A Loving Journey

Recommended reading by a Cedars author.

Just as the COVID-19 pandemic arrived, Cedars member, Judy Friesem, released her personal memoir, Summoned by a Stroke. A reviewer wrote: What a privilege to read Judy Friesem’s beautiful, tender, and breathtakingly honest reflections on her husband’s stroke…

Much more than a medical memoir … this book is a story of love and profound commitment, of the individual but connected journeys of lovers coming to terms with an altogether different future than one they had imagined. It is a story of the salvation and healing offered by friends, community, and family…In short, this book is both a gift and a gem–a tribute to the human spirit and its capacity for resilience.
