Mended Wings

Author: Jan Cox

ISBN: 978-1-62137-702-3 (softcover)

64 pages

Life is a journey for all of us but sometimes our forward movement gets interrupted by circumstances we can barely comprehend. In this slender volume of poetry, the author moves us from her first diagnosis of cancer through layers of healing to a rebirth of health, inner joy, gratitude and renewal. Her poems reveal an inner being that travels through disbelief and fear to acceptance and celebration. In a prose Afterword, she tells a little more about her journey through two separate cancers between 2002 and 2007. She also leaves the reader with some practical information which has helped her in her own recovery and survival.



Jan Cox has enjoyed writing since childhood. She has kept both life and dream journals for well over 40 years and has written poetry most of her adult life. She has honed her writing skills through college and adult classes and writing groups. Her non-fiction has been published in Mountain Valley Living Magazine based in northern California, and her poetry in Kotasi Journals 1 and 2 and in the Plumas Arts yearly are calendars. Before beginning the current book, she wrote an Arts column in the Chester Progressive newspaper, Chester, California. She has read her poetry at local Words and Music evenings. If writing is her first love, photography is her second. Along with Mended Wings, she has self-published two books containing both her photographs and her poems.
