Fierce Joy: A Memoir

Fierce Joy: a Memoir is a medical mystery, a spiritual adventure, and a love story. Ellen Schecter had everything she'd ever wanted: a loving marriage, two delightful children, and her dream career writing children's books and television. Her life shattered when she was diagnosed with a painful, potentially fatal disease. Fierce Joy tells the story of how she discovered how to be sick without suffering. Illness is the armature but not the focus of her book. It propels her into a quest for new meanings as she learns to listen to her body, rediscover her soul, and find healing even when a cure is impossible. Never asking "Why me?" she pursues "What's next?" and, despite encroaching loss, forges a new life paradoxically filled with joy.
