A Memoir

An inspiring true story of the women in one family and their fight against cancer that Patricia Wood, author of "Lottery," calls "utterly breathtaking."
At thirty-two, Amy Boesky had it all: a wonderful new man in her life, a great job, and the (nearly) perfect home. For once, she was almost able to shake the terrible fear that had gripped her for as long as she could remember.
Women in her family had always died young-from cancer-and she and her sisters were previvors growing up in time's shadow. But rather than dwelling on fear, Amy wanted to plan for a new baby and live her life. In "What We Have," Amy shares a transformative year in her family's life and invites readers to join in their joy, laughter, and grief.
