Suzy Farbman was a successful author whom Oprah introduced to the world as an expert on the tough challenge of saving a marriage. But, behind the scenes, Suzy’s world would soon fall apart. An ominous diagnosis threatened more than the career of this savvy writer for magazines including Better Homes and Gardens. Back from Betrayal, Suzy’s Oprah-recommended memoir, told how Suzy and her husband repaired deep problems in their marriage. Readers nationwide sought Suzy’s advice. Yet, at the height of this success, Suzy realized her body was failing. Godsigns is her second book.
Facing the same rough journey that looms for one in three men and one in eight women in America, this tough journalist found herself weak and frightened. This big-hearted wife, mother and grandmother worried that she didn’t have much time left to enjoy the relationships that defined her life.
Searching for solutions to life’s darkest spiritual challenges—weakness, fear, mortality—Suzy found that America’s wealth of medical expertise is equaled by our wealth of spiritual support. Suzy sought out more than the best doctors. She also involved her friends and myriad resources from psychotherapy to angels, from ancient prayers to hoping for miracles. Her warm, suspenseful and often funny journey of mixed disciplines is far from a dead end!
