The Blessing of Movement by Debora Konrad
Posted by brriske
Sandra. Fearless, headstrong, and dominant, her personality sets the stage for a family dynamic that will affect all members for the rest of their lives, the youngest sister most of all. The complex relationship between these two sisters spans over forty years of events and results in a final act of redemption, restoration, and forgiveness. The story demonstrates how one can flourish despite circumstances and motivates the reader to live their best life every day. It is a story of family, growth, and the overwhelmingly powerful impact of unconditional love.
Normally I don’t read motivational stories but for some reason this one caught my eye and I’m glad I grabbed it. This is the true story of the lives of the author and her disabled sister Sandra. As with any sisters there’s ups and downs with lots of emotions, made even more emotional due to Sandra being a quadriplegic. Deborah has spent a good part of her life caring for her elderly parents and Sandra and the book let’s us look in on their lives. I’m glad I took a chance on this book, I laughed , I cried and thoroughly enjoyed this look into their lives. Deborah tells it like it is , no sugar coating here, both before and after Sandra’s accident. For a first time author I found it well written with the emotions right there on the pages for all to feel. If you appreciate a book written with honesty you’ll really enjoy this book I know I did.
