Thoughtfully written story about a twenty-seven year old married student who finds her breast cancer has returned with a vengeance. Colleen Oakley takes you on a fevered journey where Daisy Richmond must deal with her diagnosis and the devastation it wreaks on both her and her loved ones lives. Easily read in one evening, it's a touching book about the varied ways we love; friendships, mother-daughter, husband-wives and what we are willing to do for love. Daisy is a micro manager and decides to find someone to take care of her husband once she is gone. This is a story about loving enough to enjoy the moment, to stop our busy lives and just live. It's also about what the footprints we leave behind. Well written, touching and sweet, I am happy I got to know Daisy, if only for the few hundred pages of her story. She will live on in my imagination for a long time to come.
