I picked this book up at the Dollar Tree and then found it on Overdrive to listen to in my car. I had no expectations going into this book since I had no real idea of what it was about.
This is a story about a woman who grew up in a household in which all of the past generations of women on her maternal side have dies early due to cancer. Amy has always known that she was a high risk for ovarian cancer and had a plan to have children and remove her ovaries by a specific time in her life.
This sounds like a morbid book but it really was more about the familial bond and the love and survival skills that each woman in Amy’s family have. Yes, it was heartbreaking but it was also empowering because each woman could decide for herself what the best thing for their family would be.
I liked this book and it was well written and entertaining. I know that sounds weird to say that a book about living with a cancer risk is entertaining but it wasn’t all about that. It was about life.
I gave this book 4 crowns.
