This is the story of courage in the face of an unrelenting adversary. This is the story of two women, a daughter and a mother, in a daily struggle to find a cure for a malicious cancer whilst living an apparently normal day-to-day life. One woman, the mother who knew that there was no cure, and the other woman, daughter Carrie, found hope in a possible miraculous, 11th hour rescue and so lived in the denial of death. Carrie was brave in the face of this second invasive incursion, 25 years in remission after the first attack. Carrie, the single mother of two teen-age children, attempted to create a normal life for her children, driving them to school on wintry mornings, cooking them their favorite meals. As the disease progressed, she could not continue the charade of normalcy. They did not know what they knew, but they knew. Their once beautiful mother was disappearing before their eyes. They left Hawaii, moved from the warmth and freedom of an island life to the wintry cold of Massachusetts. They moved in with Nana, Carrie’s mother, now in her early eighties. She was the ballast. She provided for her wounded daughter and her confused, talented grandchildren. There was anger, and there was singing. There was fun and an army of nurses who entered the house to minister to Carrie. There was joy and any talk of possible tragedy was forbidden. Above all, there was Carrie, a shining light. With an Afterword by Dr Mark Hyman.

About the Author:

Ruth Sidranksy was born in Brooklyn to two profoundly deaf parents. Her first language was Sign, and she translated the world’s sounds for her parents throughout their lives. In 1990, Sidransky wrote In Silence, a memoir of her life among the world of the Deaf. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, the New York Times called it “...a great act of love.” Sidranksy has appeared on Good Morning, America, NPR and throughout the United States and Canada, speaking on behalf of American Sign and its legitimacy as a distinct and singular language. Currently in her 9th decade, Ruth Sidransky published three books in 2014: A Woman’s Primer, a look at the qualities women need to survive and thrive; Bravo Carrie, her memoir of her adult daughter’s struggle with cancer, and Reparations, a novel about Europe just after World War II. Sidransky divides her time between Lenox, Massachusetts and southern Florida.
