A Story of Hope and Courage
At 27, Louise Arthur was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. Tall, beautiful, vital, often outrageous, Louise lived with her husband, Tim, and little daughter, Caitlin.
Determined to leave something behind, not to die an unfulfilled twenty-something, Louise started a web diary. It was so alive, so poignant and funny, it became an immediate success. 'The Daily Mail' gave her a weekly column. It was required reading by thousands.
"Life is short. Do what you can while you can."
Louise never gave up her fight for life. As she became weaker her courage did not desert her but was replaced by a gradual acceptance that she had only a short time. In January 2000, Louise died.
Her story is told from two points of view - Louise's in her shadowdiary entries, and Tim's in his own words. 'Shadow In Tiger Country' provides a unique insight into the last year of the life of a remarkable young woman and her family. Life enhancing, inspirational, this book is a very modern love story.
