On page eight Emma says to her consultant "so I'm dying". She has spent nearly five years fighting cancer and discovered she is not winning. How she reacts is wonderful to read. She starts writing a novel and 'lives again' through that novel. There is love, heartache, friendship, devotion and pain throughout but in the end this is an uplifting tale of a very brave 29-year old, wonderfully supported by those around her. Very touching.

If you like Amanda Brooke you might also like to read books by Liane Moriarty, Suzanne Bugler and Audrey Niffenegger.

Synopsis

Another Way to Fall by Amanda Brooke

What would you do if you could write the story of your life? After battling a brain tumour twenty-nine year old Emma thinks she is in the clear, but her world comes crashing down around her when she is told her fight was in vain, and there is nothing more the doctors can do. Realising that she won't now have time to achieve the things she dreamed of, Emma decides to write her perfect life in a story. She imagines all the things she would have done, the places she would have seen, the husband she would have shared her life with and the family they would have raised. And, mysteriously, as she writes her story, she starts to notice that some of her dreams seem to be coming true. Now with a real love in her life, and her fading hope burning brighter, reality and fiction start to become blurred.
