Comment by Patrick A. O'Dougherty, Ph.D on December 29, 2009 at 12:27am RE: Claire Power Murphy's book, Preserved to Serve. I ordered a copy on my December 11th. birthday. It is a good read. It is a wake up call in the family, medical and legal fields. Every page moves quite well. It looks well organized on the pages. It has a medical, scientific bent that strikes at the heart and is not boring. I think writing this book helped save Claire's life. I highly recommend this book. Dr. Patrick A. O'Dougherty, author

Preserved to Serve is a semi-autobiographical story of faith and hope. It is true adventure of one woman's struggles to stand firm in her beliefs and knowledge. I guarantee you will read this book on the edge of your seat and then find yourself sitting back taking in some of Claire's natural wisdom that may help in your life but be prepared to be back on the edge of your seat again. This is a MUST addition to your library to read over and over again and share the story that is and was Claire Murphy's life.

Preserved to Serve is about the system, being diligent, and faith in God. It is informative in a hundred different ways. It is a book for you, me and anyone that can understand that "The Life Is In the Blood! - The purpose of the blood is to carry water, nutrients, and oxygen to all parts of the body."

Preserved to Serve offers hope to all who have suffered with health problems, been improperly diagnosed, been told that there is no known cure for their condition and/or that they have a limited time to live.

Author, Claire Power Murphy, shares her life story, beginning with her childhood in the Bronx and ending at her present age, as a sixty-plus year old woman. Preserved to Serve reads a bit like A Series of Unfortunate Events with misfortunes befalling the author throughout the course of her life.

The daughter of a mentally ill mother, Claire found herself frequently unsupervised. Her diet was poor, and she had numerous health problems. After meeting her first husband, she was introduced to a healthful diet consisting of fruits and vegetables. She adopted a vegetarian diet, and then eventually a juice diet, noting that her health improved significantly.

Claire encountered numerous battles with hospitals and the legal system over this diet. Preserved to Serve chronicals Claire's struggles in trying to raise her children while fighting incompetence and neglect in hospitals. She candidly shares her struggles while providing numerical evidence that her diet was indeed healthful and beneficial to herself and her children.

Also apparent throughout the book is Claire's deep Christian faith. Several scriptural quotes are offered as support of her diet.

Named a finalist in USA Book News Awards, Preserved to Serve is a well-done autobiography of a woman who perservered in her beliefs and overcame numerous obstacles. Claire's message that "life is in the blood and that health may be enhanced by improving the quality of ones diet and drink," may help many who are struggling with illness or behavioral issues. Preserved to Serve is certainly a book worth reading.
