Lara Blaine believes that she can hide from her past by clinging to a rigid routine of work and exercise. She endures her self-imposed isolation until a cancer diagnosis cracks her hard exterior. Lara's journey through cancer treatment should be the worst year of her life. Instead, it is the year that she learns how to live. She befriends Jane, another cancer patient who teaches her how to be powerful even in the face of death. Accepting help from the people around her allows Lara to confront the past and discover that she is not alone in the world. With the support of her new friends, Lara gains the courage to love and embrace life. Like climbing the Eiffel Tower, the year Lara meets Jane is tough, painful, and totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stands tall in beauty and authenticity This is one of those books you find yourself thinking about long after you've finished reading it. I have fallen in love with this novel and its characters. The friendship between Jane and Lara is one for the ages. We all need friends like these. And thanks to Hein's genuine writing style, we have them. The subject matter of this novel had the potential to create a dark book, but Hein uses humor, snark, and little prickliness to poke holes in the darkness and flood her readers with light. This novel stands tall in its beauty, authenticity, and wisdom.
