At the end of this post, you will find my review for the book Every Last Drop by Sarah Robinson, followed by a star rating. Before that though, I will provide the synopsis given on NetGalley. Enjoy!
Description From NetGalley :
Marry the love of my life.
Become a mother.
Write a book.
Number one was complete. I was well on my way to checking off goals two and three, before a cancer diagnosis derailed my plans.
A story meant to chronicle the journey of impending motherhood with wit, became a brutally honest memoir of living life to the fullest.
Make every breath count.
When finally confronted with the knowledge the cancer is terminal, I search for a way to accomplish all the things I wanted to do within my lifetime… when I don’t have a lifetime left.
Every Last Drop is the heartfelt, unflinching, and original story of how when faced with the hardest truth, we finally learn how far we will go to discover who we are before it’s too late.
My Review :
Heartbreaking. Sob-inducing. Empowering. I honestly can’t put into words each of the emotional points hit in this book.
Tessa’s story shattered me. She’s so brave and honest with her life, that it really is an inspiration. I’m not sure that I would have the guts to do what she did. But I hope that I would. I truly believe that she made the bravest choice she could.
Seeing how her life played out, entwined with those closest to her…man, it killed me. Recently having dealt with some health issues of my own, I was facing my own mortality. I’ve mostly recovered, but it shook me to look that in the mirror. I can not imagine having to live the reality of that situation.
I hope that you will read this book, and enjoy it as much as I did. (Even though I cried all the tears.)
