Review of Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Jill Wolfson
9780805082821 pub Walker Nov 2011
Well-written, without having half the English dictionary crammed into it, Jill Wolfson’s ‘Cold Hands, Warm Heart’ reveals characters that seem alive in a way that no amount of continuous, detailed description could rival.
The raw, honest simplicity of the book made it a joy to read, as well as making me think about how grateful we should be for good health.
It is a tale of bravery – from Tyler’s “courage to love something that death can touch – that death has already touched”, to that which Dani and Milo show in the face of their operations.
The message of this book has and will stay with me long after the final page has been turned. “Bravery isn’t just what you’re doing. It’s the attitude you have when you’re doing it.”
