'Amazing, heartbreaking and inspiring' Jenny Colgan 'A beautiful story of friendship. I loved it' Celia Anderson Sometimes we need our friends to help us find our feet...

When Keira receives her breast cancer diagnosis she doesn't want to have to tell her children or her husband Tom, and she doesn't want to step back from work. She doesn't want to sit in a hospital and stare mortality in the face, nor be part of a group of fellow cancer patients. Cancer is not her club.

But, as she is forced to accept everything must change and her health becomes something she can't rely on, Keira finds herself embracing running. Hot, sweaty running in the company of a group of brilliant, funny women each going through treatment.

Because the C-word is not going to define Keira's identity. And with the Cancer Ladies' Running Club cheering her on, she is going to reclaim her life. One step at a time.

Moving and uplifting, this is a novel about love, family and the power of finding your tribe.

'Made me believe in life and in love. Hopeful and life-changing' Katie Marsh, author of The Rest of Me 'A searingly honest, but fiercely positive story about the importance of friendship and the power of hope' Mike Gayle, author of Half a World Away
