Eating Pomegranates : A Memoir of Mothers, Daughters and Genes Paperback



After a troubled upbringing that saw the early death of her mother from cancer, Sarah Gabriel had created a happy home life with her partner and two beautiful daughters.

Then, at 44, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and learned that while you can turn your back on your past, you can't escape your genetic legacy.

The problem was MI8T, a rare and deadly genetic mutation that was responsible for the death of her mother and countless female ancestors.

In Gabriel's struggle for survival, she takes us on a white-knuckle ride through contemporary genetics, the rigours of her treatment for cancer, and the impact of the disease on her family's dynamics.

It is a fight not just for physical survival, but for identity, for sanity, for hope.

Laced with black humour, written with a mixture of passion and clinical accuracy, Eating Pomegranates is an intensely powerful and moving memoir about mothers, daughters and breast cancer that is as beautiful as it is brutal.
