An Emmy-award winning writer's moving and inspirational memoir exploring what we can learn about life from a brush with death.

We all face moments that bring us to our knees: heartbreak, trauma, illness. When things don't go to plan this is the book to reach for - an inspirational memoir about what the struggle to survive teaches us about how to live.At just twenty-two, Suleika Jaouad was diagnosed with leukemia and given a 35 per cent chance of survival. For five years her world comprised four white walls, a hospital bed, fluorescent lights, tubes and wires. She became patient 5624.

At twenty-seven, and celebrating her first year of remission, Suleika realized that, having survived, she had no idea how to live. And so she set out to meet some of the strangers who had written to her about their experiences of life, death, healing and recovery in response to her Emmy-Award winning New York Times column, 'Life Interrupted'. Between Two Kingdoms is the result. Drawing on Suleika's TED Talk, now with 3.5 million views, it illuminates universal questions about how we live, mourn, heal, grow up and begin again.
