Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 000744592X, Paperback)If you could write your own happy ending, what would you say? This is the story of Emma's life. For three long years, she has battled with illness, enduring everything with bravery and always with hope. Then one day Emma is told that they've reached the end of the road. While her family and friends are thrown into denial, anger and grief, Emma suddenly realises that with so much left undone, she must find a way to live the life she has always dreamed of. This is a story about happy endings. So Emma begins to write the story of the life she has always wanted to live and something miraculous starts to happen. As her body starts to weaken, the lines between fiction and reality start to blur and her story takes on a life of its own. As the story gains in strength, Emma, and those who cherish her, discover that even in death, there is life.
