Abstract:

"In 1975, Grace Gawler had a promising future. A brilliant young vet nurse planning to study veterinary medicine, she received a lucrative modelling offer, which would have paind her university fees. Concurrently, her boyfriend lost his leg to bone cancer. Grace was at a vital choice point, either pursue glamorous, well-paid modelling work, while studying to become a vet, or support her boyfriend through his dying months. The latter meant foregoing her personal and financial independence, and lifelong dreams of becoming a vet. Grace chose to support Ian. Believing that his cancer was curable, she directed her passion into his healing, dedicating 18 hour days focussing on juicing, massages, and pain management, whilst researching every cure imaginable. With just a few weeks to live, Ian proposed. Grace accepted, taking him to the Philippines for a healing honeymoon, the beginning of a long road to recovery."--Back cover.
