About the Book:

At the heart of the book is Owen, Cecily’s thirty-year-old cousin who died from brain cancer weeks before the coronavirus pandemic changed our lives forever. Inspired by his unshakable positivity and the valuable lessons he taught her, Cecily spent the months in lockdown chronicling his memory as a moving reminder: whatever challenges life might throw one’s way, they will be over soon. Weaving together past and present, and told with honesty and heart, Cecily offers us all space to connect and reflect within her story.

Coming out of the time-warped year of 2020 with an eye towards the future, Cecily will discuss the challenges of beginning a relationship during the pandemic; the pain of losing family and friends; the pivotal events of her life that shaped her; and the importance of gratitude for each passing day.
