Editorial Reviews

Review

Beautifully rendered story of triumphant generosity
"Part memoir, part philosophy, part how-to guide for the altruistic organ donor -- it's an unconventional read by an unconventional woman. Ellie's story is compelling and heartfelt -- and her quirky humor, pink-tipped pigtails and transparent love light up every page. I read it in two sittings and emerged feeling cleansed, inspired and grateful. Ellie describes herself as agnostic, but I couldn't help hearing the words of Jesus at the Last Supper: This is my body, given for you...." ~~Kathleen Adams, Author & Founder/Director of Center for Journal Therapy 

Beautifully written...hugely compelling page-turner. Edwards skillfully weaves a tale proving that fact is often stranger than fiction. Again and again Edwards' skill as a writer demonstrates what a gifted wordsmith can do with a nearly-unbelievable series of real life events. She is imminently vulnerable and refreshingly relatable, which makes her story that much more readable--and the be the change that Edwards was after, may very well be what happens to the reader after finishing her book." Tom Franciskovich, Publisher; SLOLIFE Magazine

From the Author

I don't think any of us roll out of bed, slug back a cup of coffee, and suddenly decide this is the day we're going to dangle our ordinary little life by its ankles. I never dreamed that meeting a particular student in a college class would teach me more than I could ever hope to learn in a book or a lecture, or change my life in such a powerful way.

When I first decided to donate a kidney I didn't talk about it much because the response(s) moved the focus away from people on the organ waiting list. But eventually I realized if I didn't talk about it, how would I ever begin to challenge others to consider living donation? I decided to share my story because when people heard that I wanted to donate a kidney they had a hard time understanding why I would do such a thing. It's difficult to explain that giving someone a healthier, happier way to be in the world is one of the best gifts you can give, one that gives back to you a sense of well-being and purpose beyond explanation. Sometimes you just have to trust that what you put out into the world will, at some point, blow back a blessing.

I believe we are all, in a sense, family. I believe actions have a ripple effect and when you put goodness out into the world it creates a wave that spreads beyond the realm of our perception. The people on the organ waiting lists have mothers and fathers, siblings, partners, friends, and co-workers who are equally affected by the result of their friend or loved one receiving an organ. Joan Osborne once posed the question, "What if God was one of us?" To her, and to you, I would ask, "What if God was all of us?""
