dear deb by Margaret Terry Review!

My thoughts on dear deb

 This is a book that gets to your inner being and grabs on. You will find yourself relating to situations or feelings from the very beginning. What first struck a chord in me to want to read this book was the front cover. The words cancer struck me as I am sure it does many others as well. So many of us have been affected by cancer, if not ourselves then someone we know. But this isn’t a book about cancer, it is a book about life’s journeys and the life lessons we learn from and the strength we get from God even though it doesn’t seem He is always there.

You will get to know Margaret through the letters she writes to her friend Deb. Deb is battling cancer and has no doubt in her mind that there will be a miracle. She doesn’t say a miracle for her to beat cancer; she just says there will be a miracle. Margaret’s letters become shared by many around the world and all of these letters have been turned into this one touching book. I feel as if I know Margaret, not only as an author but also I see some of Margaret in me. We all have been there in life and Margaret has been brave enough to be open and honest with life’s twists and turns. I absolutely love to read and this book is one that I want to get for my family and friends to read!

On The Back

“I want you to know that if my illness inspired you to write these stories, the cancer was worth it.” –Deb
What stories could possibly make cancer worth it?

Stories that represent a miracle – a lifetime of miracles. Stories that changed the writer as she wrote them and the woman who received them. Stories that will touch the heart of the reader, one by one by one.

They started out as words of encouragement to a dying woman. They turned into a collection of sparkling intimate moments, pulled from the past to finally be understood and shared with new meaning.

Story by story, letter by letter. Margaret Terry uncovered powerful pictures in her own life of the one truth that could help carry her friend Deb from this life to the next: God is at work.

Together, Deb and Margaret found renewed hope in all the ways God shows up right to the very end. Which is where they found the miracle they’d been praying for all along. In each other.

“Faced with losing her friend by inches to cancer, Terry went looking for miracles, and found them embedded in her own imperfect life….If you think, There has to be more to life, then pick up this book, and follow the fifty-five small candles of honestly to the place Terry leads you. That place, astonishingly, is you.” -Bonnie Grove, award-winning, internationally published author of Your Best You: Discovering and Developing the Strengths God Gave You

Margaret Terry and her sons live in Ontario, Canada, where she still stops by the side of the road to pick the Queen Anne’s lace. Her favorite thing to do is cook for family and friends and sit around the table telling stories.
