To day I am going to review a work of non-fiction.  CancerDance – A love Story by Sheri Dixon.

CANCER

Blurb:  ‘CancerDance- a love story’, is a journal written while navigating the nightmare existence a perfectly normal family becomes embroiled in once the Big C enters their lives, changing everyone forever.

Spanning almost a decade, ‘CancerDance- a love story’ is a testament to the sheer power of love, a reminder that we’re all much stronger than we think we are, and a warm embrace to those dancing along with us…

Today I am doing a review of My Problem With Doors By Scott Southard.

 

DOORS

 

Blurb: Jacob’s life changed in a single moment when, as a toddler, he walked through his bedroom door only to find himself in the office of a British officer in Capetown, 1870. This would begin a thirty-year journey which would take him from ancient to future civilizations, and innumerable places and times in between. Through all of his travels, Jacob seeks for the purpose of his predicament, the significance of his life with all of its joys and suffering, loneliness and impermanence.
