About the Book...
Kiss the Joy As It Flies is a thrilling joy-ride through a week in the life of a self-made woman facing her deepest fears. First released in July, the book quickly appeared on the CBA bestseller list and was almost instantly reprinted to meet the growing demand for the book.
Panic-stricken by the news that she needs exploratory surgery, forty-eight-year-old Mercy Beth Fanjoy drafts a monumental “to do” list and sets about putting her messy life in order. But tidying up the edges of her life means the past comes rushing back to haunt her and the present keeps throwing up more to do’s. Between fits of weeping and laughter, ranting and bliss, Mercy must contemplate the meaning of life in the face of her own death. In a week filled with the riot of an entire life, nothing turns out the way she’d expected.
