Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983937869, Paperback)A BRAVE AND VIVIDLY RENDERED memoir: when life and death collide, one young woman discovers how to hold both past and present at once⎯ ultimately lifting herself by bold living and a second chance at love.
Both Sides Now hinges on the day when Nancy Sharp delivered premature twins and learned that her husband's cancer had returned after eighteen months in remission. Set in New York City where the couple lived happily until Brett's shocking diagnosis in 1998, the story moves back in time through Nancy and her husband's courtship and marriage⎯and forward through Brett's death, when the twins were two and a half, he was not-quite forty, and Nancy was thirty-seven.
When life hands you the unthinkable, you must find new ways to see. Such is the ground on which Nancy rebuilt her world. She did so in Denver, Colorado after a chance conversation with a friend convinced her to take the leap of faith she needed. She'd long been drawn to the sturdiness of the Rocky Mountains and the bounty of their view. Telling as a whisper, the mountains offered her promise and possibility. And so she came with her five-year-old twins, never expecting to find love again in the pages of a magazine. This is a story of real courage and unexpected joy. It is also a story about Steve, Nancy's second husband, a widower with two children, and of the surprising turns life takes when blending two families torn by loss. Both Sides Now promises hard-won wisdom, a gift for those looking to rise again: The past is simply part of our story, but not the whole story.
