    COUNTING HEARTBEATS: A JOURNEY OF PERSEVERANCE THROUGH LOSS, BASED ON A TRUE STORY

    Book ID/图书代码: 12580018C00176

    English Summary/英文概要: It is said that the most life altering aspects of our lives happen in pieces. For Jessica Saroyan, it just took three disjointed pieces to completely shake the very foundation of her existence. Three single pieces: A Diagnosis…Complete turmoil…The heartbreaking loss…

    Shut off from the world, and dealing with her father’s recent ALS diagnosis, Jessica is determined to make every moment with her father count! Struggling with the decision to either let her father know about the diagnosis or carry the weight of it on her own, Jessica decides to focus on making memories. Yet the memories within this new reality overtake the ones from before as she finds herself staring down the barrel of her wedding that she’s no longer certain should take place. Lost, confused and heartbroken, Jessica turns to her family and best friend, Alec, as she tries to exist in a world where everything she loves slowly begins to fade one piece at a time.

    Counting Heartbeats weaves through the heartbreaking realities of coming to terms with losing someone you love. Often using sarcasm and self-deprecating humor, the author paints a heartrending picture of a seemingly perfect life halted by a single diagnosis.

    Here, you’ll go through a series of emotions from tears of laughter to tears of sorrow.

    Counting Heartbeats is a rollercoaster of emotions where the inevitable end is sure to have you appreciate the heartbeats that remain

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 据说,我们生活中那些改变人生的事情都是以碎片的形式发生的。对于Jessica Saroyan来说,有三个碎片彻底动摇了她生活的基础:一个诊断、完全的混乱和令人心碎的丧失。
