Unplanned Journey is a breast cancer diary with candid and beautifully observed photography by award-winning photographer, Bella West.
It shows the 18-month period in the life of a middle-aged woman, Tiggy Walker (who happens to be married to BBC Radio 2's Johnnie Walker), undergoing her breast cancer treatment and reconstruction.
What seemed a cruel sentence ends up with Tiggy having neater breasts than she could ever have hoped for, and a renewed outlook on her life.
The journey may have been unplanned, but it is the most important one she has taken.
Tiggy does not hold back in this book; she openly discusses the challenges she faced, her hatred of chemo and her relationship with Johnnie.
She bravely exposes her voluptuous body for the photos, as she documents what physical changes occur.
This book is essential reading for anyone who has been through cancer - as a patient or a carer - and for anyone about to go through treatment for breast cancer.
Royalties from the book will be going to Carers UK.
