When Maureen Twomey was only thirty-three years old, she experienced a massive stroke-one that took away her ability to read, write, walk, and even speak (AAAAAAAHHH!!). Well, she wasn't about to go down without a fight. In Before, Afdre and After, Twomey offers a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes comical, and ultimately inspiring glimpse at what it is to lose everything when you're supposed to be in the prime of your life-and what it takes to get it back, piece by tiny piece.

From the Author:

maureentwomey.wordpress.com:)*****************************Readersfavorite.com/book-review/before-afdre-and-afterReviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite:

"... Maureen Twomey's nonfiction memoir, Before, Afdre, and After: (My stroke...oh what fun), is written by a wryly funny and brutally honest survivor whose message grabs the reader on the first page and doesn't let go until she finally means it when she says, "the end."...This is a most impressive and moving memoir about a catastrophic injury and the way one brilliant, funny and very resilient person climbed her way back towards a full recovery with lots of help from the friends and family who were with her every step of the way. Before, Afdre, and After: (My stroke...oh what fun) is most highly recommended."(Five stars)-----------------------------------------------------------Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite:" ... I expected the book to be a tear jerker ... but the author made it witty and humorous too. The reader can feel the emotions Maureen felt, understand the struggle she had with her mind and body. You cannot help but laugh and cry with her throughout her journey. It truly deserves five stars and more for writing such a phenomenal journey of courage."
