Starting with a near death experience in 2007, Magnificent Misery draws readers into the intensely personal journey of a middle-aged woman. What she learned on the “other side” shook the world of author, Sue Paulson. Thinking her brush with death and the resulting visit to the spiritual realm would be her most challenging life experience, a cancer diagnosis in 2011, then a second bout in 2012 proved her wrong. During her battle, Sue began to understand that cancer was her greatest teacher – one that would complete her journey from adversity to ecstasy. An aware and deeply spiritual person, she relates in intimate detail the tragedies, gifts, and ultimate meaning she gleaned from her life-changing experiences.
With courage, grace, and dignity, Sue moves from defeat to a deeper understanding of life’s meaning for her. Her story is not just her story – it belongs to everyone who has ever faced adversity and desires to triumph over it.
