A page turning debut that should not go unnoticed.
“When the student is ready the teacher will appear” is an old proverb attributed to Buddha. Who would have thought that the journey towards purpose and peace would be achieved through the teachings of cancer?
That’s what happened to Beth Cramer when she was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. It shook her free from the prison of obsession and depression. Cramer’s memoir “WHY DIDN’T I NOTICE HER BEFORE?“ is an achingly beautiful story of a bright, wise and vulnerable woman who can’t shed her demons until she receives a death sentence.
We identify with her conflict, and as the words come rushing off the page we find ourselves laughing and crying in the same sentence. She is a powerfully honest writer and while in the middle of reading her first book you will also be wishing for her next one.
