NASHUA, N. H. – Lyme disease is a terrifying, devastating, often depressing illness and infectious disease. That is why author and “Lyme Whisperer” (published by Xlibris) Joy Pelletier Devins brings hope and humor to others during their dark journey. Her book reminds Lyme disease sufferers and shows them that defiance is also infectious.

In “Lyme Whisperer: The Secret's Out,” Devins let readers in on her “secret” conversations or “whispers” with Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme. Her candid account gives a vivid look into the life and mind of a patient, mom, and boss with Lyme; thus sharing a journey filled with hope, humor and defiance.

“There is so much negativity surrounding Lyme—politics, controversies, poor diagnostics, lack of research, horror stories,” Devins on why she wrote her story, “That it is important they receive a positive message for once.

For readers who ever wondered how Borrelia could be compared to the White Witch from “The Chronicles of Narnia,” the transformer Megatron, the serpent monster from “Harry Potter,” Snow White's apple, a Disney World roller-coaster ride, “The Perfect Storm,” a “World War Z” zombie, or “Gone with the Wind,” then the book by the “Lyme Whisperer” is for them.
