Top Customer Reviews
No weighted-down, lofty medical jargon here. She writes from the heart as if her words were lifted straight out of her journal. Ms. Nash's writing style is candid and fearless as she lifts the veil from a disease I, and millions of other women, have long dreaded. My grandmother died of breast cancer. Perhaps it's in my genes. Maybe it's in yours. Having read Ms. Nash's book, I'm no longer afraid. Like her, I hope I'd battle breast cancer with the same hope, humor, and honor.
Life's most difficult challenges sometimes prove to be our greatest blessings. Ms. Nash proves that to be the case by discovering lessons she passes on to readers. Jennie Nash writes that breast cancer made her wise at the ripe old age of 36. Now, thanks to her candor, we're the one's who are wise, and grateful.
This book is destined to become a classic in breast cancer literature. My advice: Buy two books--one to keep on the bookself and one to give away.
I laughed, cried and also realized that I was not alone. The descriptions of friends and family mirror my situation as well.
The book is now an all time favorite of mine that I hope others will read and also be inspired to tell their story.
"This is the most difficult book I have ever read. Jennie Nash is a wonderful writer, and she says beautiful things. It is SO powerful though - so vivid - that I can't take it. I cry page after page. I just lay it down a few minutes ago, b/c I literally could not read the words through my tears. I have always had trouble reading about blood, sickness, wounds, disease ... you name it (no, I don't think I will ever be a doctor. You think?), so I am queasy as I read her description of the gaping wound in her abdomen and throwing up while literally holding her stomach in."
Any book that can make me feel that much deserves 11 hundred stars, not 5.
