It begins with a foolish error. While attending a writers’ conference in Washington, D.C., Theodora Russell gets a call from an editor who wants to discuss her book proposal. During their meeting, however, Theo quickly discovers that the editor actually wanted to meet with Theodore Russell and talk about his book proposal.
Before Theodora can correct the misunderstanding, she becomes intrigued by Theodore’s proposal. It’s for a book that links breast cancer with first-pregnancy abortions. Determined to do a very different treatment of the topic, Theo researches the link—only to wind up running for her life.
“The Proposal is a brilliant piece of writing. I was glued to its screen (It should be made into a movie!) from start to finish. Brilliant writing. Compelling story. Mind-boggling pace. I couldn’t put it down. I have shown it or talked about it to about twenty people already, including my doctor. I plan to tell lots of others.—Carol Wedeven, author
