An interesting read about an adventurous woman who must undergo a heart transplant. She continues mountain climbing after her transplant.

I enjoyed finding out about her transplant experience as I have a friend whose daughter is currently awaiting a transplant. I can't imagine climbing the mountains that she did after her experience.

An amazing story that has to be shared. Challenge, romance, triumph, adventure... It has it all. This is a great read that spans all interests, not just those who have or are dealing with an illness. I Highly recommend it.

This is an interesting read. I enjoyed the learning about the heart and how it operates, either normally or transplanted. I also enjoyed the strength and determination the author had. She's an incredible woman.

I enjoyed the triumph over tragedy theme of this book. I met the author recently and was very inspired by her. Her book is educational, uplifting and REAL.
