Latest Erythra Thalassa review:
“…This is a wonderful book for anyone, whether serving as a family caregiver in overwhelming circumstances, or merely needing to be reminded of the temporal nature of what it means to be alive on this earth. Ms. Berkovits’ honesty is soothing. She struggles with all things medical, and sometimes is consumed with inner guilt.
Her struggles bring to mind her intended image of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea, Erythra Thalassa, in their quest for freedom and survival. Their odds, like her son’s, initially seem to be insurmountable. In time, a new perspective of life and progress begins to take hold. She takes us from “What’s it like to have no hope?” to “Never say never.” Indeed, hope springs eternal as the reader travels through this incredible life journey with Ms. Berkovits. Who couldn’t use a dose of hope today?”
