Publisher's Description

Some things should be kept private. Frances Snyder can never quite get her mother’s voice out of her head. How to be the perfect wife. The perfect mother. Frances’s home life is demanding, and while she’s busy seeing to everyone else’s needs, Frances doesn’t have the luxury of spare time.

So when she is diagnosed with breast cancer, she thinks that she can handle it on her own. Dealing with endless tests, brutal chemotherapy, and the looming specter of surgery, Frances chooses to face cancer on her own terms: alone. That is, until she finally understands that unexpected friendship—and unconditional love—can offer hope in the darkest hours.

With tenderness, grace, and flashes of humor, bestselling author Sarah Price draws upon her own experience as a breast cancer survivor to create a story about one woman’s determined and solitary journey into the unknown—in hopes that she’ll find her way back home.

Author Bio

A former college professor, bestselling author Sarah Price began writing full-time after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2013. She has written more than twenty novels, but The Faded Photo is her first foray into women’s fiction. Drawing on her own experiences as a survivor of both breast cancer and domestic violence, Sarah explores the issues that touch—and shape—women’s lives. Sarah lives in Morristown, New Jersey, with her husband and two children.

    Healing Is Much More Than Just A Physical Thing...

    I just recently finished reading this book, The Faded Photo, by Sarah Price and let me tell you...it is an amazing story of 'Hope in the Darkest Hours'!

    'I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion and was not required to write a positive review.'

    THAT being said...Once I started reading it, I could hardly put this book down! I can relate to this story in many ways...while some aspects are different from my own life...in many other ways, they were the same.

    For her first time writing 'women's fiction', Sarah Price hit this one out of the park, mainly because she COULD use her own personal life experiences to weave this tale into such a believable and emotional story that kept me riveted!

    The main character, Frances, is diagnosed with breast cancer and in her misguided effort to shield her children and not have it affect THEIR lives, partly from the way her mother always had to have things perfect, or at least 'appear perfect'....as well as Frances keeping the news from her husband, Nicholas, whom she feels is just too busy to be bothered and too involved in his work, that she just can't let it affect his busy schedule, though she does TRY to tell him...she goes it alone, save for her best friend, Charlotte...the only person she does tell. Through her hiding her diagnosis, her going through chemo, and trying to maintain a 'normalcy' in her home life...for the sake of her family...she neglects herself as far as the support she now NEEDS from her family.

    At the Cancer Center, she meets Madeline, an older woman, who is also going though treatment for breast cancer...alone. They strike up a casual friendship and Frances learns some of Madeline's story about her own family...but things aren't always as they seem as Frances finds out in the end. Not only with Madeline, but in her own perceived notions of her children, her husband, her family life and a faded photo memory from the past, that ties it all together.

    This is a story of fear, of hope, of struggles and of letting go of what you 'believe to be' and allowing yourself to see what 'really is'...and being open to letting people in and giving them the chance, at least, instead of pushing them away.

    This story is a testament that healing is much more than just a physical thing...

    Powerful. Provocative. Poignant. Emotive. That's what this reader has to say about Sarah Price's astounding new release, The Faded Photo. Drawing on her own experience as a breast cancer survivor, Ms. Price has penned a story about a 42 year-old woman who finds herself encountering every woman's nightmare -- breast cancer. Frances Snyder certainly has no time in her busy life for breast cancer. However, it found time for her and she sets out to conquer it...alone. She expects perfection from herself as does her family and her dearly beloved "jerk" of a husband. Sorry for the name calling, but Nicholas totally fits that description -- too busy with his career to make time for Frances. So she faces chemo alone, successfully keeping her illness a secret. The self-centered jerk ... er, Nicholas, rather (sorry), is even too busy to notice she is wearing a wig and so what if she's staying wrapped around the toilet from the ravaging effects of chemo. But God puts an unexpected friend in Frances's life, offering her hope and light in the midnight hour of her soul.

    What a thought provoking, eye-opening book this was for me! My emotions were in a tailspin as one minute I wanted to wrap my arms around Frances and the next I simply wanted to shake her! However, she was not unlike so many women...losing her own identity for the sake of her family. I truly thought this would be too dark a read, but actually it was an intriguing one that I finished in two short evenings. I could hardly put it down! Interspersed with humor, insight, and a surprising conclusion, I highly recommend this book to every woman. Not simply a novel about breast cancer, The Faded Photo also deals with a dysfunctional family who needs healing. Sarah Price has truly established herself as one amazingly diverse author -- who is able to write anything from Amish, YA, and contemporary fiction with finesse and the ability to totally captivate her audience.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion and was not required to write a positive review.

    Frances is on this journey and its a journey she believes is better kept under wraps, some secrets are better left that way in private. But along the process she struggles with friends, family and healing. Can she fight this her way and have it go the way she planned or will she need those close to her more then she realizes?

    Where can I even begin with this book. This book hits super close to home with me. This book is not a traditional amish book that Sarah is known for but this book is just as good and just as amazing. I truly read this book in one sitting and was not going to bed till I found out what happened. I had a very much love hate relationship with Carrie and Nicholas and wanted to reach in the book and throttle Nicholas. I loved Andy his sweet spirit no matter what but a typical teenager all the same. I really enjoyed Madeline and how Sarah gave her this mystery that a made you want to know more about her. I loved how Sarah did not make this family perfect how she made them feel like you were catching up with friends rather then reading a story. This story is so worth the read and you so can not go wrong.
