Story of how three friends Karen,Connie and Tina battle 3 differents types of cancer.
Makes you stop and think about living life because nothing is promised. A must read. A good novel on making the reader aware of cancer. No Regrets is about having Faith and love in the lord.

Once I picked up this book I could not stop reading. The book cried out to be read. There was so many angles to the story it made you cry out for more. This book had you thinking every time you learnt about another mishap. The ending was not what I was expecting. This book left one with a lot to think about.

What a moving and motivating book! I thoroughly enjoyed my glimpse into the lives of Johnny and Karen Clark, Tyrone and Connie and Tina. This book is multi faceted and I interpreted it on many levels. There is the story of love, the story of triumph over illness, the renewing of faith in God and heartache. All three of the women, Karen, Connie and Tina suffer from cancer in one form or the other. Johnny and Tyrone have been best friends for a number of years and the friendship they've forged has grown deeper with the illnesses of their wives. Johnny struggles with faithfulness as he reacts to his Karen's seeming rejection of him. His interpretation of her reaction makes him feel that her love is wavering. Tyrone, every bit as much a playboy as Johnny, turns completely toward his wife, his love ever increasing. Tina has become cynical of love and has become a self confessed male basher after her husband left her due to her cancer.
As the story progresses, feelings are examined from a lot of different viewpoints. Johnny and Karen have children. Their reaction to their mother's cancer is explored. Johnny struggled with working to provide for his family and his lack of time spent with the family he worked so hard for. Tyrone, the pillar for Connie, struggled with keeping it together. Connie, the pillar for Tyrone, showed great effort in making the time they had together memorable. Tina wrestled with her cancerous feelings. Although the disease had been removed from her body, her feelings of anger were just as consuming.
No Regrets isn't just centered on the effects a serious illness can have on family, but really explores faith. Johnny could care less about religion. It's all right for his wife to be so involved and for his children, but church isn't high on his list of priorities. As the story progresses, priorities shift, and Johnny is renewed. Connie, the quiet and virtuous woman, is instrumental in demonstrating awe-inspiring faith in times of adversity. I Corinthians 13:13 states: And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. This was truly demonstrated in this inspiring book.

When one reads this book, there are so many different messages one can take. It's about faith, forgiveness, trust, and the power of prayer, belief in God among other messages. For me the messages that stood out most were the Power of Prayer and Faith.
The premise of the book was that there were 3 women who had or have cancer and how they dealt with their diagnosis and how strong they were in their Faith. Tina was bitter especially since her husband walked out on her during her cancer. Connie was accepting of what God had allowed to happen in her life. She was living life in full and not worrying about tomorrow. She had complete faith that God could heal her and if He didn't then she would be spending eternity with Him, in a new body, free of Cancer.
Karen the protagonist in the book had her belief in the Lord and went to Church, but her Faith was weak. Her cancer had re occurred and her marriage was falling apart. During a routine hospitalization and treatment, Karen lost her will to live and ends up in a coma. With the possibility of losing Karen, her husband, Johnny began to see that being married to her was not as bad as he thought. Though being sick, Karen had been a great helpmate to him, and he had not appreciated her. When the doctors had done all they could, the next thing was to have a prayer session. The Church Mother and her prayer warriors then took over. The power of these praying women proved to be the best medicine, not only for the physical healing, but spiritual awakening for Johnny.
It is my feeling that an author really does their job when they can evoke an array of emotions from the reader. I did not think I would like Karen initially, but after understanding what she was going through, I began to have empathy for her. I was cheering for the ladies triumphs and crying during their trials. This book is a must read for anyone who has or have a illness, knows someone in this predicament, or just need to know that God does answer prayers. Highly recommended.
