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?"


JULIET by Anne Fortier

JulietReview written by Amy Wheelwright


I loved this book! This book has adventure, a little romance, and a historical story of Romeo and Juliet. The text alternates between Julie's modern day adventures, discoveries in Italy, and the historical background of the story of Romeo and Juliet. As you get into the story and start each chapter, you have to really watch the dates at the beginning of each to keep track of what you're reading about - the present or the past.

Julie learns that she is a distant relative of the famous “Juliet". She and her twin sister, Janis, were raised by their Aunt in the US. When their Aunt dies, everything is left to Janis, and Julie is sent on an adventure to Italy to find a “treasure” that their mother left.

This book kept me very involved and I didn’t want to put it down.
