    A beautiful, heart-wrenching book. Keelin whisks you along on her trail-blazing journey through life and towards journey’s end. She will live on in the pages of this book and when they turn yellow from age, she will be triumphant. Vincero.

    A truly lovely read. The spirit of Keelin shines through every page. Her pragmatic practical approach to her profession and then later her illness is to be greatly admired. Her sense of humour helped her face her challenges. She certainly was not defined by her cancer and lived life to the full. A good lesson in there for all of us!

    This was one of the most difficult books I think I've ever read. It it absolutely heartbreaking and so hard to follow her on her journey, knowing what was coming. As a TV personality, she was so familiar, I felt like I knew her. I found my self thinking about the times I had watched her without knowing she was sick. Imagining her coping with her illness. All the while life around her goes on, wondering how her husband and kids will cope when she's gone. Some have described it as uplifting. I didn This was one of the most difficult books I think I've ever read. It it absolutely heartbreaking and so hard to follow her on her journey, knowing what was coming. As a TV personality, she was so familiar, I felt like I knew her. I found my self thinking about the times I had watched her without knowing she was sick. Imagining her coping with her illness. All the while life around her goes on, wondering how her husband and kids will cope when she's gone. Some have described it as uplifting. I didn't find it so. One positive I did take from it is to be so thankful for the things she lamented most - Her Children, not being there to see how they will make their mark in life. If there is a lesson, it's to be thankful you're alive and live life to the full, don't take it for granted. Difficult and all as it is, this is a memoir that deserves to be read, to appreciate her as a member of an audience who never knew what was going on behind the screen.

    So very moving and honest. Such a lovely person and a huge loss, especially to her family. Just couldn’t put it down and as it’s New Years Eve today I needed to finish it and think of what she went through despite all the smiles on RTÉ news. May she rest in peace and her family cope with life after Keelin.

    Keelin Shanley was one of Ireland's best TV investigative journalists. After two bouts of cancer, she died aged 51 in February 2020. Written in the final months of her life, this is a mixture of recollections of her earlier life and reflections on the battle with cancer that she eventually realises is only going to end one way. Moving and yet by no means morbid, this is highly recommended. Keelin Shanley was one of Ireland's best TV investigative journalists. After two bouts of cancer, she died aged 51 in February 2020.
