Stuff I Love: “How To Save A Life”

It’s a giddy day around here because “How To Save A Life” is now available.

If you’re looking for a new book that will make your heart sing and maybe tear up a bit, please check out this new novella by my friend, international bestselling author, Kristin Harmel.

Here’s the description:

“When a pediatric oncology nurse receives a devastating prognosis—she has just weeks left to live—she finds unexpected comfort from a patient. Her young friend shares a life- and death-changing secret: it is possible to live the same day over and over again until she’s experienced a truly full life. Thus begins a heartbreaking and joyful journey of love, friendship, and self-discovery, as the brave nurse only truly learns how to live in the face of death. Kristin Harmel, whose work has been called “immersive and evocative” (Publishers Weekly), “absorbing…well-paced and warmhearted” (Kirkus Reviews), and “absolutely enthralling” (Fresh Fiction), infuses her poignant, uplifting novella with a dash of magic and a hefty dose of heart.”

Another reason this is perfect, it’s a novella.

Which means it’s a bit shorter than Kristin’s other books.

It’s an ebook, so you take it with you on the go.

On your Kindle or Nook.

Or a reading app you can load on your phone.

I know I use my Kindle app on my phone all the time when I have a spare minute, so thankful not to lug an actual book around.

If you love beautiful stories set in beautiful places that are written for smart women, please check out Kristin Harmel’s incredible books.

You won’t be sorry.

Inside scoop, my favorite book of hers so far is “The Sweetness of Forgetting.”

Here’s a fun interview I did with Kristin last year when we were trying on the idea of an online book and author show.  I’d still love to make this happen.  Love that I got this time with my friend.


For some of my own uplifting stories about the power of friendship, facing loss, about raising kids, marriage, and finding hope, please check out my new book, “Hope Possible: A Network News Anchor’s Thoughts On Losing Her Job, Finding Love, A New Career, And My Dog, Always My Dog.”
