Bone Knowing

“Jennifer Allen's BONE KNOWING is a powerful account of how families cope with the specter of life-threatening illness and live meaningful, even wonderful lives, under its shadow.”

Kenneth J. Doka, PhD Professor at The Graduate School, College of New Rochelle
Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America

BONE KNOWING is a love story about risking loss for the sake of living fully.

            With a bone knowing “Yes” to her husband-to-be—cancer and all—Jen steps onto a wild ride that takes her to the heights of living for the moment and then plummets her into dark crevices of doubt and resentment.

            When Tom’s effervescent vitality begins to fade, he and Jen stumble along unfamiliar territory, navigating a future with the thread of illness weaving more heavily through it each day.

           Life doesn’t wait. It marches on with harsh blows and moments of utter beauty, challenging them to redefine faith and hope. As Tom’s body withers and Jennifer’s grows full with child, their separate paths return them to common ground, where the most impractical choices result in unexpected miracles and healing doesn’t always mean cure. 


" . . . I cry joy. The nectar of my life overwhelms me at times. There is something about birth, with the awareness of death that is so beautiful I can’t contain it. Both my body and my heart brim over. For moments at a time, I find myself in the place just between the two sides of joy and pain, where the two become indiscernible."
