Amber’s Way is the story of a mother and daughter’s journey through an emotionally charged landscape. At the heart of the story is the unwavering bond between Jessica and her courageous daughter, Amber.

Jessica’s storybook romance turns to tragedy when she is widowed shortly before Amber’s birth. Despite her grief, she makes a promise that her daughter will live a happy life. But her pledge is tested when Amber is diagnosed with cancer after her fourth birthday.

Just as she fought off the monsters lurking under her bed, Amber’s warrior spirit prevails against the monster that has invaded her body. And after months of harrowing treatments, when it seemed there was no end in sight, Amber’s doctor utters the magical word—remission.

Eight years later, Amber is on the verge of adolescence. In another twist of fate, they are thrust back into the nightmare when her cancer returns. Amber responds by showing the same tenacity she had when she was small and vows to live her life to the fullest. To celebrate her decision, they take up residence in the historic town of Placerville, California, at the foot of the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains.

It is here that Amber makes an unusual friendship with an orphaned deer she names Jane Doe. She also meets Nathan, a cute musician. Will she experience her first kiss without the shadow that has darkened most of her life? Whatever happens, Amber is determined to live her life her way.

To further that cause, a percentage of the proceeds from Amber’s Way will be donated to the Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation, Bloomingdale, Illinois.
