Between Me and the River

By Carrie Host

From the book jacket:

“When told at forty, with her youngest child just ten months old, that she had carcinoid tumor, Host felt as if she’d been hurled into a raging river, stripped of all forms of potential rescue. The voyage of this strong-minded, openhearted woman out of that river and onto safe shores is told with uncompromising honesty and respect for the miracles that medicine and love can work.”

This book is a wonderful resource for anyone facing cancer or who knows someone who is. Carrie Host offers so much of herself as she bares her soul to the reader.

She speaks openly and honestly about her feelings, letting you know exactly what she went through as she battled an incurable form of cancer.

Carrie underwent surgeries and tests for several years in order to stay alive. The support she received from family and friends was nothing short of miraculous

This is a book that will make you cry and smile and sigh with relief each time she makes it over yet another hurdle.

If you’re in the mood to read an interesting memoir, pick up this one by a lovely woman who makes you feel as if she’s speaking just to you. It’s definitely worth the read.
