Sarah Quigley is a freelance writer, teacher, and editor. In 1996, Ms. Quigley was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. More than once, when fear threatened to take over, her husband has reminded her, I know a really good book about that you wrote it maybe you should read it again! The mother of two children, she and her husband live in Galveston, Texas, and Gainesville, Florida.
Four friends diagnosed with breast cancer believe that the language of spiritual growth is more a complement to their lives than that of the battleground, the traditional words used when discussing cancer. Kuner is a meditation teacher and Sufi student; author Carol Matzkin Orsborn (Return from Exile: One Woman's Journey Back to Judaism) is Jewish; Linda Quigley is a journalist and follower of the 12-step path; and Rev. Dr. Karen Leigh Stroup is a Christian minister. The multivoiced reading by four professional narrators doesn't mince words about diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, recurrence, and death. Breaking down the cancer journey into five sections--impact, chaos, choices, community, and spirit--the authors wish to increase their connection to God (often referred to as She) through deepening humility. Women should "find their own path through illness as a spiritual initiation rather than a war." Their words and spirits will bolster any woman coming to the same crossroad in her life. Highly recommended.--Bette-Lee Fox, "Library Journal" Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
