Review “Memoirs of loss and survival are rather common, but what sets this one apart is Bills’ extraordinary perceptiveness and writing talent. . . . A keeper of a book by a talented author.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred review“Achingly beautiful.”―Barbara Hesselman Kautz, MSN, RN, author of When I Die I’m Going to Heaven ‘Cause I Spent My Time in Hell: A Memoir of My Year as an Army Nurse in Vietnam “Nancy’s voice in The Red Ribbon is direct and beautifully sustained right through to the end, and her language, both fresh and arresting, documents the fragility such a blow inflicts; her work is infused with pain and grace moving into emotional country most fear to explore. She shares generously the truth of her experience, and the reader is stunned, brought to tears, and needs to be reminded to breathe. Her memoir is an amazing accomplishment offering help and hope to others suffering losses. Nancy’s memoir reveals a brave effort to stay focused and steady when facing an ultimate horror. The Red Ribbon is the product of a years-long struggle for meaning, the gradual construction of her myth, and a clear vision of an experience fully understood in the broader human context. It is a triple whammy.”―Walden S.
