Description of this Book

'While I don't have any choice in how long I have to live, I do have a choice in how I spend the time I have. And I've chosen not to spend it constantly stressing about cancer. I've chosen to enjoy the little things. I've chosen to laugh. And I've chosen to look back on my life and thank God for it.' In March 2017, Linda Nolan was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer and was given the terrible news that, while it was treatable, it was not curable. Her first thought was to worry about her family, who were still grieving the loss of their sister Bernie. Her second was, `But I'm alive and I'm going to fight it.' In From My Heart, Linda writes honestly about growing up in her big Irish family and finding fame with her sisters in The Nolans and reveals the shocking family secrets and feuds that threatened to tear them apart. She also describes her original battle with breast cancer and how the death of her husband left her deeply depressed, to the point of feeling suicidal. Just as she'd learned to embrace life again, and even to start dating, the cancer came back . . . In this warm, brave and funny memoir, Linda shows that it's never too late to learn what really matters.
