's review

really liked it

Despite the age difference, a lot of the experience in this book resonated with me - trying to get on with life with the unknown’ hanging over your head - when will the cancer come back, how far/fast will it spread, have I got months or years? I found it very readable ... I struggled a bit with the emphasis on positivity (I think we need more space to grieve, but also, yes, we don’t want to get stuck), and the focus on herbal etc remedies (which the author says she knows many people will recognise as woo woo but wants to give herself every chance) - it’s something I wish there was more research into rather than oncologists saying ‘oh well, it won’t do any harm’ (but it does cost (time/£) and plays upon the fears of those who have been made vulnerable by incurable Illness).
