The Camouflaged Heart by Susie Guckin is about her journey into an accident, moving through recovery, and the long path to come out of it that demanded dedication and perseverance. It begins with a brief background of the traumatic happenings, describes the medical attention she received, and explains how she fought her way out following a seven-step curing process. How she got help from her friends and neighbors, how her involvement in conducting piano lessons for someone helped her, and how the healing process was accentuated by her participation in daily chores of life and living are included.

The Camouflaged Heart by Susie Guckin is about the return to normalcy after a head injury. Having sustained a head injury, I can relate to all that she tells about feelings. The wonder I used to feel when someone noticed inappropriate motor movements with me, or when I did things right, or the shock I felt when people found it hard to understand what I was saying, and other difficulties experienced during the healing years are presented here beautifully. The professional help provided during the recovery and the techniques used to bring the victim back to normalcy make interesting reading. Her dealings with the military and the presentation of healing techniques to soldiers are some of the high points of this book. An excellent read; the author’s discerning approach, involvement with fellow humans, and commendable intelligence are visible throughout the pages.
