Book Review: Dear Deb by Margaret Terry

Dear Deb
by:  Margaret Terry
About the Book:
"I want you to know that if my illness inspired you to write these stories, the cancer was worth it."—Deb
What stories could possibly make cancer worth it?
Stories that represent a miracle—a lifetime of miracles. Stories that changed the writer as she wrote them and stories that will touch the heart of the reader, one by one by one. Stories that are not just stories.
They started out as words of encouragement to a dying woman. They turned into a collection of sparkling and intimate moments, pulled from the past to finally be understood and shared with new meaning.
Story by story, letter by letter, Margaret Terry uncovered powerful pictures in her own life of the one truth that could help carry her friend Deb from this life to the next: God is at work.
Together, Deb and Margaret found renewed hope in all the ways God shows up right to the very end. Which is where they found the miracle they'd been praying for all along. In each other.
My Review:
 A very touching book full of letters of encouragement, understanding and care that come from the deepest part of one friend to another.  I really love the bond these two friends have and the lengths Margaret went to show Deb just how much she is loved.   A quick read that will change you a little, whether with hope or love.  As my husband undergoes his own battle with cancer, this is a great little book to have and when he is finished with it, we plan to leave it in the chemo room at the hospital for other patients to experience. 

*I received this book compliments of BookSneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
