Wretched (This is My Sorry) by Katherine Marple is one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever read. I cannot recall the last time I felt for a character in a book as I did in this one. Wretched is more than a love story. It contains many elements that are somewhat biographical, but always emotional. But the beauty of it is that this is not a story that you read, but rather feel.

In Wretched, a young woman is suffering from diabetes mellitus. Her disease has taken over her life and affects her re

As a woman who has my own disability, I could relate to the heroine of this book. She suffers type 1 diabetes. She is young and tired of fighting her disease. This is a disease that can take over your life. It's not a simple matter of changing your diet. (Note, there are different kinds of diabetes. The kind the heroine has is not talked about in infocommericals. The more common diabetes is type 2.)....

I would recommend 'Wretched' to anyone who wants a quick, entertaining read. It certainly is a page-turner.
'Wretched' is the story of a young girl suffering from 'type one' diabetes and goes some way to educating people who do not know about the disease. It is also a story of love and loss, as the young girl battles between her feelings for the man she has loved for most of her life, and a new man on the scene. It's written in the first person from the young girl's viewpoint (I don't think we ev

She loves Shane, but Shane is afraid of losing her. When they're together, they fight, hurling the meanest insults they can imagine. When they're apart, they pine for the other's company.

She works with Drew at her job as a waitress. She finds herself falling for him, as he falls for her, but they both have pasts neither can get over. Shane remains at the back of her mind and in her heart, just as a girl remains in Drew's.

All the while, her disease ra

Many folks will never become intimately familiar with diabetes, outside of the usual TV commercials, or TV news segments. They might be familiar with conversations on diet, or high blood glucose, or the occasional need to lose weight, but diabetes is more than just an umbrella term: it comes in various 'flavors,' and is a much more multifaceted condition than meets the average medical textbook. Diabetes is a life altering disease; a psycho-social disease which often colors our view of the world, ...more

Finally a book with characters that feel real, make decisions that feel honest, and capture the complicated nature of those of us who think deeply about life. I loved this book. I especially liked that the journey with the main character that was both emotional and physical. The poetry mixed with prose was beautiful. The end was so heartbreaking. However I felt joy in the message: don't take love and life for granted.

This story is about a girl who has diabetes written by a girl who is very diabetes minded.

It would be best for someone who has, or is close to, someone with diabetes. It is too chicken-soup-for-the-soul for anyone that would go into the story with a clinical distance from the problem. Although, in the same respect, it might soften your heart to it.

Marple mixes the story with poetry and charts and quotes; which I was happy to see. It makes great use of self-publishing, gives it a real character.

A very sad story and you can guess what happens at the end. I can identify with what the narrator was going through; however, she did nothing to help her diabetes (she smoked, drank, and was constantly eating ice cream!).

I do applaud the work Marple is doing to find a cure for diabetes.

Katherine Marple has been writing since the ripe age of ten. In her elementary school yearbook, she wrote simply: "I want to be an author when I grow up." She used to spend her summers reading and writing so much that her fingers grew calluses and paper cuts.

At the age of fourteen, "I even took time to bind my first books - murder mysteries, if you'd believe it- with glue and construction paper. I
