    ssusan, sorry I didn't find your question sooner--and happy birthday!

    For me the last page of this thread is page 12, and the earliest post is from 2017. But different people have different settings and so the pages might display differently.

    I'm reading Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. Saw the film version and thought I'd like to read the book.

    Agate, I enjoyed that book. There is another one after that and the name of it was More Olive.

    I did like the book--and look forward to reading Olive Again.

    Does anyone know about this book, which I just found out about (published in 2018)?

    Richard M. Cohen, Chasing Hope: A Patient's Deep Dive into Stem Cells, Faith, and the Future

    Here is what Talking Book Topics has to say about it:

    After more than 4 decades of living with MS, the author of Blindsided [which I've read] finds hope in a pioneering stem cell protocol and explores that cutting-edge world. Includes interviews with doctors, scientists, and religious leaders, as well as conversations with others with chronic conditions. Commercial audiobook.

    “The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek”. author’s last name is Richardson. I am reading this book now. Nice. I am interested in the characters and the story as well as the societal issues raised. Has a good plot and nice storytelling pace. I care about the characters. What else could I ask for?

    Default Yup. I have followed his blog for years. The stem cell transplant did not help.

    Intriguing title--"The Bookwoman of Troublesome Creek."

    About the stem cell treatment, didn't our Peg (Pegakafarmgirl) talk about having that treatment a few years ago? She was having the treatment(s) as I recall but can't recall that she ever said anything more about it--whether she felt it helped or not.

    Agate, it was very expensive and did not help. She and Joe paid their own way from Iowa to Florida to get it done. When it didn't do any good they told her to come back for another treatment, but they decided it was not worth it.

    Unless Richard Cohen has had more than one kind of stem cell he had a different kind from Peg. He is always so hopeful, but nothing seems to work for him.
