must read

I read an AMAZING article on the cover of the Style section in the Washington Post today.  It was about local author Laura Hillenbrand who wrote “Seabiscuit” several years ago.  She suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome, a disease I know very little about other than what I read in this article today, but one that sounds absolutely horrible.  I simply cannot imagine what it must be like to live in a body that is sick, tired and in pain all the time.  The disease traps her and her escape is her research and her writing.  

Hillenbrand’s recent book is called “Unbroken.”  It is the biography of the extraordinary life of Olympic-class runner Louis Zemperini who became a POW during WWII.  Please read this Post article – I just can’t do it justice.  Tomorrow I will be heading to the book store to get “Unbroken.”  I can’t wait to dive into this story.

  1. I am so grateful when bloggers share books they've read or heard about! I will DEFINITELY be picking this book up and read it after I finish 'Room' (a very intriguing, well-written book I am in the middle of right now).
