~ I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This book is a breast cancer memoir. The author was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and has chronicled her journey in order to help others who may be going through the same thing. 

The author’s goal is to let women fighting breast cancer know that they are not alone. This is definitely a great idea.

It is obvious from the very beginning of this book that Christine Tryon is not an experienced author. However, this type of memoir does not have to be editorially professional to be effective. 

Despite a large number of editing and proofreading errors, the author is still able to get her message of hope and solidarity through to her readers.

I rated this book as 3 out of 5 stars because of the lack of professional editing and proofreading. I cannot rate it higher in good conscience. However, I have read that the author has since rewritten this book and edited it heavily. Unfortunately the copy that was sent to me did not include her changes and as such I can only rate what I was given.

If you are going through breast cancer this book would probably help you to feel less alone, and for that reason I would recommend it to potential readers.


Christine Tryon is a married, mother of three grown up sons. She is also a breast cancer survivor and a member of Toastmasters International.
