Reviewing Books: Tapestry by Laurel Lee

With summer fading, I am getting to a number of lymphoma book reviews I have not had time to do.

Tapestry is the biography of Laurel Lee, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's in 1975 at age 29. The first part of her journey is chronicled in the book Walking Through the Fire later made into a CBS television movie. Tapestry starts in the 1960's with Laurel hitchhiking to Alaska and winds its way through the 70's, 80's, and 90's with humor and grace. The story is bittersweet - although she survived her lymphoma, her story comes to a conclusion when she was diagnosed with late stage Pancreatic cancer, surviving ten months when given three. Her accounts leave the reader with warmth and understanding. An accomplished writer, Laurel's account is a good read and recommended.
