You Can’t Take it With You - Jane Tomlinson, Mike Tomlinson

Paperback - Very Good Condition


Jane Tomlinson promised her husband Mike that if she had to resort to morphine she would abandon her latest challenge and go home. On day one, she broke her promise. Nine weeks later, she had cycled 3,700 miles from San Francisco to New York and lost a quarter of her bodyweight in the process. You Can’t Take It With You tells the story of Jane and Mike’s journey to that point: the marathons and triathlons, cycle rides down Britain and across Europe, and the £1,425,000 raised for charity that made it all so worthwhile.

Jane was just twenty-six when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. A decade later, in 2000, she was told that she had only six months to live. Jane, a devoted mother of three, had to find a way to make the most of every moment that was left to her. When she stood on the finishing line in New York she realised that six months had become six unforgettable years. Not a cancer memoir but the truth about living with dying, You Can’t Take It With You picks up from the bestselling The Luxury of Time. It is the story of two ordinary people turned extraordinary by the hand fate has dealt them.
