Additional Books by Nancy Sharp

"I adore Nancy's story because it speaks to something so important to being healthy, which is resilience. Nancy could have become stuck in her sadness but decided to move forward instead. That takes courage, which can be scary, but it can really contribute to the good life."
Dr. Oz
