'The saying goes that time heals. I guess that's partly true. But time also makes you more aware of what has been lost. We find new points of reflection, like lookouts that offer fresh perspectives on a valley you've walked through or gazed at many times. From one vantage point the valley is a glorious feat of nature. From another, there are only chasms, eerie black pools of water and the unknown.'

Heidi's life will never be the same after her husband Pete is diagnosed with blood cancer. Along with their two daughters, the family must face their worst fear: that Pete could die.

A Single Lifeline is a love story that takes the reader through the richness and extremes of a relationship between two people and their children during cancer treatment and afterwards, when there is no certainty about what the future will hold. A cure is one thing. But what about survival? No-one in Heidi's family can pick up where they left off. Pete's treatment ends … but so much is just beginning.
