Between Two Kingdoms – A memoir of life interrupted –

Suleika Jaouad

“It started with an itch, up and down her legs, like a thousand invisible mosquito bites. Then, a few weeks shy of her twenty-third birthday, Suleika Jaouad was given a diagnosis: leukemia, with a 35 percent chance of survival. When she finally walked out of the cancer ward four years later – after countless rounds of chemo, a clinical trial, and a bone marrow transplant – she was, according to the doctors, cured. But as she would soon learn, a cure is not where the work of healing ends; it’s where it begins.

To begin to live again, Jaouad embarked on a 15.000-mile road trip across the country to meet some of the strangers – teachers and artists, a teenage cancer patient, an a death row inmate – who had written to her during her time in the hospital. Along the way, she learned about how we move forward when life is interrupted – by heartbreak, loss, disaster, or illness  and how we survive the constant transitions that are essential to the human experience.

Between Two Kingdoms is a profound chronicle of survivorship  and a fierce, tender, and inspiring exploration of what it means to begin again.”
