Book Description

More Than Words: Bestselling authors & Real-life heroines

We all have the power to effect change--we just need to find the strength to harness it. With every good deed done, and helping hand offered, we are making the world a better place. The dedicated women selected as this year's recipients of Harlequin's More Than Words award have changed many lives for the better, through their compassionate hearts and unshakable commitment. To celebrate their accomplishments, bestselling authors have written stories inspired by these real-life heroines.

In this book, Betina Krahn honors the work of Donna Fischer, the Arizona program coordinator for Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit organization that runs fly-fishing retreats for women who have or have had breast cancer.

We hope More Than Words inspires you look inside your heart and to get in touch with the heroine inside of you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked by Betina Krahn June 20, 2012

When one picks up a book to read, whether its on a Kindle, audio or actually paper bound, you tend to wonder if you are going to like it. Well, I must say, I not only enjoyed it...but I also learned from it. I have friends that have (or have had) breast cancer...and I never really understood what they went through, I just know I never wanted to be like them. To be honest...I was wrong. NO I don't have breast cancer, but if I would happen to find a problem, I pray that I find people like Stephanie Steele met and they are so caring and understanding as she found at the retreat. I must say, I was skeptical at first...who wants to read a story about breast cancer...well...I am so glad I did....and you will be too.

I am a fan of her books anyway but when I read this book I felt like I was a part of the story. What an awesome tribute to women touched by cancer. She is a great writter and has been for a long time in each of her books she makes you think there is always a lesson in there somewhere :o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart warming..... November 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this story. I know several people who have been diagnosed with cancer and this story hit home with me. When you are not 100% yourself it is hard to feel that anyone else could or would accept you as anything less. This story really relates that struggle with accepting yourself for who you are after and during cancer and the treatments. I would recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars very classy book for a wonderful ideal June 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book not realizing it was about a real charity. The book had quite a lot of emotionalism and descriptions of feelings that parallels what cancer surviving friends have described to me, and it made me instantly feel the realism of the storyline. The heroine is a breast cancer survivor who has intense shame (shame is not really the right word here, but best I can do) over her experience. She hides as much as she can from everyone, fearing their reactions. She also has severe body issues from the results of the treatments. The hero is not only a past love, but also one of the men involved in the charity. I myself have never thought of fishing as a way to self discovery and peace, so the entire theme of the charity surprised me. The descriptions and discussions of fishing, however; made me wonder if I should take out that old rod in my basement I inherited from my father and try it myself! The book has a hero, a heroine, and a group doing heroic healing. It has a happy ending and a wonderful message. I would recommend it for anyone who loves true emotion in their stories.

The book was a very encouraging book. The program, CFR, helped women to realize they don't have to go thru this alone. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story of self-growth.
I have never had cancer, but I can relate to the feeling of not being your 'normal' self and the subsequent feeling that no one will like you, or that you are not good enough.
