"A poignant and heartbreaking tale about two people trying to live life to its fullest while knowing that today is all that they might have. Cassandra’s characters are both strong and yet so fragile in their strength."

Ellie Abela’s life has been anything but easy. Tragedy follows her where ever she goes, and she’s been a lot of places. At twenty she’s lived in over ten different states, all because of her dad’s career in medical research. His career is just another list of the causes of tragedies in El’s life. He’s dying, and with every breath, he takes closer to Heaven, Ellie dies a little bit inside too.
At twelve she lost her mom in a drunk driving accident, and in a matter of months, she fears she’ll lose the last person she has in the world to cancer.
While Ellie’s life has been rife with sadness, Trent Wentworth’s has been a challenge. A drug-addicted mom and a deadbeat dad meant at twenty-three he was the adoptive father of his two-year-old sister. Now at twenty-five, he’s working his way up the corporate ladder and a struggling single parent.
Each is searching for a cure for the things in their lives dragging them down.
Not all cures are black and white; not all cures save us–and sometimes saving isn’t what we need. Sometimes we just need to realize how lucky we are to be alive, at least for this moment.
