“I had never considered transplant. No one I knew had done it. I had no personal advice. It seemed dangerous. I was afraid,” recalls the author, then adds, “It’s not easy to take the scary out of scary. Information and conversation sometimes help.”
And that’s what Edith Aileen Noe does in this book about her heart transplant. She approaches her personal experience, in a gentle way, with non-technical information and a friendly (at times humorous) conversation with a reader curious about what it is like to have this life-threatening surgery.
