Dr. Carole Weaver
With a doctorate in English and a lifetime of adventure in travel, matrimony, single parenting, and fund-raising—and a few side trips into performance art—Carole Weaver offers her varied skills in this saga of survival through meditation on beauty, oddness, and the work of love that is art. In her early 60’s, with her kids grown and gone, she has sold her big house and moved into a tiny apartment. While still
raising money for a woman’s college, she’s really hoping for some bit parts on Broadway. Then fate deals her two hands: a fascinating new boyfriend and breast cancer. There are complications, especially with the cancer; but somehow, her resilience, her passion for the man, and even her overly educated mind pull her through. This is a Cinderella story for an aging feminist in the 21st century.
Not another book on surviving breast cancer!

Among the paintings, sculpture, and unusual collections in her lover’s home, Carole finds comfort and even cure in her yearlong struggle with chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and painful side effects. To paraphrase Tolstoy, happy endings are not all alike, and this one, about a 62-year-old with only one real breast will, like the art objects she loves, satisfy and delight.
