Review of Nowhere Near Goodbye

This book had my emotions on a roller coaster. Emma is a career driven physician and what drives her is the death of her best friend Kate. When they were both 11 years old Kate died of a rare form of cancer. Emma has dedicated herself to finding the cure for this cancer along with Kate’s father who is also a physician. Kate has an enviable marriage to her wonderful husband Tim. Unexpectedly Emma becomes pregnant. After initially being thrilled she starts to worry how she will balance motherhood with her quest for the cancer cure. Adding to her stress is the fact that her mentor, Kate’s father Ned, is very unhappy with the pregnancy. Although Emma has a beautiful baby girl she spends more and more time working at the hospital. As the years pass we see the decisions Emma has made and how it has affected her family and career.
