments to happen that is the key. Thanks for the reminders:) I will recommend your book to my friends.

"That Moment" is a wonderful accumulation of real life stories, that covered history, geography & holding my attention with some suspense, some intrigue, laughter & moments that touched my heart. It truly is about "that moment" when pieces of life's puzzle come together for whatever reason...angels? spirit? Devine Intervention? It's an inspirational, easy & affordable read. I was thrilled to read a book where the author brought words to life.

This book was very well written and the sequence in which the stories were laid out made you want to read on. The writer is extremely talented by showing how she experienced events that most of us would just walk on by. By reading this book inspired me to be more aware of my surroundings and look for the moments when the angels are talking to me to stop for a minute and listen and perhaps help someone. Incredible book!!

A great read! C.C. Champagne shows us through vignettes--some funny, some heartbreaking--that everything happens for a reason. Her writing is honest, like that of a trusted friend offering encouragement and inspiration.

I really enjoyed the different stories in this book and was struck by how all of them related in a way about how life can surprise and yet give you a sense of how there's a cosmic impact to all that happens on Earth.

The book spoke to me in a way I could imagine myself being among those in the stories, and made me ask myself how would I feel about how situations ended up. I like how all of the stories involved different aspects of the human condition! Very thought provoking.

Good one Corinne!

This book is a great collection of interesting real-life stories and an easy read. Once I started reading it, I did not put the book down and finished it that day. It really caused me to reflect on my life and all the events that I felt were 'meant to be'. The author's caring nature shines through the book and keeps you connected throughout. A very inspiring book!

The author has a lively writing style I found very easy and interesting to read.
Once I started the book, I really wanted to keep reading, I couldn't wait to see what the next story was.
The stories in "That Moment" are vivid with emotion and contain lots of history in different countries.
I think this book should be used as English Literature curriculum in the School system, so our future student in different ethnic groups understand part of the history of their ancestors. I highly recommend this book to all.

Corinne has written a wonderful book that captures the emotion and soul of some everyday events, and turns them into beautifully written stories. Her wonderful empathy for humanity reaches out of the pages and touches one's heart, leaving a warmness that percolates into the depths of one's being. I loved reading these delightful tales and often found myself smiling when recalling memories of them.

Thank you Corinne, for your wonderfully positive outlook and your lovely book of hope.

I enjoyed the reading time I spent with Corinne's book "That Moment...". I started out reading with a little scepticism but found myself lured by thoughts of a special force, guardian angel, or whatever one calls it, that might indeed be watching over me. Her writing skills took the stories of everyday people's lives, and events that occurred within them, and found the positive threads that linked life events. This showed me that there are forces out there that we do not understand, but yet, do demonstrate that things do happen for reasons unknown to us at the time. After reading Corinne's book I must admit to being a person that now sometimes looks up to the sky and wonders who or what will be my guardian angel today. A fine read that I recommend others enjoy also.

Some great stories. Very interesting and easy to read. It is easy to relate to because the stories are based on real events. Everyone has heard true stories about a friend of a friend that leave you saying "wow, that's unbelievable!" This book takes the reader step by step through some amazing stories and all the random events that lead up to a certain outcome.

Review by: Brenda Q - Louth on July 18, 2011 :
A delightful read that will bring a smile of similar recognition. Corinne demonstrates a compelling argument that we each have a guide and when one behaves in ways that gives goodness to others, we feel better about ourselves and our own consciousness is raised. Corinne writes excellent short stories illustrating her own sensitivity to "guidance and its gifts” that make a genuine difference in the quality of life in those we help but also in our own lives. The reader cannot miss her sense that the universe also allows a "sense of humor". A very refreshing read for all ages.

Review by: chritopher russell on July 18, 2011 :
I can so relate to this book and it's touching stories of human compassion and love all driven by what some cynics may call serendipity,others say luck.However the authoress knows there is a driving force outside of our domain which can only be put down to a heavenly power manifest in all experiences of misfortune.One door closes and another opens in all our vicissitudes of pain or anguish.Those doors are opened by angels.Corinne has encaptured some of those events in a very gifted fashion that can only have been driven by a strong faith in God and his powers.A wonderous book that lightens the soul and warms the heart.
