I realized my life was changed -- forever -- the first time I began a sentence with the phrase, "My neurosurgeon said..." I'd had surgery perhaps ten time before, but for the most part when the surgery and recovery were completed, the surgery was finished. Done. But after my diagnosis of a spinal cord tumor in 2012 my new life had only just begun. Helo's story of her diagnosis, surgery and recovery are different than mine was, but I found so many places that resonated.
How do you go through the physical journey, the emotional journey and the spiritual journey? Helo -- it's hard to think of her as "the author" -- has written a warm, interesting and completely engaging memoir dealing with all of these issues. I feel that I've come to know Helo as a friend and her story of recovery and faith is definitely worth reading, especially in this season of faith.
I'm grateful to my friends at the Litfuse Publicity Group for the opportunity to read "Halo Found Hope. I know many people prefer fiction for their reading, but I strongly recommend this story. I don't think you will regret it at all
I will be back tomorrow with some Random 5 thoughts and again for Easter Pink Saturday. My best wishes for those beginning the celebration of Passover tonight.
As ever, many thanks for visiting. Take good care and have a bright and blessed holiday weekend.
Please note: I was given a copy of this book to read and write about, but the opinions are all mine.
