This book is titled “Sandy” or “Sandie” I believe. It’s a story (real-life) written by a doctor about the death from his wife, Sandy (born as Alexandra) from cancer. I think she must have died in about 1967 or 1968. She had a 3 year old son called Alexander. I read the book sometime between 1978-1982 when I was younger. I’ve always wondered if I could find a copy of it and all my research has come up with nothing. It’s possible I have some of the details wrong. I got the book out of the Rochester, NY Public Library at the time. It was in hard-cover. I am sure that it was published by a “reputable” publisher. I have searched for “cancer narratives” to no avail.
