Publisher's Summary

At 32, Amy Boesky thought she had it all figured out: a wonderful new man in her life, a great job, and the (nearly) perfect home. For once, she was almost able to shake the terrible fear that had gripped her for as long as she could remember. All of the women in her family had died before the age of 45 - from cancer - and she and her sisters had grown up in time's shadow. Urgency colored every choice they made and was amplified now that each of them approached 35 - the deadline their doctors prescribed for having preventive surgery with the hope that they could thwart their family's medical curse.

But Amy didn't want to dwell on fear now; she wanted to spend time with her husband and plan for a new baby; live her life. And that's just what she did. In a way that only someone who is so acutely aware of passing time can, she chose to put her anxieties aside and relish life's simple pleasures.

In What We Have, Amy shares a deeply transformative year in her family's life and invites listeners to join in their joy, laughter, and grief. Unparalleled in its optimism and wisdom, What We Have celebrates the promise of a full life, even in the face of uncertainty.

Watching paint dry

I thought the basic idea for this book was solid but the writing is very slow going and the information is a bit dated. I think the writer is in denial about her genetic history and her reasons for not wanting to know more are very transparent. However this sort of decision can be changed at any time, whereas she can't exactly "un-know" whatever she finds out, so in some ways I understand the hesitation though I don't really relate to it.
