Both Sides Now: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living
Winner of eight awards including Books For A Better Life and the Colorado Book Award, this powerful debut memoir chronicles Nancy Sharp’s story of love, loss, and bold change.
Loss might be universal, says Nancy, but so, too, is hope. Ultimately, Both Sides Now is a story of understanding and hope.
A brave and vividly rendered memoir: when life and death collide, one young woman discovers how to hold both past and present at once ultimately lifting herself by bold living and a second chance at love. Both Sides Now hinges on the day when Nancy Sharp delivered premature twins and learned that her husband’s cancer had returned after eighteen months in remission. Set in New York City where the couple lived happily until Brett’s shocking diagnosis in 1998. The story moves back in time through Nancy and her husband’s courtship and marriage and forward through Brett’s death, when the twins were two-and-a-half, he was forty, and Nancy thirty-seven.
