In the 1970s, Laurel Lee gave us Walking Through the Fire, an enchanting hospital journal of her battle against Hodgkin’s Disease. In the 1980s her Signs of Spring, Mourning Into Dancing and Godspeed were published. Nearly a half million copies of these books were sold in the United States and throughout fifty other countries.

In 1977 her first book, Walking Through the Fire, appeared with much critical acclaim and good sales. The book was subsequently made into a television movie that aired nationally in prime time. In 1975, six months pregnant, Laurel Lee discovered that she had Hodgkin's Disease, a severe though potentially curable form of cancer. Her physicians all recommended that she have an abortion followed by immediate intensive radiation and chemotherapy. Laurel refused, limiting severely the therapy that could be given her prior to the birth of the child.

Walking Through Fire is the twelfth studio album by the Canadian rock band April Wine, released in 1985 (see 1985 in music). The album was apparently not released until 1986 in the band's native Canada.

User reviews
I first read this book in the late 1970's and it had a huge impact on my life. I had recently lost my beloved and very young husband and was a young widow and mother. Laurel Lee writes in such a way that I was continually delighted, amazed and touched deeply. Her story is profound and painful, but her words are full of life and hope while still acknowledging the pain. She writes with such ease that at times I would get through a chapter in practically one breath, and go right back and read it again. Now all these years later I have been facing my own health issues. Feeling quite discouraged and very tired, I thought of this little book and was overjoyed to find a copy again. Laurel shares the same faith as I do, but in her book she never hits you over the head with 'religion' but rather points a light on her deep relationship with God. This book is just what I need again, at this time in my life. I believe this little book could be a beacon to many who are going through painful, frightening, challenging or sorrowful times. It is a beautiful story, and a true one as well.

This moving story of faith, courage and hope is not to be missed. I first read it when it was newly published, and re-read it recently after 40+ years and it is still as compelling, encouraging and filled with hope as it was the first day I read it.
I first read this book from the school library as a teenager, living in Portland. I followed her, mourned with her and rejoiced with her.
I was sorry to read her obituary recently but discovered that she had led a blessed life. I just knew she had to be part of my own library.
A small journal packed with inspiration and hope in the midst of adversity. This book has been out of print for a number of years, but I still purchase copies (via Amazon) to give to people who are struggling with life's heavy burdens. I personally read it at least once each year to give me a better perspective of my own situation. You cannot help but be touched and uplifted by this beautiful composition.
I read this many years ago when it first came out and never forgot about it. Over the years it has come up several times with different groups and now I want to share it with my daughter and daughter-in-laws. What a story, a true story! A story of faith that we can all learn from. I will read it again, too. This is an "I can't put it down" book.
Having survived cancer myself, I found some of the passages difficult to read, simply because I could relate to her experience. It is a wonderful book, though, and I admire her for sharing herself in this way.
A very inspirational little book! I have given many of these away to people battling cancer. Wonderful little book. I love it.
I ordered this book for my wife as she had read it years ago, but lost her copy. She thoroughly enjoyed reading this book the second time around, and would recommend it to anyone interested in a great story.
