I laughed, I cried, and I felt every emotion in between. This book about a household advice columnist coming to terms with an end-of-life cancer diagnosis was, for me, a realistic portrayal of what it must be like to face it. She's also a wife, mother, friend, neighbour, and has a history she needs to comes to terms with. It may not be for everyone but it was for me.

Provides an interesting aspect to feelings brought about by a cancer diagnosis. Not a book for everyone.

I loved this book, perhaps because I related so well to it..........it touched me deeply. I would like to find more books by this author.

I couldn't get into this one.
It just seemed to drag on.
