|“Anna is a privilege to read - an extraordinary narration through life, death and beyond. We can only learn from this inspirational experience, suspending judgement and acknowledging the strength and wisdom in the young. This is much more than the story of a fight against cancer and a life lost. Those who suffer yet have energy and grace in spirit offer us rare insight into the challenges of life and death that we must all go through. With Anna we share a truly inspiring journey that transcends tragedy.” Renee McCulloch MRCP Consultant in Paediatric Care at Great Ormond Street Hospital “Compelling reading. Thought provoking, intelligent, beautiful, funny sometimes and completely harrowing at other times” Anne Hunt more reviews and comments >>|
