Songs from a Lead-Lined Room: Notes--High and Low--from My Journey Through Breast Cancer and Radiation
Songs from a Lead-Lined Room is a memoir rooted in truth and raw experience with a sure and compelling woman's voice. The leadlined room is the radiation therapy unit where Suzanne was treated for breast cancer. Her diary of this time is powerful and illuminating. Shea shares her despair, indignity, and fear as well as the compassion and caring of her friends, her husband, and fellow patients.
"This is one of those books that changes your life forever. I am deeply grateful that I got a chance to read it, and I will recommend it to everyone I know."
-Anita Shreve, author of The Last Time They Met and Fortune's Rocks: A Novel
