Reading is the ultimate inspiration!
A Corner of Our Bookcase
“We never stop reading, although every book comes to an end, just as
we never stop living,although death is certain.”
“As citizens, we all have an obligation to intervene and become involved -
it's the citizen who changes things.”
I feel that death has become a taboo topic in the U.S and we tend to not talk about it enough nowadays. We need more books like this one. She is definitely a role model of strength and courage and I hope I can be just as strong when faced with these situations in life.
ABOUT SHIRLEY MELIS
Shirley Melis is a longtime business writer, travel writer, and newspaper columnist who traveled the world interviewing everyone from busboys to heads of international organizations before launching a career in public relations in Washington, D.C. With Banged-Up Heart, she now takes her writing in a new direction, delving deeply into her own personal story of finding love late, losing it early, and discovering the strength to choose to love again. It is a fascinating odyssey, a journey both creative and erotic as Shirley and John work lovingly together to blend their dreams—until a mysterious bump on his forehead starts them on a tragic struggle against the dark hand of fate.
A graduate of Vassar, Shirley Melis has created an intimate memoir bearing eloquent witness to the kind of wild trust that can grow in the heart of an ordinary woman thrust into circumstances that few others must face. Now retired, she lives in Galisteo, New Mexico.
