Enjoy all our book reviews
I wanted to highlight this book as I believe this is a wonderful idea that many people could benefit from. Cancer, in a variety of forms, has affected various members of my family and some of my friends. It is an evil that cannot be eradicated soon enough.
With much emphasis on the physical and consequential sexual form and appearance of a woman, particularly, in the world in which we live, the effects of breast cancer are more far reaching than merely physical. Even though sufferers happily turn into survivors on many occasions, the results can also include a partial or complete loss of body confidence and difficulties regaining sexual and emotional intimacy with a partner.
The Songs of Solomon: A Pillow Book for Breast Cancer Survivors & Their Lovers holds heartwarming artwork depicting a survivor of breast cancer in positive and energetic positions, with full body and mind confidence and viewed as a sexual being once more. The plan is to help women who have survived breast cancer, with or without their breasts intact, to face any lasting mental and emotional demons and completely win the battle. The book also looks to help partners and lovers understand the emotional torment faced by a woman who many have lost one or both breasts.
Supportive & Empowering
Tony Barca is an incredibly talented and sensitive artist who has teamed her earthy, soul-warming illustrations with the words from the Songs of Solomon from the Bible, to provide all those affected by breast cancer with a statement of feminine empowerment. This book has been created to help women who have been through breast cancer take back the power and regain confidence in their sexuality, and as an aid to their partners and lovers too.
Of course there are men out there struggling with breast cancer – as well as other forms of cancer and illness which affect their views towards their sexuality – and I would love to see a similar male empowerment book available for them and their partners. Perhaps the next project for the talented Tony Barca?
I believe this book to be a very worthy project to give your consideration and support to and I truly hope it finds the good homes, exposure and distribution that it deserves.
