As a former rehabilitation nurse working with patients with traumatic brain injuries, I found A Life Interrupted extremely valuable. I wish a book such as this had been available at that time. This book provides a deeply moving view into the world that so many of my patients experienced. Ms. Mathewson's poetry is powerful, deeply moving and engaging. I would highly recommend this book on many levels, including a "must-read" for health care professionals in the fields of neurology and rehabilitation, as well as those with friends and loved ones who have experienced a traumatic brain injury.

As someone who had a serious brain injury, I could so relate to the sentiments expressed in these poems. Following the natural progression of healing physically, emotionally, and mentally post injury, the poems start out expressing the bewilderment, shock, and grief arriving with a brain injury and evolve to communicate hesitant acceptance and hope. Finally, the last poems convey a new understanding of reality, energy, and appreciation of life. I wish I had had access to this book when I was in the midst of my rehabilitation. These moving poems will provide relief and inspiration for those with a brain injury and insight into their confusing world for those around them.Was this review helpful?
