Read full description of the books A Year of the Unexpected:Moving, touching, wonderfully written, inspiring to read ... Takes us on the emotional journeys of seven women seeking to transform their lives, and proves that sometimes what we really need to inspire us to change is a good, firm shove. Garth Stein, author of THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN
Seven women gather to celebrate their beloved friend Kate′s remission from cancer, only to discover that she is living in dread over her daughter′s unusual gift to mark the occasion, a white-water rafting trip to the Grand Canyon.
Torn between a lifelong fear and the thrill of doing something that terrifies her, Kate gets a little help from her friends. They pledge to help her take the leap with their own ′bucket list′ - to each do the one thing that scares them most before the year is out. The only condition is Kate gets to choose what that will be.
Whether it′s getting a tattoo, finally letting go of a lost love or giving away a collection of treasured books and their memories, each woman discovers the unexpected joy of facing your fears - and knowing that you will always have friends to catch you if you fall.
