Cottage Grove, MN, USA – WEBWIRE

“Lisabeth Mackall had two choices: be lost to the chemo and cancer or continue to fight back.”

Early this year, Lisabeth Mackall published her second book, a cancer survival memoir titled “Dying to Live Your Life: Why Does It Take Facing Death to Live Your Best Life?” (ReadersMagnet; 2019).
The book is a testament to the author’s inner strength, perseverance, and optimism. After enduring her husband’s brain injury, Mackall faced a new challenge, this time her own: stage IV breast cancer. She focused on her time living and embarked on a journey to heal and move forward rather than resign herself to the disease. And writing her memoir is part of the journey.
“With the promise of how to begin to look into life possibilities after an incredible, life-changing diagnoses, I wrote ‘Dying to Live Your Life,’ ” wrote Mackall in her guest post on ReadersMagnet Authors’ Lounge, “with the goal being to talk with others about finding the best YOU in a life along a stagnant path.”
‘Dying to Live Your Life’ is a detailed walk along that cancer path. This story reveals the true, emotional impact that a cancer diagnosis can have on an individual, and how through that journey new life is born. Understanding that amazing awareness of the world around us is can be found – if we only pay attention.”
The memoir received great reviews from book reviewers. Manhattan Book Review’s Jennifer Padgett, who gave the book 4.5 stars out of 5, wrote “She (Mackall) writes with candor, simplicity, and authenticity about a subject that deserves attention… Her words exude courage, determination, and optimism…”
Maria Hughes of The US Review of Books named the memoir “a poignant read that summons the soul to drink deeper of life and not to sleep-walk through it.” She wrote “Mackall’s entries, however, are not meant to be just a glimpse into her mind. She seeks neither pity nor sympathy. Rather, she uses these experiences to be a clarion call to the reader.”
San Francisco Book Review’s Rachel Dehning called Mackall “an excellent example of a motivational speaker, constantly reminding people to savor the small things in life—the sunshine, the smells, and sights of nature—to really grasp what is important in life to help you to calm yourself.”
Arron Washington of Pacific Book Review commends the book for teaching readers “about embracing life the way it is, taking care of ourselves, showing optimism and having a positive attitude during bad days, and moving on when terrible things happen to us.”
“Telling her story not only creates awareness but also gives us an insight as to what cancer patients go through,” said Washington in his review.
Susan Miller of Seattle Book Review found the book to be “an honest, heartfelt, and well-written book” and said the book made her “believe even more strongly in the importance of the here and now.”
Tulsa Book Review’s Kristi Elizabeth, who gave it all five stars, said she “really enjoyed this book because it was a true-life story that the author was brave enough to share and publish,” commenting “It was very therapeutic.”
