"Finding Joy is an honest, poignant account of a devastating chronic illness which is misdiagnosed for too often. This novel will resonate with anyone experiencing a largely invisible condition and trying to interact with the external world, whilst dealing with horrendous inner turmoil. Joyce's isolation is palpable as she tries to convince the medical profession that her symptoms aren't in her head and she is unable to join in with activities she once loved. Finding Joy is compelling and beautifully written, providing a telling insight into what it is like to live with Lyme disease which is a highly misunderstood illness. It accurately captures the everyday nuances and points a vivid picture for those unable to step into the body of a Lyme sufferer, even for a few minutes. Many doctors are unable to recognise the symptoms of Lyme disease and make an early diagnosis, thus missing the chance to treat the condition early on. If left, Lyme disease can cause severe complications. More education, research and awareness is desperately needed." --Natasha Metcalf, Lyme Disease UK
"a very honest and inspiring heart breaking story - a must read" --Ally Hilfinger
