Love in Dying tells the story of Sarah, who is dying of cancer. It invites the notion that in any life, with the unfailing power of unconditional love inherent in friendship, the ordinary has the potential to unfold the mystery of the individual extraordinary goal we are each invited to reach.
Life provides the opportunities- it is for us to recognize and embrace them. The pathway to wisdom is a journey into self-knowledge. By its nature it can be a lonely journey. We have to discover courage that acknowledges weaknesses and learn to take responsibility for mistakes and misunderstandings. Sarahs journey is coming to a close, and she recollects her life with clarity as she waits for its final moment. Tenuous as the threads had initially been, they strengthen as Sarahs diverse school friends mature, bringing awareness of how lives touch and influence each other, until one of the friends is forced to face the challenge of her life in order to acknowledge true love.
