She Came to Live Out Loud: An Inspiring Family Journey Through Illness, Loss and Grief won a Hospice award and was praised by many, including the New York Times, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, Nobel Prize Laureate Elie Weisel, and Betty Friedan, author of the Feminine Mystique.
““Through this very personal story about one woman’s battle with breast cancer, Myra MacPherson weaves practical and inspiring lessons into an intimate portrayal of Anna and her family and friends. Those who have an illness and those who care for someone with an illness will benefit from Anna’s energy and courage and the support and dedication of those who love her. We have much to learn about coping with illness – Myra MacPherson’s book is a powerful educational tool for a very difficult subject.” – Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, coauthor of Helping Yourself Help Others: A Book for Caregivers
“(The book) is moving, deeply moving…I hope it reaches many readers and penetrates their hearts.” – Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize Laureate, Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities, Boston University
“To write about grief without mawkishness, with deep, real feeling for what it really is, requires a truly good writer. Myra MacPherson has done that.” – Betty Friedan, author of the Feminine Mystique
