Nancy's book was so moving, so powerful in how she described her experience. She showed incredible courage and stamina. Nancy helps describe some of the most difficult experiences one could go through with some of the most powerful and progressive therapies available. Her story is inspiring, uplifting and can give hope to so many who are unaware of the many healing options with alternative healing. Thank you for allowing me to read your story.

Nancy's story is dramatic and arresting. She tells of her fall from a cliff, beginning her story with "My right foot slipped," an excellent hook. Her account of the accident is lively and full of detail. She gives us the views of her companions on the hike, their impressions of her fall adding to the reader's sense of being there.
"I was forced to examine my life," she writes, and that examination is a large part of her book. She is unsparing about herself and the turns her life took before and after the accident, giving special attention to her feelings and friendships. But the book is mainly about healing, as the title indicates. Nancy takes us through agonizing therapies and hospitalizations. She makes decisions based on her new knowledge gained from the aftermath of her fall that inform the reader about useful treatments. I noted that a portion of the book's receipts will go to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. A fitting dedication.
I think Finding My Way is a valuable resource for caregivers and body workers because Nancy gives us honest opinions about what worked for her and what was not successful. My hunch is that many therapists use this memoir as a resource.

This is the story of a woman's incredible journey from a devastating injury at a young age to a wonderful, fulfilling life in which she helps others by using what she learned along the way. It is very inspiring, especially for anyone dealing with the same type of situation in his/her own life, or dealing with any challenge. And, we all have them. A very rewarding read.
