Newly divorced party girl Cara Reid just wants to have fun. Much too young to even be a divorcee, she and her bestie, Miranda, set off to have fun and maybe a few casual hookups and live life. One night at a military bar, Cara meets Riley Forrester, a hot Army soldier who makes her melt with one look of his deep ocean blue eyes. But Riley is only staying the summer in California and then has to go back to Colorado when it’s over. Cara tells herself he’s just a summer fling and is determined to enjoy herself and let him go once the summer is over. But when Riley receives orders he wasn’t expecting, she’s forced to make a decision on whether she’s going to be there for him when he gets back, or move on with her life. What she wasn’t expecting was to fall so hard for the beautiful soldier boy, and now she’s faced with accepting her feelings or letting him go.

DESCRIPTION:

…Sarah’s first encounter with cancer was at the age of sixteen, as she faced

her final school exams before college. She endured ravaging chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Hardly more than a child. she learned from fellow patients about human frailty and indomitable spirit.

SHE ALSO LEARNED SURVIVAL.

But the treatment that saved her from Hodgkin’s disease would later trigger breast cancer in the midst of career, marriage and raising two young daughters. Once again she relied on the heroics of health and nursing teams to support, treat and rebuild her.

As all the old fears of terminal illness came under control, she felt cocooned in a manner symbolised by happy, comforting WORMS ON PARACHUTES that in her anaesthetised dreams cascaded on her hospital bed.

This is more than a story of triumph over adversity. It conveys beyond the hospital wards and specialist departments voices from inside the world’s biggest health service, of patients and staff alike sharing hopes and fears, brutal reality and everyday miracles…

“Incredibly emotional and well-written.” Penguin

“Sarah’s journey and spirit are incredible. Sarah’s writing is from the heart.”

Richard Amos, Division of Radiology, MD Anderson Cancer Centre.
