Book Review – How to Climb the Eiffel Tower by Elizabeth Hein

My Review

I received a copy of How to Climb the Eiffel Tower by Elizabeth Hein in exchange for an honest review.

Lara Blaine has lived in self imposed isolation in an attempt to hide from her past and her life very much revolves around a regimen of work and exercise.  Then one day a diagnosis changes everything.  She meets Jane at treatment and they form a tight bond, something the past Lara would never allow.  Through the friendship Jane gives Lara the support and courage to face the demons from her past that haunt her steps.  This book gives a very graphic account of the disease that is Cancer and the treatments that the survivors endure, to in the end, survive or not survive their fight to stay alive.  Heart-wrenching in its account of the courage and fear of the victims, their families and friends and we must all never overlook what it takes to survive or just simply endure.  Sad, but nevertheless, an awesome book!
