Just Another Mountain: A Memoir of Hope
By Sarah-Jane Douglas
A life-affirming journey of healing and endurance, of a mother and a daughter, and of how we keep both love and hope alive.
At the age of twenty-four, Sarah Jane Douglas lost her mother to breast cancer. She was alone and adrift in the world, but had promised her mother that she would keep going, no matter what. So she turned to the beautiful, forbidding mountains of her native Scotland – and then beyond.
By walking in her mother’s footsteps, Sarah found the strength to face her grief, to accept her troubled past and, ultimately, to confront her own cancer diagnosis twenty years later.
Sometimes all you can do is put one foot in front of the other and keep walking…
Sarah Jane Douglas writes the popular blog ‘Smashing Cancer in the Face’. She is an artist and former teacher who lives with her two teenage sons in an old fishing village on the northeast coast of Scotland, is a lover of mountains and is proud to be Munroist number 5764. Just Another Mountain is her first book.
