How do you deal with your partner's terminal diagnosis? This book takes the reader on a journey from shock and later grief to moving on. There is hope after a partner's death. For me moving on took the form of settling in Quito, Ecuador on my own and solo travelling to other parts of South America.

A true inspiration for those who need a new hope!

Barbara Webb's memoir From Cornwall to the Andes is not only a grief story of a woman who lost to a cancer her beloved husband, Richard, but a story of a unique woman who can offer a new hope to anyone with a light of inspiration to build a future without regrets.

A deeply personal account of a journey through grief. reading this book helped me understand how to better support friends who are grieving. I loved the snatches of Cornish scenery and life in South America.
Although a short book is a great read that ended too soon.

'From Cornwall to the Andes' by Barbara M Webb, reviewed by Elizabeth O'Neill author of 'The Killing of John, John and John'

From Cornwall to the Andes is the story of one woman’s struggle with her husband’s diagnosis of cancer, his suffering and subsequent death. It is also the story of how she decided to live her life after the death of the man she loved dearly.
Both heartbreaking and inspirational, I cried in parts and shouted ‘go girl!’ in others.
Barbara Webb displayed great courage and strength in her actions and in sharing her account. I truly believe that this book has the potential to help others who have to
