A Dozen Second Chances Paperback / softback
by Kate Field
What are the chances that twelve little tokens could change a life? Seventeen years ago, Eve Roberts had the wonderful life she'd always dreamed of: a degree in archaeology, a gorgeous boyfriend, and exciting plans to travel the world with him, working on digs.
But when her sister Faye died, the life Eve knew ended too.
Faye's daughter Caitlyn came to live with Eve, her boyfriend left, and she quickly gave up on her dreams. Now approaching her fortieth birthday, Eve faces the prospect of an empty nest as Caitlyn is leaving home.
Caitlyn gives Eve a set of twelve 'Be Kind to Yourself' vouchers, telling her that she has to start living for herself again, and that she should fill one in every time she does something to treat herself. With her very first voucher, Eve's life will change its course.
But with eleven more vouchers to go, can Eve learn to put herself first and follow the dreams she's kept secret for so long? Because life is for living - and as she well knows, it's too short to waste even a moment...
