"Caren Goldman found her years of research put to the test when she was diagnosed with cancer. After 25 years of writing about spirituality, health, and psychology, she was forced to look at her specialty from a new perspective. Ms. Goldman, an author, former reporter and freelance writer, had amassed a wealth of information while writing for national magazines about how the spirit and mind can affect health and healing. But the crises she suddenly faced put the academic information to a real-world test.... The potency of words such as blessing, humor, passion, darkness, grief, and solitude becomes increasingly apparent as the pages are turned."—David Yonke, The Toledo Blade
