One Hundred and Twenty-Six Days is a deeply emotional, nonfiction account by Author Holly Richard about how life can radically change in the blink of an eye. The book throws you onto an unthinkable path as the family is ambushed and violently hurled onto the cancer battlefield. What follows is nothing anyone could ever imagine. The author's unfathomable journey is translated to the reader in devastating detail.
Strap in and prepare to ride on this family's emotional rollercoaster that blasts you through a series of chapters where it is hard to catch your breath as you whip through the darkest of tunnels at lightning speed. Glimpses of light and hope follow, but then the author tosses the reader into an unrecognizable world.
At a critical juncture, the story becomes reflective as the author looks back on events and shares insights and a deeper self-examination of how to somehow survive a broken heart. Holly challenges her faith and struggles with isolation and loneliness as she desperately searches for truth and the tools to endure. In the last section, she offers guidance and comfort for others who might find themselves walking the beaten path of bends and curves that is brutally painful and exhausting yet necessary in order to somehow move forward.
