Charlotte  Link - Six Years


In the end, our gain was six years, six years of living

In this haunting report, Charlotte Link tells of how her sister, Franziska, became ill and of her death. It is not only the most personal work by this bestselling author, a book full of insights into her own life, but also the poignant description of the years of the ever-present fear of having to lose a loved one.

Charlotte Link has written about the daily hospital routine cancer patients and their families are subject to, about encounters with wonderful and committed doctors; but also about dealings with medics whose conduct spreads distress and anxiety.

Six Years is the author's first non-fiction book and it is also her most personal one – a book in which she says farewell to her sister, who died in 2012 after a long period of illness. It is the story of a family that wears itself out in its fight against a merciless illness and the sometimes inhuman daily routine of hospital life – of a family that does not stop fighting for life.

"This is a sad, angry, hopeful book."
