  • Member reviews
Carrie Host knows that the diagnosis of a life-threatening illness takes a split second to change your life, as well as the lives of those who love you. Packed with inspiration, advice, comfort and hope, Between Me and the River is Host’s candid and uplifting memoir of how she found the strength and fortitude to triumph over a rare form of cancer.

When told at forty, with her youngest child just ten months old, that she had carcinoid tumour, Host felt as if she’d been hurled into a raging river, stripped of all forms of potential rescue. The voyage of this strong-minded, openhearted woman is told with uncompromising honesty.

While dealing with practical issues such as how to find the best medical team and what to tell the children, Host also recounts the many spiritual and eye-opening lessons that made her journey so bearable.

Host’s unquenchable sense of humour in the midst of suffering creates poignant moments of laughter through tears. Bracing, lyrical and deeply moving, Between Me and the River is a tribute to one life, and all lives, rerouted by illness.
