A debut novel about one woman's life shaken up, and the lessons she learns in putting back together the pieces

Jill Beech's nine-year relationship is over. She swaps one so-so job for another. She gets tipsy with off-beat friends. She internet dates. Feeling stuck, life is suddenly flipped on its head by some shocking news - she has cervical cancer. A simple operation to remove part of her cervix becomes a two-week hospital stay with Jill refusing to speak, such is the depth of her shock. But how can Jill recover her life? A kitten called Cyril? A handsome man by the name of Roy? Nights out with weird and wonderful friends? Jill wonders - is she really better? What if Roy wants kids and she can't have them? And how can she truly be happy? She may have a happy-ever-after, she may not; but Jill has a lesson to teach us - once you master the art of falling, rolling with life's punches becomes so much easier.
