Overview

In the fast-paced world of technology we live in today, we seldom pay much attention to the journey each of us are on; instead we remain
focused on the goals ahead of us. As we take this journey, friends and
family members walk alongside of us. But sometimes, life gives us an unexpected detour and we are forced to leave that main road and those we love and travel alone to the unexpected. This is what happened to author Karen Kelly Boyce when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her travels that first year chronicle her shock, denial, acceptance, hope and survival. This book is one of laughter and tears, struggle and triumph. A must read for anyone facing a difficult journey…or knows someone who is.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon
A Bend in the Road by Karen Kelly Boyce is an honest, poignant, informative, inspiring and, at times, heart-wrenching account of the author's experience with breast cancer.

This is a huge departure for Boyce, who writes Catholic novels (Into the Way of Peace, According to Thy Word). This book is well-written and, with honest emotion, Boyce describes her diagnosis, treatment and eventual victory over breast cancer.

There are important chapters on prayer and meditations, and the

I am an 8yr Breast Cancer Surviver & there was so much Medical information including dietary that I never knew. Different types of Surgery & Tests also info from Drs! The positive outlook was very important to me & I thank God I had that but this book allowed me to realize how so many women go without that Important attitude in beating Cancer. She tried to add humor when she could & that too I was able to relate to. Her own Religious journey she shared was so real & so were the emotions she expe

This is one of those books you just can't put down. Karen had me laughing one minute and crying the next. Her raw honesty - from diagnosis to survivor status - was a heartfelt journey of her personal struggle and triumph upon learning she had cancer. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone not just with cancer, but if you know someone who has it. A perfect gift idea.

Meet the Author

Karen Kelly Boyce was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. She learned her faith and love of reading at the hands of the Sisters of Mercy. Only a few blocks away from the Barron Library, she spent most of her summer days and weekends lost in the stories and biographies of famous people. The turbulent sixties led her away from her first loves of church, reading, and writing. The only part of her faith that remained was the belief that we were made to help others. That belief led her to graduate as an RN in 1974.
