Next to You: Caron's Courage Remembered by Her Mother Review

A moving, thought-provoking and uplifting story of a wonderful mother, daughter relationship.

Gloria Hunniford's daughter, TV presenter Caron Keating, was 34 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

The next seven years of Caron's life, and her family's, became a quest for recovery that ultimately took them across the world.

They became experts in the illness and its treatment, both conventional and alternative. All the while Caron was living in the public eye and keeping her own, devastating secret.

This is Gloria's account of Caron's life. It is about the difficult bond between mothers and daughters ... about what happens to a family when one of its members gets taken over by a disease.


It's a celebration of an unbreakable mother - daughter relationship and how that relationship withstood the strain of Caron's illness. And above all it's a book to commemorate a spirited, magical woman. A woman who loved life and fought to hold onto it.

'It is outstanding from the beginning ... feels painfully truthful but is utterly absorbing. It does make you cry - endlessly' Daily Express

'We see Caron as a daughter, a sister, a wife, a friend and a mother - but most of all as a fighter. This is not a story of illness and death rather it's a beautiful, emotional celebration of an extraordinary life that sadly ended far too soon. A beautiful read' Daily Record
