“This is a story of hope…This book is a page turner. Esposito is an inspiration.”

Publishers Weekly, 5/5/14
“[Esposito’s] rags-to-riches story will keep readers turning pages… The second section of the book is a helpful guide to living with celiac disease, with tips on eating out and dating, as well as appealing recipes…Her story will no doubt appeal to her fans and others with chronic health issues.”

As a librarian (now retired), I have used Amazon for a very long time without ever having written a review. The contents of this book are worth becoming public with a review. Well written, well organized, thoughtful and packed with necessary information for those struggling with Celiac Disease, I plan to donate my copy to the public library so more people can read it. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease over 20 years ago, and, as a librarian, spent countless hours searching for the answer to why I felt so awful. Jennifer has provided a way for all Celiacs and the gluten intolerant to find the information we need within the covers of one book. She does not recommend specific brands of gluten-free food (smart!) but does recommend websites (agree with all her choices, especially Gluten Dude) and a style of cooking that Celiacs and the gluten intolerant need to follow to stay well. Jennifer is very clear about not being a doctor but also pushes the reader to keep asking questions and to keep looking for medical personnel that understand Celiac disease (took me some years as well). A tool kit for heath! Thank you Jennifer...

If I had this book when I first got diagnosed with celiac, I would have saved myself an entire year of suffering that was wasted due to misinformation, uneducated doctors and people who were not compassionate or understanding. But, no, when I was diagnosed I was given a gift of some other books on the market about celiac. I read them, and cried and cried. And now that I'm more educated, I see how those books were misguided. They were not about healing, they were not about living. They recommended things like eating corn and having dairy, all of which we now know is not the best thing for a celiac! I'm so thankful to Jennifer Esposito for sharing her story, opening her heart and teaching us all to live with this disease with love in our hearts and healing in our guts.
If you have celiac--particularly if you are newly diagnosed --please buy this book and memorize it. Parents of celiacs too! Thank you!

SHE TELLS HER STORY. THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST...... I READ IT ALL, NEVER HARDLY PUT IT DOWN. A LOT OF HER STORY IS LIKE MINE. I HAD TO LEARN ALMOST EVERY THING BY MYSELF. WISH I COULD HAVE READ THIS BOOK FIRST. MANY PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THEY HAVE IT. THEY ARE LIKE I WAS, JUST SICK AND DON'T KNOW WHY. I TESTED POSSITIVE FOR 4 DNA MARKERS ....0301 (HLA-DQ8) ...0505 (HLA-DQ2) ....0302 (HLA-DQ8) ....0301 (HLA-DQ3).
MEANS MOM AND DAD BOTH HAD IT. I WENT GLUTEN FREE JUNE 1, 2010 WHEN I WAS 74 YEARS OLD. THANK GOD I AM MUCH BETTER NOW. NO CURE, JUST DON'T EAT GLUTEN, THATS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. HARD TO DO, I FOUND OUT THAT GLUTEN IS IN ALMOST EVERY THING. I HAVE TO COOK MY OWN FOOD. IT IS IN MEDS AND OTHER PRODUCTS. I DID NOT KNOW THAT I HAD CELIAC DISEASE, BEFORE JUNE 1,2010.

This book has been crucial to my understanding of Celiac Disease and Wheat Allergy. I know, I know, don't start yelling yet! Celiac Disease is not an allergy. You are preaching to the choir. I love this book because of the clarity of thought and the well presented information in it.

Anyone who has a life threatening disease or allergy can learn from Jennifer's horrendous journey through our medical system. A system that is all too eager to dismiss symptoms and problems that doctors can't immediately or easily resolve. If it can't be diagnosed in a 15 minute visit, it must be all in your head. I've been there and so have some of my friends.

I was told after 59 years of symptoms that doctor's said were contradictory or unrelated (I must be imagining it or lying!), that I have a wheat allergy, verified by testing. I've had many allergy tests and other tests over the decades, but it's the first time anyone told me I was allergic to wheat. The doctor was dismissive to my questions of why is it only showing up now, what do I need to do, etc. You can imagine the rest of my questions. His only advice was "avoid wheat" and he left the room. As far as he was concerned his job was done. I no longer see him.

After removing wheat from my life, no easy task as you already know, my health improved exponentially. I wondered why I still became so ill with nausea, vomiting, joint pain (the list of complaints goes on) for days or weeks and then feel healthy only to start the cycle over again. This book gave me the answer, along with so many other answers. Those Gluten Free isles at the grocery store are not necessarily Gluten Free! I don't know why I was shocked to learn this.

So appreciate Jennifer going back through her childhood and explaining her path and perseverance in figuring out that she had celiac disease, it was fascinating. I'm sure this will help many people with any type of chronic illness that is hard to diagnose. Her message of empowerment and advocating for your own needs is something that must be embraced by all celiacs. I also learned a lot of helpful information and realized anew how much I need to keep informed about what I can and can't eat as someone with celiac disease (pickles using malt vinegar is something I will need to look into). As Jennifer points out, it's true that many gluten-free foods are just as tasty as regular food with some thought and preparation. Jennifer, I hope you continue to share your experiences, your food, your recipes, and your resilience. It helps us all.
