Amber Turk lived with an inoperable brain tumour for 12 months before dying in November 2003 at the age of 27. During her final year she wrote a journal documenting her emotional journey: her hopes, her despair, and finally her desire to leave the pain behind and embrace death.

This absorbing, thought-provoking and inspirational book is a unique window into the private world of a dying person. Compelling reading for students of medicine and other health professionals, Time to Listen will also interest those who consider the broader questions of meaning, spirituality and suffering, especially young people facing their own mortality.

'... this account of a brave young woman facing the greatest challenge of her life will change the lives of any who read her story.' - M/C Reviews
