"...In between the first and last poems is an uplifting journey of one woman's battle against the physical, emotional and psychological trauma of breast cancer....Ms. Barnhart's story is powerful and touching and sure to be an inspiration to other cancer patients....the poems and artwork will certainly inspire countless hours of reflection and the book can be re-read over and over with new insights found each time." -- OncoLink Book Review by Kenneth Blank, MD, University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center, August 4, 1997
About the Author
Life's journey sent Margaret Barnhart on a search for identity and control. As a child, a daughter, and a sister, she explored and challenged. The years of education included advanced degrees in Elementary Education (Capital University), Guidance and Counseling (Miami University), and Art Therapy (Wright State University). The 28 years of her first marriage included mothering two sons, many household moves to accommodate her husband's job desires, full time work in various school systems, and extensive travel. The accumulation of wisdom and experience seemed to be an adequate structure for her religious beliefs and value system. However, chaos resulted when she encountered unemployment, lost self-esteem, and became depressed. Her energies were devoured by breast cancer and its treatments. At the present time, Mrs. Barnhart is a 12 year cancer survivor, remarried, retired, and recently moved to Arizona.
