Breakfast on the Edge depicts how the love relationship between Adam and Alice is affected when Adam is told that he has incurable cancer. Although it is Adam who gets the death message, the novel shows that it is hard on Alice as well. Adam and Alice each fight their own struggle for survival and strive to understand each other's challenges right in the middle of their own. The novel is about being loved, and about how love is challenged, but also strengthened face to face with death. Vibeke Løkkeberg has written an intimate and moving story that gives insight into life around the cancer, and the struggle to stay together throughout it. A battle that Løkkeberg knows well: Like the novel's Adam, Vibeke's husband has been diagnosed with incurable cancer.
"Vibeke Løkkeberg shares generously from her own life in this touching book about illness in relationships."
