Review

"No one knows, of course, how many people were inspired by Lee ... that figure could reach into the millions." -- Dan Hayes, Statesman Journal, Salem, Oregon, August 2004

Laurel Lee has the kind of faith and spirit that helps her triumph under any circumstances ... -- Po Wong, Bookideas.com, June 2004

[A] gentle spirit that kept her free of either pride or despair. TAPESTRY is testimony to her beautiful soul." -- Brad Miner, Executive Editor of American Compass and author of THE COMPLEAT GENTLEMAN: The Modern Man's Guide to Chivalry --

[A]n exquisite book! Her honesty, humor, and the clarity of soul shine through this work. I'm in awe of her. -- Sue Grafton, author of the Kinsey Millhone Mysteries

[T]he compelling personal story of Laurel Lee and her literary "rags to riches" life story.Highly recommended and inspirational reading. -- The Midwest Book Review, The Bookwatch, Summer 2004

From the Publisher

In the 1970s, Laurel Lee gave us Walking Through the Fire, an enchanting hospital journal of her battle against Hodgkin’s Disease. In the 1980s her Signs of Spring, Mourning Into Dancing and Godspeed were published.

Nearly a half million copies of these books were sold in the United States and throughout fifty other countries.

Laurel’s popularity as both a writer and a speaker propelled her into world-wide travel, adventure and challenge.

Now, this eloquent and captivating author brings us Tapestry: The Journey of Laurel Lee. Tapestry is entire life of this rags to riches Cinderella of literature. The book contains over sixty photos of Laurel and her children and over ninety drawings done by her. It is a hard-to-put-down book and will captivate both those who have followed

Laurel through the years and those who are just now introduced to her.

(Special Note: Laurel survived cancer twice as a young woman. On August 10th, 2004, Laurel Lee passed away after having fought a long hard battle against Pancreatic Cancer. She was 58 years old.)

Never have I read a book that drew me into the life of the author like air filling a vacuum. The beauty of living a life that is brimming with joy and pathos challenged my every emotion. Not only do I recommend this book that is written in journalistic formet, if it were my perogative I would purchase it for the world. This book makes you want to squeeze every ounce out of life and hold it in your heart, it makes you appreciate the immensity of the universe yet lets you look into the eyes of a tiny child and cherish both. Once I stepped into the life of Laural Lee, I could not leave the exit door was closed. Your life will be challenged to live each and every moment with feeling!!

Laurel Lee was a true 60's seeker. Her unwavering faith sustained her through illness and heartbreak. Never giving self pity a chance, Laurel faced what would break the strongest among us, with good humor and a sense of adventure. Keep the tissues handy and let this book inspire and move you.

I really enjoyed reading this. I was named after Laurel Lee. My mom watched a television program that Laurel was on while she was pregnant and promptly decided to name me after the woman. After discovering her written works as an adult, I have found Laurel's writings to be very rich and full of imagination. This book is no exception. It is like a window into her soul. I find myself rereading it often.

Laurel Lee's story starts back in the 70's, a girl in a van trying to live the hippie dream. I found Walking Through The Fire (her first book) in a bin at an old bookstore, and was eager to read more of her work. Unfortunately, she died, but she left behind many volumes of inspiring writing. She's one of those writers you just randomly "discover" and then you track down all of her stuff. This is what I did and I hope others do the same. RIP Laurel.
