“Nothing Is Promised” – A Memoir
Kirkus calls "Nothing is Promised" a "remarkable" story of courage that will resonate with others and praises Marjorie for telling a frank and cathartic story with "endearing self-deprecation."
Marjorie Belson takes us along on her roller coaster ride of experience and emotions; the joys and anxiety that family brings, the devastation of 9/11, and her struggle from the diagnosis of cancer through recovery and triumph. Her family becomes your family, her friends become your friends. And at the end of the day, her peace will be your peace.
Author Marjorie E. Belson released her memoir, “Nothing is Promised,” regarding her struggle handling three catastrophic events simultaneously.
Although many Americans were touched by the tragedy of 9/11 or the deployment of loved ones to a far-away desert region or the crisis of breast cancer surgery and recovery - few dealt with all three at the same time. Even fewer were able to write about the experience in a voice that will help others with similar struggles. New York City native Marjorie Belson has captured the American spirit of recovery and redemption in her first novel by melding such a story in a brilliantly evocative tone while letting realism and her enduring spirit shine on center stage.
