Description: Diagnosis: breast cancer. Prognosis: terminal. Life: only beginning. Her diamond caught the sun’s rays and refracted glittered light about the room. She’d asked herself again and again: How could she be so blessed? Partner at a prestigious law firm, engaged to the man of her dreams . . . there was no doubt. God had smiled on Kendra Woods. But the moment Kendra is diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, her world collapses. Within days, Derek backs out of the wedding and the firm suggests a leave of absence during her treatment. Of all the roles Kendra has played over the years—daughter, sister, friend, student, attorney, bride-to-be—cancer patient seems the most unwelcome in the world. When her path crosses with youth pastor Lance Alexander, Kendra sees only the troublemaker she knew in high school. But Lance could prove an unexpected spark. In the darkness that covers her, will Kendra be able to embrace a glimmer of hope?
My Review: I put off reading this book because of the content. However, I was touched by the depth in which this book went into the pain of someone that is dying of cancer would or might suffer. She did so without making it grim or horrible. The story is a of a touching love story, but also one of redemption. Kendra had everything, yet realized she would give it all for longer to live. This story hits some hard hitting topics of death, infidelity, forgiveness, redemption and love. I enjoyed the story, even with the subject matter and was sorry I put it off so long! This book does contain some mentions of things that make it an adult or more mature teen.
