A Life Less Lost

Like an English summer, the teen years are packed with highs and lows, lightning, thunder, sunshine and rainbows. In a flash, the warm smile of my youngest son, David, was transformed into a cloudy grimace. Doors refused to close quietly. Our porch flooded with smelly trainers. In despair, I told my older son, James, that he would argue with me even if all I’d said was the sky is blue. And he did – for ten minutes!

Hormones, peer pressure, rapid growth, awakened sexuality and exam pressure create a tornado of emotions, which sucks in everyone in its path. No matter how determined I was to remain calm, I still often ended up in a fury over silly things. Each day in the UK, six teenagers will find out that they have cancer. In 1996, fifteen-year-old James was one of them. That tsunami affected everyone in our family. A Life Less Lost is the memoir of that experience from a mother’s point of view.

‘You should consider carefully how you wish to spend what time you might have left with James.’

When a mother faces the ultimate threat – the suffering and potential loss of her child – every human resource kicks in, including her faith. A Life Less Lost charts the author’s journey through white coats, misdiagnoses, endless appointments and more. KB Walker connects stories from her American childhood to the traumas that face her very English family to explain the hope that helps her hold her life together.
