9783952420508: From Dust to Dust and a Lifetime in Between

«Fantastic. A must to read! Full of feelings... I love the end!» by Goodreads review «This book is utterly amazing.» by book blogger Keenly Kristin «I found myself turning each page faster and faster to find out what happened next.» by book blogger Futures An inspiring true story that just had to be told. From Dust to Dust and a Lifetime in Between is the story of an incredible, ordinary life. Perhaps made all the more incredible because it was so ordinary. Devoted grandmother Mollie Cooke always dreamed of writing her own eventful life story – but sadly dementia robbed her of the opportunity. Now in a touching final act of kindness Mollie’s beloved granddaughter Katherine has finally published her biography for her. The result is an eventful life story filled with love, the unspeakable anguish of losing her loved ones and finally mastering her life with Alzheimer. Growing up in a sheltered dream world in a little English town called Church Stretton, falling in love and getting married. That’s the way it should be, a future life that every little girl dreams of. A constant line, a perfect path to follow. That’s how all began, shortly before the 1920’s. But that’s not how life is, is it? Life’s not always fair, and takes turns that are not understandable. And so it was that the first plunge into the deepest dark wasn’t far off. An icy cold blizzard hit me, leaving a trail of devastation, only to move on without any explanation. Life didn’t let me go, and getting back to my feet rewarded me with the greatest gift. Rocketing up, I touched the highest mountaintops of love. But life doesn’t stand still and moments cannot be frozen. It moves on and tells its own tale. It wasn’t long before I encountered the next fall. This is my story. This is Mollie’s story. Our yesterday’s fortune doesn’t belong to us anymore and what’s to come tomorrow isn’t ours yet. It’s only the now that is ours for a short moment.

About the Author:

A true story inspired Katherine Anne Lee to take up professional writing. From Dust to Dust and a Lifetime in Between is her first novel about a dramatic life story taking place in Church Stretton, England. It's a time journey starting in the 1920ies and ending 96 years later. The story touches hearts, makes space to feel and puts topics like cancer and dementia in a never seen perspective. The unique flavor of Pimientos de Padron peppers inspired Katherine's 2nd novel ‘The Life and Dreams of Pimientos de Padrón’. The book charts the journey of six peppers from when they’re first sown in a Spanish field to being transported to exciting vibrant cities and ending their life on a table thousands of miles away. The fun tale recreates the highs and lows of their short life and questions how they feel along the way. Katherine hopes the book will act as a subtle prompt to readers, inviting them to think about their dreams and hopes and how they’ll achieve them.
