When Life Gives You Lemons
A unique memoir by a cancer survivor about pain, hope and enormous female strength.
The life of Ronit, a thirty-seven-year-old woman, married and the mother of two, is thrown into turmoil when she receives the bitter news that she has breast cancer.
This announcement launches Ronit into the hardest physical and emotional journey she has ever known.
This book is the diary of Ronit’s journey. It describes with touching honesty, humor, and a rich language teeming with surprising metaphors, her experiences from the moment she was diagnosed with cancer until her complete recovery.
She provides a rare glimpse to the initial shock, anger, and feeling of loneliness, the preparation for hair loss, her tenacity in dealing with exhausting treatments and their side effects, surgery, and losing the marks of her femininity, while she struggles to preserve the family framework and protect her young children.
When Life Gives You Lemons is a moving memoir about family and motherhood, daring friendships and a woman who raises her head each time anew, while gradually parting with her hair. Despite the difficulties, with each falling strand, she discovers in herself new strength and a power she had never known before.
