and Susan are very different women with one important
thing in common -- breast cancer. Susan, a two-year survivor,
has already been through treatment; for Lara, it is just
beginning. When they "meet" over the Internet,
a valuable friendship is born. Corresponding only through
e-mails, they share the most intimate details about their
husbands and children; their fear and joy; their daily
ups and downs; and their deepest desires. Helping each
other with laughter and tears, Lara and Susan build a
bond that will ring true to anyone who has ever faced
adversity with the support of a treasured friend.
Based on her own experience with breast cancer, Laney
Katz Becker gives readers both a novel that celebrates
the special bond of female friendship and an insider's
look at dealing with breast cancer.
