In candid, oftentimes witty and self-effacing short essays and poems throughout her book, Ambrosio describes how she relies on her sense of humor, help from her “Scaffolding Team”, music, and an optimistic attitude to cope with having multiple sclerosis (MS) and being middle-aged.
“I’ve been dealing with MS, a condition where ‘the only certainty is uncertainty’
Many people who have chronic conditions, their caregivers, relatives and friends may be inspired by Ambrosio’s refusal to relinquish hope even as challenges mount. The book may appeal to a wider audience. Midwest Book Review says Life Continues has “a simple and powerful message for other aging women” and is “very highly recommended”
Life Continues is available in trade paperback for $14.99 (ISBN 9780615388755)
