How can you live when you’re dying? That’s exactly what a wife and mom with a countdown clock would like to know.

Carolina Burns faces words no one wants to hear. She’s dying.

She fights for her final year on earth—until she chooses to simply live. Her husband, Ben, and their eleven-year-old daughter, Rachael, must also accept her diagnosis. Their faith will be tested, and their bravery tried.

Carolina writes letters to Rachael for all the life events she’ll miss and spends every waking moment with her loved ones or in the garden where she coaxes beauty from the Georgia soil. Through it all, the Burns family uncovers how to embrace this good thing—life.

Discover the beauty of a lasting legacy through this love story that will break your heart while building you up.

Joy's technical background includes more than two decades of professional writing and editing. Ongoing training in writing, publishing, business and counseling enables her to package soul-filled stories for her readers. An award-winning, multi-genre Indie Author, Joy believes extraordinary things await her characters and their tales.Despite a fondness for her roles as author, editor, podcaster and speaker, Joy is a hobbit at heart with Bilbo's zeal for mountains. She enjoys a life of quiet stillness with her husband, two children, dog and cat and more books than she's willing to count. When daily homeschool lessons are complete, she eagerly prepares for teatime before writing your next favorite story.

RACHAEL RITCHEY is a dreamer who believes in the resilience of the human spirit. She never wants to forget we are not what has happened to us or what we've done. She believes we are deep wells of compassion and strength, and when unleashed, these subtle superpowers can change the world, even if only just one person at a time. She writes with an eye toward exemplifying these attributes. Her YA fiction reflects these qualities with daring adventure and sweet romance that almost anyone can enjoy. Rachael lives in Spokane, WA with her husband, kids, and their dog named Hashtag.
