Good day, fellow readers!
You know what helped me deal with recovery after Ovarian Cancer? First and foremost, God helped me through. Without Him, I shudder to think of what would’ve happened. My family and friends were amazing. I didn't have to lift a finger except to read! I tell you what, this girl was well taken care of!
But those moments where I was piled up in my recliner, resting…well, you better believe I had a book by Christy Barritt on my Kindle pulled up. I bet I read every Lantern Beach book she put out during those three months!
I also believe her books are what pushed me into writing. I’d picked up a pen and paper several times over the years but never made it past the first chapter until after my surgery.
Christy Barritt’s books were light reads that made me smile. Some of them were a little scary, even (and I loved it)! They helped me forget I was waiting for results to see what cancer stage I had. They helped me deal with the fact that I had to go to my daughter’s wedding in a wheelchair and that other (wonderful) ladies were doing what I had planned. I’m thankful for those ladies and those books – both helped me in more ways than I can say.
So today, I recommend you grab a coffee or hot cocoa and start with Hidden Currents!
