When Kentucky author Machele Coleman Bess was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, her life became a little shaky. Coming from a Christian family, however, she has learned to have faith in God and continue to think positively.
In her new book, “Unshaken Faith: A Parkinson’s Pocketbook,” Bess describes how, while she has been diagnosed with an uncommon disease, she strives to appreciate the little things in life and remember that God alone is her fortress and she will not be shaken.
Bess is not the only person who has to struggle with her disease, however; her family has been impacted by her daily struggles, although they’ve never been closer.
Readers journey with the author through her path to recovery in this powerful memoir as she exposes her struggles, but enlightens those diagnosed with Parkinson’s, those with loved ones suffering, or even those working to help a Parkinson’s patient.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Bess lives in Owenton. This is her second book.
