An inspirational story of survival for all who have lost someone or have faced a seemingly insurmountable challenge.
About the book
- "In June 2008, sisters Jennifer Melton and Stephanie Weis learned that their seemingly, healthy, fit father, Steve Salmon, had been diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer at the age of 59. "By the time they found it, it had gone to his brain," says Weis, 32. He died six months later. Last summer, the two sisters, who grew up in Hanover County and now live in Richmond's West End, decided to write about their father's life and their journey through a grief book. Published exactly a year after his death, "Pink Sky At Night" tells their family's story through the metaphor of a lighthouse helping tugboats weather a storm. The book is illustrated with photographs that Melton, 39, took and digitally enhanced with digital painting. "I hope Dad's story will teach someone else to live," Melton says." - Richmond Magazine May 2010 (BE).
