For those who are sick, this book offers solace and recognition. For those who care for them either physically or emotionally, it offers inspiration and compassion. Finally, this fresh perspective on healing reveals how every illness is a crucible that tries our mettle, tests our limits, and provides us with an unparalleled opportunity to integrate its lessons into our lives.
In this trenchant and elegantly written inquiry into the function and purpose of illness, Kat Duff reflects upon her own experience with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and offers a fresh perspective on recovery and healing. "A lovely book . . . full of insight."--Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul).
