"From the Roots explores one woman's decision to find grace, hilarity, and, ultimately, joy in the worst of circumstances. As a result of surviving childhood bone cancer twice, Marsha endures long-term side effects that include the amputation of her lower left leg, the loss of her bladder and kidneys, congestive heart failure, a kidney transplant, and scars galore . . . The book is arranged in experimental triptychs, with poetry cushioning each story . . . The book is an elegant pursuit of life purpose living with loss--there are no pat answers, preachy messages, or 'magical triumphant wake up calls'"--Page 2 of dust jacket.
