Like ‘When Breath Becomes Air’ by Paul Kalanithi and Abraham Verghese, ‘Building Mountains from Dust’, award winning author, Kimberly Young shares her story of survival and inspiration. At fifty, Kimberly’s structured, organized, and driven life is thrown into a tailspin when she is diagnosed with advanced staged lung cancer.

Never a smoker, Kimberly makes frank reflections about her decision not to have children, and how she makes peace with her mother, who abandoned her over fifteen years ago. This is a story about heart-wrenching life lessons, forgiveness, and about finding faith, as in a tragic twist of fate; Kimberly survives her cancer when her husband of twenty years suddenly dies.
