Praise For Ilse

Sharing The Treasures

 “As a believer in the concept that ‘as long as we have breath we have a purpose’ it is no accident that Ilse’ brilliance and resiliency has been revealed through an unexpected hurdle late in life. Her beautifully written book will inspire you to clutch life, and all that it offers for what it can teach us.”

 “Coco Chanel once said, ‘Elegance is refusal.’ I have always admired Ilse’ extreme poise when faced with “emotionally” charged and difficult life situations.  When she found herself facing the biggest challenge of her life, she refused to give up. Her story is proof that having an optimistic attitude can impact the outcome. Well done.”
