Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dust wrapper a little ruffled at the edges.
Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Caron Keating was forty-one when she died, leaving behind two young sons, Charlie and Gabriel. A few weeks after Gabriel was born — and her own father died — Caron found a lump in her breast. Gloria knew, at that moment, that all their lives would change for ever. The next seven years of Caron’s life, and her family’s, became a quest for recovery that ultimately took them across the world. They became experts in dealing with the illness and its treatment, both conventional and alternative. All the while Caron was living in the public eye and keeping her own, devastating secret. The loss of a loved one is the most terrible thing to contemplate. But all of us will have to face it at some point in our lives. Although Caron lost her battle with cancer, this isn’t a sad book. Told by Gloria, with extracts from Caron’s own diaries, it’s an inspirational and honest account of how Caron, Gloria and the whole family faced and coped with illness; it’s a celebration of an unbreakable mother daughter relationship and how that relationship withstood the strain of Caron’s illness. And above all it’s a book to commemorate a spirited, magical woman. A woman who loved life and fought to hold on to it.”
