Smorgasbord Book Reviews – #Cancer – The Winding Road: A Journey of Survival by Miriam Hurdle

I’m a guest at Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord Magazine. Wow! What a great joy and wonderful surprise this morning to find the first review of my new book, The Winding Road. I appreciated Sally’s insightful and reflective review of my story and generously shared it on her blog. Please head over to read the post on her content-rich magazine.

My husband and I spent a week with the grandkids. We’re now in Port Angeles, and Sequim, Washington, for our anniversary. We planned to go to Victoria, BC. Two days before flying to Portland, I discovered my passport had expired six months ago. Canada would let me in with the expired passport, but the US wouldn’t let me return with it being expired. I canceled the Victoria trip in the last minute and re-booked it for Port Angeles. I’m glad to have discovered it at this time. My sister has a destination wedding in Canada in November and I need a valid passport.

It is my pleasure to share my advance review for the latest release by Miriam Hurdle… a memoir The Winding Road: A Journey of Survival. On preorder for August 26th.

About the book

In the summer of 2008, Miriam Hurdle was diagnosed with melanoma-an aggressive and invasive cancer in her internal organs. The survival rate before 2008 was low. Besides risking harsh treatments for a slim chance of survival, Miriam had hoops to jump through. By the time she received treatment at the beginning of 2009, her cancer had progressed from stage II to stage IV. It was a rough and uphill winding road. But alongside her was support and encouragement. Accompanied by the love of her family and community, this is Miriam’s journey of faith and miracle. It is a heartwarming story of resilience, courage, and the will to live.

My review for the book 20th August…

Tina invited her friend Erica to attend a popular Tchaikovsky’s Spectacular concert on a summer evening with her parents. During the intermission, her dad left the seat to buy some snacks. Tina and Erica followed him wanting to use the restroom. The shoving crowd pushed them away, and they lost sight of him. It would be impossible to fight through the 18,000…
