Written by an award winning math and science writer and contributing editor to Outside Magazine

This memoir recounts Julie Rehmeyer’s journey to health. With only her scientific savvy, investigative journalism skills, and dog, Frances, to rely on, Rehmeyer carved out her own path to wellness – and uncovered how shocking scientific neglect and misconduct had forced her and millions of others to go it alone. In stunning prose, she describes how her illness transformed her understanding of science, medicine, and spirituality. Through the Shadowlands brings scientific authority to a misunderstood disease and spins an incredible and compelling story of tenacity, resourcefulness, acceptance, and love.
