Of This Much I'm Sure: A Memoir

Of This Much I’m Sure by Nadine Kenney Johnstone

Paperback, 300 pages
Expected publication: April 11th 2017 by She Writes Press
At twenty-two, Chicagoan Nadine Kenney is thrilled to meet her future husband, Jamie, while vacationing in Florida.After a whirlwind, long-distance romance, Nadine leaves her friends, family, and city to join Jamie in suburban Massachusetts. Once married, they begin trying for a baby without knowing how hard that road will become.
Nadine soon faces the little-known horrors of IVF when a procedure causes severe internal bleeding, and she wakes up from emergency surgery with a six-inch scar instead of a baby bump. In the difficult year that follows, anxiety and additional failed fertility treatments threaten her new marriage and her mental state. By some saving grace, she eventually becomes pregnant naturally, but the horrors are not over: her son is diagnosed with potentially terminal kidney complications. Ultimately, Nadine learns that in an unpredictable life, the only thing she can be sure of is the healing power of hope.” (GR)
I received this book for review from the publisher at SheWrites Press. They sent me an email asking if I would like to read and I am so glad I said yes. The need for me to expand my reading comfort zone is very high. I’ve only read one other memoir and I loved it. Plus look at that cover! It is so sweet and has that buttery feel to it!
So thank you Emily Adams at SheWrites Press for sending me this beautiful book. I will read it as soon as I can and get my review up!
