Falling : a daughter, a father, and a journey backFalling : a daughter, a father, and a journey back
by Elisha Cooper

When Cooper discovers a lump in five-year-old Zoe's midsection as she sits on his lap at a Chicago Cubs game, life changes. Surgery, sleepless nights, treatments, a drumbeat of worry. Even as the family moves to New York and Zoe starts kindergarten, they must navigate a new normal regularly interrupted by anxious visits to the hospital. Forced to balance his desires to be a protective parent even as he encourages his girls to take risks, Cooper writes about what it took for him and his wife to preserve a sense of normalcy and joy in their daughters' lives, while being transformed by the fear and hope we feel for those we love.
