Episode Description

This episode features award winning author Nancy Sharp and her book BOTH SIDES NOW: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living. On the day that Nancy delivered premature twins, she learned that her husband's brain cancer had returned after eighteen months in remission. Less than three years later, at the age of 37, she became a widow. Seeking a fresh start, Nancy packed up her five year-old twins and left Manhattan for Denver, never imagining that she would find love in the pages of a magazine. The story of her unforgettable journey is a gift to those looking to lift themselves from the embers of loss and adversity through bold living.
