I am sharing my reviews from the first few months of 2021. The focus tends to be on new releases but good books deserve to be in the spotlight too on a regular basis.
Today I would like to share my review from February for the memoir Apple Blossom: my Hope…my Inspiration by Jaye Marie
About the book
Someone asked me the other day, why such a pretty cover for such a sorry story?
The image of apple blossom was on the ceiling of the cancer treatment room, and I lay underneath it for fifteen days, praying I would be happy and healthy again. The sight of the blossom gave me strength and even now, this image inspires me to be the best I can…
This novella is the light-hearted and hopefully inspiring story of my battle with breast cancer… written to help women just like me, all over the world…
My review for Apple Blossom 25th February 2021
Receiving the diagnosis of cancer is everyone’s fear. Jaye Marie shares her journey through this frightening experience from the first examination and her treatments at Queen Alexander hospital in Portsmouth with honesty and courage. A journal such as this is so important, not just as a way to document the experiences of those living through this devastating illness, but for those who might be at the start of that journey. Half the battle is the fear associated with the diagnosis, and at times the lack of information available as the medical professionals are understandably reluctant to commit themselves to a definitive prognosis. Whilst it is frightening, being informed is a key factor in getting through the treatment and remaining positive about the future. Jaye Marie does an excellent job and whilst the book is a short read it is filled with heartfelt inspiration.

About Jaye Marie
Jaye Marie is affectionately known as the giant redwood, probably because she is very tall, but also because of her love for trees. Most afternoons she can be found repotting or taking care of her bonsai collection, but her love of detective mysteries soon brings her back indoors. She has written three fiction novels in this genre, Nine Lives, Out of Time and Crossfire and is about to publish Silent Payback, her fourth book.
She spends any free time learning everything she can about self-publishing, and despite all the obstacles, she never gives up on anything and is as stubborn as a mule
She also enjoy running a website/blog and all the wonderful people she continues to meet from all around the world. She learns something new every single day and it is much appreciated.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed my review for Jaye’s book.. thanks Sally.
