Description

Fifteen years ago, Alice Hoffman received a diagnosis that changed everything about the life she'd been living. Most significant-aside from the grueling physical ordeal she underwent-was the way it changed how she felt inside and what she thought she ought to be doing with her days. Now she has written the book that she needed to read then. In this honest, wise, and upbeat guide, Alice Hoffman provides a road map for the making of one's life into the very best it can be. As she says, "In many ways I wrote this book to remind myself of the beauty of life, something that's all too easy to overlook during the crisis of illness or loss. There were many times when I forgot about roses and starry nights. I forgot that our lives are made up of equal parts sorrow and joy, and that it's impossible to have one without the other...? I wrote to remind myself that in the darkest hour the roses still bloom, the stars still come out at night. And to remind myself that, despite everything that was happening to me, there were still some choices I could make."

Professional reviews

"After being diagnosed with cancer and beginning treatment, novelist Alice Hoffman found she was not able to find the type of guidebook offering the balm for the soul that she was seekingÑso she set off to write her own guide to dealing with trauma. Narrator Xe Sands provides a heartfelt reading with vocal variation that at times incorporates just a bit of roughness in her voice to convey the strong emotions that are an integral part of dealing with life-and-death situations such as serious disease and loss. Tender, reflective, and approachable, Sands sounds like sheÕs speaking with a close friend or relative. For Hoffman's most personal work, Sands's personable tone complements the message of compassion. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
