THE TIME OF MY LIFE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE TIME OF MY LIFE
BY CECELIA AHERN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
"Dear Lucy Silchester, You have an appointment for Monday, May 30, 2011. Yours sincerely, Life."

Lucy Silchester keeps receiving this appointment card and sweeping the envelope under the rug. Literally. Instead, she has busied herself with work (a job she doesn't love), helping out friends, fixing her car, feeding her cat, seeing her family, and devoting her time to their life dramas. But she's stuck in a rut and deluding everyone. Only Lucy knows the real truth.

Then one day life shows up at her door, in the form of a rather run-down man in an old suit, who is determined to bring about change. Life follows Lucy everywhere—the office, bars—meets her flabbergasted friends, and won't let Lucy off the hook. What she learns in the process is that some of the choices she's made, and stories she's told, aren't what they seem either. Now her stubborn half-truths are going to be revealed in all their glory . . . unless Lucy learns to tell the truth about what really matters to her. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Before she embarked on her writing career, Cecelia Ahern completed a degree in journalism and media communications. At 21, she wrote her first novel, P.S. I Love You, which became an international bestseller and was adapted into a major motion picture, starring Hilary Swank. Her successive novels—Love, Rosie; If You Could See Me Now; and There's No Place Like Here—were also international bestsellers. Her books are published in 46 countries and have collectively sold more than 10 million copies. She is also the cocreator of the hit ABC comedy series Samantha Who?, starring Christina Applegate. The daughter of Ireland's former prime minister, Ahern lives in Dublin, Ireland.

This sounds interesting. I think we all go about our lives just doing things and not really living life. So I'd like to see how her life catches up with her. What kind of truths does she have to face.
