Book Review: "Bethany's Calendar" by Elaine Marie Cooper

Bethany was a gifted, happy woman who suddenly wasn't acting like herself. The next thing the family knew, she was fighting the unseen enemy of brain cancer. "Bethany's Calendar" by Elaine Marie Cooper is a true account of the Cooper family's journey through Bethany Cooper's diagnosis of terminal brain cancer.

This book is very touching and I cried many times. You could feel the confusion and pain they were feeling. It is also very uplifting to see how they relied on God and each other for strength. Each chapter starts with a clip from Bethany's own diary. It was inspiring to see how in tune with God she was. The chapters all end with a "Note to self" and a "Note to others"showing what God had taught them through the events of that chapter and tips for outsiders on how to respond in a situation like those in the chapter.

I was gifted a paperback copy of "Bethany's Calendar" from the author at a Facebook New Year, New Release book party. A review was not mandatory or expected. I just wanted to share my experience with the book.
