Mosaic Heart: Pieces of an Unfinished Life by Donna Mazzitelli is a moving and optimistic memoir. It is beautifully written. The cover is magnificent and perfectly conveys the messages we find in this book of self-discovery. Donna gratefully but also generously shares with us her healing path, her deepest reflections, honestly, and is at the same time hopeful. Donna’s work is not like others; it is about the healing process and about finding your true self. It is about getting better through illness!
Mosaic Heart is the story of Donna, of how she got cancer in her fifties and fought it as an enemy, which it was, of course. But, in the long term, this terrible illness led her to make changes and become who she was meant to be. This magnificent story will definitely help, inspire, and support people with cancer but also others, such as myself. Indeed, the story makes you think about your life, or rethink it in depth. It relates how, through being so ill, the author discovers - step by step - who she really is, what actually matters and what to do with the rest of her life. This is one of my favorite quotes from this amazing opus: “Healing requires a willingness to look at the pieces and know them, to understand their messages, and to take in how they can serve me and my life today.” This is a must-read for all! Thank you for sharing such a gem, Donna Mazzitelli!
