Until 2003, Ulla-Carin Lindquist had balanced a high-flying media career with the demands of her four children. Then suddenly she was diagnosed with a terminal illness. In the last year of her life she wrote this heartbreaking memoir. Powerfully moving, yet also uplifting, it is an unforgettable story about the indomitable power of language and love, about motherhood and about finally letting go.
Ulla-Carin Lindquist died in 2004. On publication in Sweden, 'Rowing without Oars' became a number one bestseller. Rights have been sold in seven countries.
