The Silver Lining: An Insightful Guide to the Realities of Breast Cancer
Sep 26, 2017
I enjoyed this book, and found it gave hopeful insights into what to expect following the authors desire to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. I like her practice of seeking 'silver linings' every day rather than 'woe is me', and the sense that preparedness helped. Her 'silver lining' that (unusually) she experienced more side effects than most did that she can give insights into how to cope is certainly a positive one. Clearly the American context is different, but this was gently handled - does not shy away from the crap that is to come, but in the sense of 'be practically prepared' rather than 'give up in the face of it'. Beautiful pictures too.
