    This is a quick afternoon read that deals with a hefty subject May is Lyme Disease awareness month, and since this book is about a families struggle with this disease, it was a good time to read it.I know one person with dysautonomia Lymes disease can be a cause of dysautonomia and another two who either are now suffering or have in the past suffered from Lymes, yet did you know it is an illness that is highly argued within the medical world If you ve met anyone with either dysautonomia or L This is a quick afternoon read that deals with a hefty subject May is Lyme Disease awareness month, and since this book is about a families struggle with this disease, it was a good time to read it.I know one person with dysautonomia Lymes disease can be a cause of dysautonomia and another two who either are now suffering or have in the past suffered from Lymes, yet did you know it is an illness that is highly argued within the medical world If you ve met anyone with either dysautonomia or Lymes, they will tell you how frustrating it can be to fight for a diagnosis This book details the journey of a mother supporting her daughter through that process I highly recommend this book for anyone curious about Lymes or similar illness or for anyone looking for a quick, heart wrenching non fiction read.I was given a copy of this book for an honest review

    What a powerful story,to think that a child could be allowed to suffer for so long and the medical world just seemed to disbelieve it was happening.Miracles do happen and I am so happy to know Katherine received a miracle.I truly hope those doctors and hospitals took a good hard look at themselves and made some changes.I received this book free as part of goodreads giveaways

    When Katherine began complaining of her legs hurting, strange rashes, and frequent headaches, no one but her mother seemed to believe there was anything wrong The varying ailments plaguing Katherine seemed unrelated, but they were puzzling, and none of the medical doctors her mother Eliza brought her to could identify the problem Katherine and her mother became victims of a deep divide in the medical community on the existence and treatment of Lyme Disease As the disease continues to ravage a When Katherine began complaining of her legs hurting, strange rashes, and frequent headaches, no one but her mother seemed to believe there was anything wrong The varying ailments plaguing Katherine seemed unrelated, but they were puzzling, and none of the medical doctors her mother Eliza brought her to could identify the problem Katherine and her mother became victims of a deep divide in the medical community on the existence and treatment of Lyme Disease As the disease continues to ravage and debilitate Katherine, leaving her bedridden and in constant pain, her mother navigates a frightening and depressing maze of roadblocks, rejections, and denial of service for her condition Eventually this brings Katherine to the edge of death in an intensive care unit, where doctors are still denying there is a problem In this true story, documentary filmmaker Eliza Hemenway exposes the ravages of Lyme Disease, its struggle for recognition and available treatment in the medical community, and the unwavering faith of a mother championing the cause of her daughter against unimaginable odds It is a chronicle of suffering, of political bureaucracy and abuse, but also a poignant record of hope in a very dark place.And there are some places where only God can shine light Content This is a non fiction account, but it reads like a novel, and I need to record the content.Drug Content G Other than antibiotics and herbal remedies, I don t believe there was anything in the story, not even drinking Violence PG The ravages of the disease was the most obvious source of violence in this story Also in view was the abuse of doctors who refused to treat or acknowledge Lyme disease The violence done throughout most of this book was emotional.Language G Squeaky clean.Adult Content G Clean.Christian content Throughout, scripture is quoted where appropriate The mother and her daughter find that their faith community seems to be almost the only support group they can rely on God s provision and guiding hand is exposed and God is credited for the miracles He performs in arranging circumstances to meet Eliza and Katherine s needs, physical, emotional, and spiritual.Final analysis The story encapsulated in Paris in Oakland needed to be told Just because symptoms do not lead to a predictable diagnosis, does not mean the symptoms don t exist, that they are psychosomatic There are many people with debilitating diseases that need a relative, a friend, to champion their cause, and this book would give them and their champions hope I have known several people, including a close relative, suffering from Lyme Disease One friend nearly died from it It can be very debilitating, and this work gives me a better perspective of the pain, suffering, and risk the disease brought into their lives The stakes in this story were very high, the conflict palpable, the struggle fierce The characters, as this is a true story, were starkly real, their doubt and faith, anger and love, were well depicted The story was gripping That having been said, the pace had moments where it flagged like the failing daughter The timeline was not chronological and the time jumps a bit disorienting I found it a bit difficult keeping track of whether I was in the present or past So, good story, relatable, timely and needed Four Stars I received an electronic copy for an honest review

    A well written, concise book that chronicles her daughters near death experience, bringing to life the little things that carry us through hard times The narrative fluctuates between the Oakland PICU and the years of her daughters illness It reads as though your watching film You can see her background in documentary film coming out I meant to just glimpse at a few pages and ended up finishing the book.

    Sad that this book was published in 2016 I thought we were further along with understanding Lyme disease Glad to have a record of God showing up in terrible circumstances.
