Well Done! Jul 9, 2006
Obviously, great care was taken in the development of the characters in this story. This is evident in how the reader is drawn into the story. It is an inspirational and hopeful story involving a person who handles not one but two chronic illnesses and leads a full life while encountering numerous obstacles. These obstacles are human; financial; family; federal court; big corrupt manufacturing companies; her career; while coping beautifully with her medical obstacles her multiple sclerosis and diabetes. There is suspense, love, family devotion and humor. The references and resources are enlightening. The main character, Selma, is an inspiration on how to live a full life. Her illnesses are not the center of her world, but a part of it she copes with. Great reading, a novel I applaud. Well done!
Excellent Read! Jun 26, 2006
The detailed descriptions of symptoms covering diabetes and MS will leave any healthy person finally understanding what life can entail with these illnesses. I'd challenge anyone to read it, and not be grateful for their own health. For a novice author, this is an excellent read. An abundance of resources and references are included. I give it five stars.
