Product Description

Product Description

There is more to cancer than death.

120 days... The average number of days someone stays at Last Resort.

17 weeks... Surrounded by love, laughter and support.

4 months... More time than they had before they walked through the door.

Real estate developer Ethan McGregor’s life was changed forever when his younger brother told him he was dying of cancer. Ethan was ready to do whatever it took to save Evan, but Evan had other plans.

Say goodbye…

Samantha Truman runs the privately-funded Last Resort. Watching her parent’s drive and determination to live longer than the doctors gave them was the inspiration for the resort. It is her heart and soul--she lives to make sure that each day is precious, and one more sunrise or sunset can make all the difference the guests at Last Resort need.

After finding his brother’s journal, and discovering more about Last Resort, Ethan is determined to find out if this place is one of those “too good to be true” places that turn out to be a scam. But he was not ready for Samantha Truman, he was not ready for everything to change, for his point of view in life to be so incredibly altered, for the world to turn its axis. There are, after all, some things Ethan can’t control, who to fall in love with is one of them.

How much can change in 120 days?

This is my first read from M.Stratton and it will not be my last, this is a very hard review to write as I am emotionally wowed.

Ethan is a business man who is selfish and cold hearted, he has been through loss in his life and has thrown all of his focus and energy into work and money.

Ethan receives an unexpected visit from his estranged brother Evan. Evan drops the bombshell that he has terminal cancer and has decided he doesn't want Ethan to watch him die so he has come to say goodbye,

Ethan doesn't want to accept this and tries to no avail to find him.

When Ethan gets news of Evans passing he is given Evans journal which is the key to Evans last days. Evan spent the time he had left and exceeded the Drs expectations at a place called last resort.

Last resort is where the terminally ill can go to die with others facing the the same fate, they will be granted their final wishes and dreams with a group that will become family to them, last resort is run by a selfless woman named Sam who makes it her sole purpose to fulfill the dreams of the guests and also when the time comes, hold their hand and let them know that it is ok to stop fighting and let go,

Ethan travels to lost resort convinced that Sam is conning the sick out of money, he takes a job there planing to uncover Sam as a schemer.

After initially being suspicious of the other Sam and Ethan realize that they are not what they suspected and they fall in love.

What follows is a beautiful story of learning to grieve, change, growth and new beginnings and unfortunately with the nature of the resort there will also be loss.

What an absolutely amazing read this one!

As someone who has worked in the health field for many years and watched so many families struggle with loosing a loved I can honestly say that this has to be one of the most beautifully, honest, touching stories I have ever read!

From start to finish M Stratton has created a magnificent world full of love, loss and heartache. I loved the premise behind this book which was what had initially attracted me to it but I have to say this book blew my mind in every way imaginable and I loved every second of it. There is no was to really describe 120 Days as each person will take from it something different. The only thing that I can say is that it is absolutely impossible to not be 100% affected by this read.

Throughout 120 Days, you will smile, laugh and definitely cry however you will sit back after reading it and feel amazing. You will be able to put your kindle down and feel a peace and calm unlike any other all due to this amazing world created by M. Stratton.

There is honestly nothing I can say to give this book the justice it deserves. I'm currently having a hard time even reviewing it as all I see is positive from this read and I don't want it to appear as if I'm just blowing smoke up everyone's you know what's.

I guess at the end of the day all I can say is this....this book is strength. Pure and utter strength with a side of emotion unlike anything you have ever read. If you have ever lost someone or have stood beside someone as they have grieved than you will love this book. Not only will you relate to it but it will give you a kind of understanding that is hard to achieve on your own. It's is simply put just raw and utter beauty.

Writing about terminally illnesses must not be easy, but unfortunately it's part of too many lives. I won this book and read it, there were ups and downs, it gives you a different look on life and it is eye-opening! I must admit it is not the type of book I usually go for, preferring uplifting themes, but I did read it in spite of that and man...it was a good book, but M Stratton made me cry...so make sure to read with plenty of tissues! The story in itself was great! Read it!

HASH(0xa540a210) out of 5 stars Gorgeous Story of Life and Love Aug. 29 2015
By Elena Cruz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There are truly not enough words to describe how blown away I was by M. Stratton's stunning and breathtaking 120 Days... A book that had me messaging the author because this heartbreaking yet hopeful story was stellar. The story follows Ethan McGregor, a successful business man set on being the best at his job and closing the big deals. One day his younger brother Evan unexpectedly stops by and reveals that he has terminal cancer. Ethan is shocked and tells Evan that he'll get him the best treatment but Evan tells him it's too late. The reason he is there is to say goodbye.

This moment it a catalyst for change in Ethan's life. The heartbreak over his brother and Evan''s journal leads Ethan to go to the place his brother spent the last days of his life, Last Resort. While this place sounds like a haven for those terminally ill, Ethan wonders if it's a scam. While he goes to investigates he meets the resort owner, Samantha "Sam" Truman, a woman will not only challenge Ethan but also lets him see the reason why Last Resort is such a special place.

I don't think I ever read a book that had me reaching for the Kleenex box three percent into the story like 120 Days... by M. Stratton did. In fact I reached for it a few times. I'm sure you're thinking well, of course it's sad because it's a book about people dying. The thing is it's so much more. It's about living life to the fullest as much as possible. Embracing it, appreciate every sunrise and sunset you have the privilege of seeing. It's about not taking life for granted because you never know what's going to happen. So much happens in this story that it you will go through every emotion as you read it. 120 Days is a beautiful story about love, being the best person possible, laughing, and living. M. Stratton poured so much love into this book. You read it in every single page of the story through Ethan, Sam, and all the people at Last Resort. If there is a book you should read, 120 Days... is it.

HASH(0xa540a4ec) out of 5 stars 4 Wings of Love #LoveHarder Aug. 29 2015
By Ms.Meesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
120 days...by M. Stratton truly gutted me emotionally and brought back lots of memories for me. Two and half years ago, I first hand experienced the impact of what it means to lose someone close to me to cancer. Cancer is not something we think about it since we all think it will never happen to us or the people we love but sometimes when we least expect it, it happens. Reality hits that possibly life might be cut short. And when I was spending the last few weeks with my mom, every regret, memories, and I love you's comes rushing back at you like a raging storm. And in 120 days, M. Stratton has written one of the most raw, touching, beautiful, and emotional book that I have read. In this emotional tale, she has managed to bring light on this delicate and sensitive subject of cancer, death, life, and acceptance.

20 Days though may be a cancer book but it is so much more. It is about truly understanding terminally ill patients and their last moments of living. Though they may experience pain and death is knocking on their door, it is about the hope, light, happiness, and acceptance of it all. 120 Days truly gutted me and left me bawling throughout the story. My heart and floods of memories came rushing back and so I understood the emotional heartache of Ethan as he relives and experiences what his brother's last moments through the eyes of the people at the Last Resort and Samantha. This book is tragic but really beautiful. 120 Days engulfs you with so many emotions that it reminds readers of the beauty of second chances, finding love, experiencing life, and acceptance. This is my first book from this author and it won't be me last. M. Stratton was able to showcase a strong voice of her characters in a well-written story.

HASH(0xa540aa08) out of 5 stars Such a Moving and Motivating Read! Aug. 30 2015
By Erika G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
120 Days. Such a beautiful love story. Romantic love, family love and most of all, undconditonal love. Last Resort was started by compassionate Samantha, who was compelled to create a safe, fun, brave and understanding place for terminal cancer patients to live out their last days, weeks, months, with dignity and grace. Ethan traveled to Last Resort after his brother Evan had lost his battle and discovered where he had spent his final days, as described through his journal that had been given to him. Ethan had a pre-conceived notion that Last Resort was in the business of milking money from the terminally ill, but he didn't count on meeting Samantha, and the "guests" and falling in love. In love with Samantha for the amazing woman she was, in love with the guests whose stories and struggles had a very emotional impact on him and in love with the place that gave his beloved brother some peace in his final days.

120 Days will make you weep. Many of the "guests" are based on actual beautiful people who faced the demon of cancer and lost their battles. Those people made this story so much more real for me. 120 Days is Gut wrenching, Beautiful and a must read. M. Stratton put her heart and soul into this book. I can only hope it can be a friend and comfort to those in need, patients and loved ones, who can identify with these battles, and find comfort in familiarity...even when fighting for your life... there will always be love.

HASH(0xa540a2d0) out of 5 stars How do you review a novel that is so beautifully written, but hurts your heart Dec 23 2015
By Bloggers From Down Under - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
How do you review a novel that is so beautifully written, but hurts your heart?
How do you review a novel that is so emotional it leaves you in tears?
How do you review a novel so raw and confronting that you're left completely speechless?
How do you review a novel so real?

To be honest we don't really know how but we'll give it our best.

Ethan didn't have the best start in life. Losing his parents in a car accident, Ethan was left to raise his younger brother Evan.
After years of struggle Evan left to join the forces, so Ethan was on his own.
No longer wanting to live day by day, week to week, Ethan worked hard and created an empire. His wealth, huge. But he lost himself along the way. He became cold, distant, shut off. Business was business.
But when Evan walked back into Ethan's life, everything was about to change.
Ethan's life as he once knew it would never be the same again.
Ethan was going to lose his brother, his only relative to cancer. And Evan would do it alone.
Evan lost his fight. But Evan wasn't alone.
The Last Resort was Evan's sanctuary, his place to heal, to live, to die.

After losing Evan, Ethan made it his mission to find out all he could about the Last Resort.
What was it?
What did they do there?
Why did Evan choose this place where he would take his final breath?
So Ethan applied for a job there.
But what Ethan never bargained on was what he would find, or more to the point, who'd he find.

Her name.

Samantha.
Owner of the Last Resort.

We refuse to go into any more detail about 120 days because it's a read we believe needs to be read without spoilers.
It's extremely raw and confronting, heart-warming and heartbreaking and highly emotional. It's the sad reality of families everywhere in the world facing the loss of a loved one to cancer. It's the hope and love faced by patients that allow them to keep fighting until the very end. It's about living life when you know it's about to be taken from you. It's about making every single day count.

We absolutely loved 120 days and highly recommend it to everyone.

A huge 5 star read.
