Prescription for Life by Dr Richard Furman


As one who is always in pursuit of “skinnier” and “healthier,” I snatched up this title for information and inspiration. The author was a vascular surgeon for more than thirty years. During this time, he gathered information and made observations vital to the health of everyone.

He advises three areas essential for good health: 1. Losing and maintaining an ideal weight, 2. Eating low-fat, zero-cholesterol foods, 3. Exercising.

So many Americans suffer from, or even die of stroke or heart attack. Both are directly related to the health of the arteries. So often, doctors will prescribe a medication after a heart “episode,” but the root of the problem is still there. A lifestyle change has to be made! The three above steps will keep the arteries clean and smooth, and keep the heart pumping strong. The book is filled with stories from others who had heart problems. Some of them chose to change their eating and exercise habits. Some did not. So often, the quality of our health¬†is left in our own hands. But as we see in this book, it takes commitment to eat healthy foods, and keep our bodies moving!

Great book, full of information and insight.

I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.

Deceived by Irene Hannon


Kate Marshall is shopping. She is in the mall. She decides to head down the escalator. Across the rail, on the “up” side of the escalator, a word grabs her attention. A little boy with the same color as her son had. That word he is saying. They lock eyes for a split second. Could it be?

The past 3 years have been spent grieving, but Kate had felt she was moving on. But it’s all rushing back… the boat, the life jacket, the water, the police. Her husband and son gone. Although her son’s body had never been found, there was no way he could still be alive. Or could he?

Knowing she can’t rest until she does all she can do, she decided to hire a Private Investigator. Connor Sullivan is an ex-Secret Service agent, and very respectful and trustworthy. As he begins to dig in, the results are shocking.

I loved this book! It never stopped moving. It was so heartbreaking, and yet so full of hope! A great read!

I’m giving this book away, so if you’d like to win it, just leave a comment below!
