"I want you to know that if my illness inspired you to write these stories, the cancer was worth it." —Deb
What stories could possibly make cancer worth it? Stories that represent a miracle—a lifetime of miracles. Stories that changed the writer as she wrote them, and the woman who received them. Stories that will touch the heart of the listener, one by one by one. They started out as words of encouragement to a dying woman. They turned into a collection of sparkling and intimate moments, pulled from the past to finally be understood and shared with new meaning. Story by story, letter by letter, Margaret Terry uncovered powerful pictures in her own life of the one truth that could help carry her friend Deb from this life to the next: God is at work. Together, Deb and Margaret found renewed hope in all the ways God shows up right to the very end. Which is where they found the miracle they’d been praying for all along. In each other.
Margaret Terry and her sons live in Ontario, Canada, where she still stops by the side of the road to pick the Queen Anne’s lace. Her favorite thing to do is cook for family and friends and sit around the table telling stories.
“Faced with losing her friend by inches to cancer, Terry went looking for miracles, and found them embedded in her own imperfect life. . . . If you think, There has to be more to life, then pick up this book, and follow the 55 small candles of honesty to the place Terry leads you. That place, astonishingly, is you.”
