This is an extremely moving book which deals with the difficult issue of coping with impending death for the sick person and for their family and friends. Poppy is only 32, an army wife dreaming of setting up a family business once Martin leaves the forces. They have two young children. Poppy is diagnosed with inoperable breast cancer. She copes, she has to, but as always with this fabulous author, Amanda Prowse, she describes human situations and emotions with amazing insight and complete honesty. She is a very talented author indeed, you should read her entire catalogue. Highly recommended.
How do you say goodbye to your family for the last time? Poppy Day is looking forward to her best year yet. She's thirty-two, married to her childhood sweetheart, and a full-time mum of two gorgeous children. She loves her clean little house in the countryside - a far cry from the London estate where she grew up. Her husband Mart, a soldier, has just returned safe and sound from his latest tour. But Poppy is so busy caring for others, she hasn't noticed the fatigue in her body, or the menacing lump growing on her breast. If there's anyone strong and deserving enough to defeat cancer it's Poppy. After all, she's fought harder battles than this. But does life really work like that? This is the heart-wrenching new bestseller from Amanda Prowse.
'You don't need to have read Amanda Prowse's highly acclaimed Poppy Day to fall in love with this sequel ... prepare to work your way through as many tissues as pages'
'Prowse is a warmly accessible but subtle writer and handles her explosive subject with delicate skill ... 'Deeply moving' and 'inspiring' are terms often lavished on the underwhelming, but here they are understatements' Daily Mail
