    MUST READ

    I have read all of Miss Phillips books, and Treading Waters, A Woman Living With MS is a winner. I felt the woman's pain and joy. The story gives a close look at what's right and wrong. the story keeps you wondering what's happening next, and I read the book in two days. Any one with or without a chronic disease will enjoy the story. For those with MS, the book is inspiring. the book also teaches a lot about MS, doctor visits, tests, treatments. READ THE BOOK, KNOWLEGE IS POWER.

    Excellent

    From the first page to the last, it was a turn pager. I couldn't put the book down. I know about MS, but I never really knew and this book thought me so much. The determantion of the main charcter after everything that happen to her insprired me. Patricia Phillips is an excellent and inspring writer and I will say this is the best book ever.

    Hi Patricia Phillips, I wanted to let you know that you are one of my favorite Authors, I have been reading your books for over 3 years and it seem like with everyone, they get better and better. My sister told me that you had a new book out and I ran to the store to order it and I received Treading Waters last week and love it so much. Im part of a very big book club and this book will be on our next month list for sure. I will be checking your web site from time to time, to see if you are ever going to be out here for a book signing. Thx

    A BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD READ

    When I found out this book was based on a true story I purchased it for myself and my friend who has MS, and I was glad that I did. With the FAQ's and answers in the back of the book it made me understand Multiple Sclerosis so much better. It made my friend realize that even with a chronic disease one has to learn to live with it and go forward with your life. The story was very inspiring. I felt the womans pain. I look forward to reading more of Miss Phillips books.
