"Promises to Keep"

Of all the miscellaneous "gifts" that have come to me as a result of having had Breast Cancer, one of THE most amazing is that I have become virtual-friends with someone truly amazing & actually famous! Or is that truly famous & actually amazing?

I'm just back from my mailbox..... the real one, the one at the end of our driveway. What a thrill to pull that little magic door down and find a manilla envelope awaiting me. Opening the clasp I pulled out a hardback book by the New York Times bestselling author Jane Green. This is her twelfth novel and it's already been on the UK #1 bestselling list.

Jane was the real life friend of one of the beloved sistahs over at BCO. I became acquainted with Jane, due to having supported Heidi -- who I 'met' because she supported my dear friend, Saint. (Got that?) It was last fall that I formed the team, "Away We Go for Heidi-Ho" in the Oct. AmCancerSociety walk.

The remarkable part was opening the book's cover to read the dedication:
"In memory of Heidi Armitage
And dedicated to all the remarkable
women on the discussion boards of"
Heidi, that's quite a dedication.
Your friend Jane is missing you deeply, but your friendship will live on forever on the title page of this newest creative effort of hers. How proud you must be that Jane is donating 20% of her royalties from the sale of this book. I can't wait to begin reading. She is so very gifted. I'm grateful that you introduced the two of us to one another. I will be on the lookout for a white feather, on Jane's behalf.

Jane's newest novel is entitled, "Promises to Keep."
"In her twelfth novel, Jane Green is at her heartwarming best as she creates a tale of exceptional circumstances and the ties that bind. Promises to Keep is a novel about the hard choices we have to face, about having to be your parents' child long after you've grown up, and finally, about the enduring nature of love."
Here's to friendship, support, encouragement and finally, about the enduring nature of love.
