Held Together Book by Jenny Q and Friends

Book Details: Book Title: Held Together: A True Story of Love's Victory by Jenny Q Category: Adult Non-Fiction; 456 pages Genre: Memoir Publisher: BookBaby Release date: June 1, 2018 Tour dates: Sept 10 to 28, 2018 Content Rating: PG-13 + M (Graphic medical procedures, some bad language) Book Description: In January of 2014, Joshua Tree’s beloved village herbalist, Jenny Q. suddenly became seriously ill and rapidly descended into a coma with slender chance of survival. The shock of this news initiated an overwhelming outpouring of love, wit, service, practical magic and sharing of spiritual wisdom between those in her intimate desert community. Indeed it seemed that the entire group became one in their desperate effort and race against the clock to save her life. While the words of others in the community tell the story in this book, it is Jenny’s own insightful writings that provide a fascinating window into a range of rare experiences. She gives us a unique glimpse into the mysterious worlds encountered while in a coma, the absolute alteration of losing one’s legs, the subtle venom of PTSD, the nightmare of withdrawal from prescription opiates, and the maddening frustration of having to re-learn basic skills previously taken for granted such as the ability to walk.

I rated this book 5 *****'s  The power of family love, support and endless friendship   Reading a true story book is always a treasure book to read for me. It is different from fiction. Held Together captures my heart in so many ways. The power of family love and endless support when time is not your side is remarkable and inspiring.  When your footstep is closed to death and sometimes it seems like your body wants to give up but the undying love of everybody that surrounds you lift up your spirit to fight and survive. This book is such an emotional read. You might need a Kleenex with you. It is hard to put this book down once you start reading, that is my instinct when the book is beyond amazing.     Life is too short. Read this book and prepare to inspire not only with the love of family and friends but the community as well. Prayers are powerful and miracles do come true.
