Reviews - What do customers think about My Joy, My Sorrow: Karen Ann's Mother Remembers?

Losing a child  Nov 23, 2005
This book needed to be written. As a bereaved parent myself, I understand the importance of wanting to keep the memory of a dead child/children alive. Julia Quinlan's willingness to re-live the painful memories of her child's suffering and ultimate death show remarkable courage. She is indeed a very courageous woman. Her appeal to the younger generation of the consequences of dugs mised with alcohol is vital information. However, what comes through more in this book is the care-giving provided during Karen-Anne's (and her family's) ordeal. I admire Julia's honesty and her credibility in writing this book. She deserves to be heard!
Quiet grace and strength  Oct 15, 2005
I am trying not to be biased, since I am a volunteer for the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice. The book is so wonderful in that it is such a sad story, yet told without self-pity. With all Mrs. Quinlan has accomplished, it is hard to imagine the agony she has suffered. And all the good that came out of it. A beautiful book.
My Joy, My Sorrow  Aug 23, 2005
An amazing book in which Julia Quinlan tells her life story and the circumstances of the famous Karen An Quinlan case. Mrs. Quinlan explains that her deep faith and family values help her cope with this tragedy, which is any parent's worst nightmare.

That she is able to retain her faith and love of God is a miracle.

A quick read.
This Book Is a Gem. Small, beautiful and precious!  Aug 15, 2005
This is a beautifully written book about a family of seemingly ordinary people who, each in their own way, proved to be great human beings.
They were thrust into an incredible nightmare when their Karen Ann went into an irreversible coma.
The family's only concerns were to do what they thought was right and what they knew Karen Ann would have wanted them to do. Their struggle to follow through on their beliefs and Karen's wishes changed the world.
People are known by the company they keep. We are fortunate that this deeply personal book allows us to keep the company of Julia Quinlan.
Thank you Julia, for this wonderful gift.
Her Joy, Her Sorrow - Our Blessings  Aug 14, 2005
Anyone who has, is, or might be involved in making " Life and Death " decisions for a loved one needs to read this book.
