Abstract:

Facing a mastectomy twenty years ago, Geralyn Lucas put on red lipstick before entering the operating room to show everyone that she planned to come out the bold and daring woman she never thought she could be. At twenty-seven, she didn't realize how much her single act of courage would connect with women and endear her to breast cancer survivors across the globe. In Then Came Life, Geralyn is back with the same fearless attitude, exploring what it means to survive cancer, only to face new challenges. When she was fighting cancer, Geralyn prayed she would live long enough to get wrinkles. Now in her mid-forties, she's the mother of two miracle babies, one who's grown into a mean tween with a fierce eye-roll and the other a tornado of little-boy energy who refuses to play by his preschool's rules. Her storybook romance has become couples therapy with a grumpy prince, the job she loves moves across the country without her, and her hard-won wrinkles just make her long for Botox. Then Came Life reminds readers to always find a way to turn the mundane in life into a miracle.
