Dear Deb: A Book Review

About The Book:

"I want you to know that if my illness inspired you to write these stories, the cancer was worth it."—Deb
What stories could possibly make cancer worth it?
Stories that represent a miracle—a lifetime of miracles. Stories that changed the writer as she wrote them and stories that will touch the heart of the reader, one by one by one. Stories that are not just stories.
They started out as words of encouragement to a dying woman. They turned into a collection of sparkling andintimate moments, pulled from the past to finally be understood and shared with new meaning.
Story by story, letter by letter, Margaret Terry uncovered powerful pictures in her own life of the one truth that could help carry her friend Deb from this life to the next: God is at work.
Together, Deb and Margaret found renewed hope in all the ways God shows up right to the very end. Which is where they found the miracle they'd been praying for all along. In each other.
About The Author:
Margaret Terry and her sons live in Ontario, Canada, where she still stops by the side of the road to pick up the Queen Anne's lace. Her favorite thing to do is cook for family and friends and sit around the table telling stories.
My Review:
As a cancer survivor, I am always encouraged when I get the chance to read books that will encourage others who are dealing with cancer. Dear Deb does just that.
The book is written from a series of emails that the author wrote to her friend Deb, during her cancer journey. I laughed, cried and was genuinely encouraged as I read each of the 55 letters. Dear Deb says exactly what many of us would love to say to those on this journey, and would be a lovely gift for anyone dealing with cancer.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
