Review:

A courageous journey into the center of life itself. Sheila's reflection on her husband's rare terminal illness and excruciating loss of self is beautifully juxtaposed with the story of her own profound healing and reclaiming of self. Her loving family, her creativity in the form of writing and music, and her spiritual connection are the angels who accompany her into the darkness and out again into the light. By learning to create a life alone Sheila has gained not just her authentic self but also a very real connection to the world. --Gail Straub, author of Returning to my Mother's House and The Rhythm of Compassion

Powerful and poetic, Sheila Weinstein's unforgettable memoir walks its way into the sinews of your soul and leaves indelible images of a woman's midlife journey torwards being and becoming anew. Moving to the Center of the Bed is a beautifully crafted story of bittersweet memories, triumph amidst tragedy, aging and aloneness. The author allows us to live inside her determined spirit as life moves her from place to place in search of a home for her heart and another for a dying husband. Weinstein pushes past fear and pain to weave an undeniably poignant tale that will leave you breathless with its clarity and candor. It is truly a story to be loved, shared, treasured and read many times over. --Dorothy Randall Gray, author of Soul Between the Lines: Freeing Your Creative Spirit Through Writing

Sheila Weinstein's voice is true and unique. Her story is both her own, and in many ways, one that resonates as that of many. Moving to the Center of the Bed is a wise and beautifully wrought memoir that will long linger in every reader's mind. --Jonathon Lazear, author of The Man Who Mistook His Job for a Life
