ISBN: 9781842235881

How would you react if you were diagnosed with terminal cancer? How would you feel? This is the situation for Emer Dorgan, a librarian in her fifties who has been looking forward to early retirement and the freedom to pursue her hobbies and dreams. Coming to terms with the awful prognosis is Emer s biggest challenge but it also permeates the lives of those who love her. Together they embark on a turbulent, irreverent but ultimately heart-warming roller-coaster ride as Emer lives out her last days.

There is still so much life to be lived: a sentimental journey, a house to be renovated, an encounter with a blast from the past, and a new life to be brought into the world by her beloved American niece Avril who comes to stay with her.And what of reconciliation? For this is a family rent apart by tragedy and a horrific secret concerning the violent death of Avril s mother many years before.Can Emer s approaching death work miracles?How you die is as important as how you live.
