Although she's been clean since 1983, her past heroin addiction came back to haunt her when she was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in July 2008. Weekly injections of the treatment drug interferon shut down Nat's kidneys, forcing her to undergo kidney dialysis three times a week. As if that weren't awful enough, Natalie's older sister Carole nicknamed "Cookie" was dying from lung cancer.
In L.A., a pregnant woman by the name of Jessica happened to tune into Larry King Live where Natalie talked about waiting for a kidney transplant and thought about finding a way to help her. Sadly Jessica passed away while giving birth, but her family was able to give Nat her kidney since she was an organ donor. Is that a miracle or what?
Alternating between the voices of Natalie and Jessica's sister Patty, both explore their painful losses and powerful gains of how their lives crossed. Love Brought Me Back is filled with sadness, faith, and the power of love.
The book kept me wanting to turn the pages to see what would happen next. It was a happy ending to such a sad story of how Natalie got so sick, her wonderful sister Cooke became suddenly ill, as well as the loss on both sides (Cooke and Jessica). Then, it was amazing as to how the Lord blessed Natalie's life through Jessica (the beautiful donor), and how Patty was able to feel her sister's presence through meeting Natalie. It is awesome that Natalie shared the greatest lessons that she learned, as well as the four principles that Cooke past on to her; they are strong messages that are very useful.
I enjoyed this memoir very much and was sad to see it come to an end. Love did bring Natalie Cole back; God has done it again!
All of this shines through in this book making it a very valuable resource for anyone who has been affected by this personally or in their own family or with close friends.
GOD BLESS Her for her strength, honesty, and willingness to share.
May she save many lives in this process and this is just the vehicle to do that.
Thank You Natalie from the depth of my heart
