Synopsis:
A lyrical and honest portrait of illness and the way it changes life and faith, beautifully told as only Nora Gallagher can. One day at the end of 2009 during a routine eye exam that Gallagher nearly skipped, her doctor said "Darn." With this single-word utterance began the author's travels in what she came to know as Oz, or the Land of the Sick. Oz looks a great deal like the world most of us inhabit but for the friends who become unrecognizable, the long-trusted doctors who are now questioned, and the faith in God which is forever altered. In describing living through a medical mystery and facing the possible loss of her sight, Gallagher is consistently frank and never offers false sentimentality. This book is an exquisite road map for piloting dark landscapes.
