Keeping You In Stitches

Between Me and the River….a book review

Posted on: September 30, 2009

Author Carrie Host contacted hubby and wanted to know if he would read her book and then blog about it.  He wasn’t interested in this particular book and asked me if I would do it.  I readily agreed.

WOW!  What a journey she has been through, not to mention her husband, family and friends!  Soon after giving birth to her 3rd child she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, carcinoid tumor, which few people survive.

But with great determination and encouragement from her husband, family and friends, she has made the best out of a bad situation. The book goes into great detail of her emotional upheavals through out the time  of getting diagnosed, searching out the best Drs., various surgeries and treatments, friends taking care of her children, family helping out, etc.  This is a determined and strong woman, that wouldn’t have made it without the support, caring and concern of others.

Many times I wept along with Carrie and what she was going through. ( But I am a reader that tends to get caught up in the story.)  She has certainly got a gift with words that makes you feel involved along with what she’s going through.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is going through treatment and also for their  friends.

Bloggers note:  While reading this book, I have had 2 friends diagnosed with cancer
