Triumph, Not Tragedy: Where the Sun Don't Shine Published by Outskirts Press.

Hendersonville, TN, November 28, 2011 --( Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Where the Sun Don't Shine: A Compelling Exploration of Survival and Self-Image by Bonnie Hartle.

The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

“Aside from the magnitude of the learning opportunity, the story itself is a compelling read. With enough twists and turns to rival an edge-of-your-seat novel, the pages here fairly boil with a mixture of sheer drama and the unexpected, making it one of those hard-to-put-down books that come along once in a very long while.” - from the Foreword by Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God

In 1983, Bonnie Hartle left her small hometown in western Pennsylvania to move to country music's most famous destination: Nashville, Tennessee. Brimming with hope and confidence, and with the lifelong love and nurturing of her supportive parents behind her, Bonnie went in search of stardom. But although she worked with some of country music's most famous artists, Bonnie's big break never came. She found herself in an adequate but not inspiring position at a newspaper and began a struggle to reinvent her life… a struggle that came with a high cost, as she lost herself in the vicious cycle of an unhealthy codependent relationship.

When that relationship ended, Bonnie was forced down to her lowest ebb -- or so she thought. Emotionally and physically exhausted, Bonnie knew something was wrong, but she never dreamed how much a diagnosis of colorectal cancer would change her life… for the better. Burdened with a potentially fatal disease at the age of thirty-nine, Bonnie had to find out what she was really made of.

Bonnie's story isn't just an inspirational story of personal triumph - it offers compassionate lessons for anyone who is facing a dark night of the soul. She explains what happens with a diagnosis of colon cancer and how it affects the soul as well as the body. Honest and down-to-earth, with a warm, conversational voice, Bonnie tells it like it is about the realities of living with cancer, the shock and grief of dealing with multiple personal crises in a short period of time, and the miracles of reaching for healing and hope even when life seems impossible to endure. Her experiences remind readers that they, too, can seek an open line of communication with God and find the spiritual strength to survive, and even discover beauty and meaning in the midst of crisis and overwhelming loss.

This book delivers a clear, matter-of-fact message that all anguish, including sickness, can be transformed and overcome with the right attitude and faith in God. If someone has been diagnosed with cancer…if one has lost a beloved pet in a time of crisis…if one has buried a parent who was not only a hero, but a best friend…if one has endured an emotionally devastating and bitter end to a relationship…if one has felt lost, empty, hopeless, and yearning for answers… this is the book. Bonnie Hartle and her remarkable journey have something to give to you.
