As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"

GARDEN SPELLS by Sarah Addison Allen

I love Sarah's writing style and yet I must caution the more conservative reader. (Sexual and Homosexual content, some harsh language.)
I love the beautiful garden at the center of this tale, with its unexpected secrets. Even the house held a mystery that I couldn't pull myself away from, at least not for very long. If you enjoy the enchantment of the South, as I do after calling it home for a time, you just might enjoy this novel with its spells, secrets, and legacies engrained deep in southern families and communities. You might even find yourself wishing you and yours protected a legacy similiar to that of the Waverley family.
