Storm in a B-Cup -Lindy Dale
Source: Courtesy of CLP Blog Tours for review.
Sophie loses not only her right breast but her boyfriend of three years, her house and her best friend. Her life spirals from great to bad, then ugly. Nothing can make it better, not even the crazy care packages her mother keeps sending from Melbourne.
To make matters worse, Sophie fears she’s developing a crush on the plastic surgeon that will be reconstructing her breast. Dr. Hanson has the bedside manner of an angel and the looks to match. He’s so caring and compassionate, Sophie begins to believe he cares about her in a most non-doctor-patient kind of way. But he doesn’t, of course. He’s merely her doctor. Or does he?
Oh my, what a book.
Not only has author Lindy Dale been brave enough to fight breast cancer herself she's been extremely clever and used her journey to create something funny and lighthearted to take light off a bad situation. Not only that though she gives us plenty of food for thought and insights to make us more aware of the condition and more aware of ourselves. Best of all Lindy Dale has been donating monies from the sales of Storm in a B-Cup to breast cancer charities. How strong and amazing is she ay? A proper inspiration!
So storm in a B-cup shows us twenty-nine year old, mum of one and designer bag, hat and accessory shop owner Sophie Molloy as she finds a lump in her breast and is later diagnosed with an invasive early stage breast cancer. We follow Sophie on her up and down two year journey with admiration, giggles and heartache. We see double mastectomies and ten reconstructive surgeries. Her OCD control freak partner walk out of their relationship. A total lapse in old friendships, but chocolate, wine and love from new ones. We see her mother Denise's unique way of dealing with the whole situation and her daughter with care packages that are beyond brilliant, and her step father Colins well let's just say we get to see a lot of Colin that we'd rather not!!
Best of all we get see mature, gorgeous and rock to Sophie her six year old son Rory. A child that steals your heart completely.
Oh it's such a wonderful book. You cry and laugh equally throughout, you fume and laugh with Sophie and you see into a world that some will never see, but some will and Lindy has dealt with this all brilliantly.
I urge you all to grab a copy.
