Description

'Gloria Hunniford's daughter, TV presenter Caron Keating, was 34 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Initially she was declared in the clear but the cancer came back, despite her attempts to fight it off with every therapy going. She died aged 41. This is Gloria's account of Caron's life. It is outstanding from the beginning . . . feels painfully truthful but is utterly absorbing. It does make you cry - endlessly. It is about the difficult bond between mothers and daughters . . . about what happens to a family when one of its members gets taken over by a disease. Gloria's honesty in writing this book is extraordinary ... both Caron and Gloria come across as amazingly strong, loving and inspiring characters.' Daily Express`We see Caron as a daughter, a sister, a wife, a friend and a mother - but most of all as a fighter. This is not a story of illness and death rather it's a beautiful, emotional celebration of an extraordinary life that sadly ended far too soon. A beautiful read' Daily Record
