CHERYL SUCHORS will launch her memoir 48 PEAKS, Hiking and Healing in the White Mountains, at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, followed by a celebration upstairs at neighboring Christopher’s Restaurant.
Hiking is about the last thing forty-eight year old CHERYL SUCHORS is built for. Yet despite a flimsy body and fear of heights, she decides her mid-life success depends on hiking the tallest, most grueling White Mountains in New Hampshire. All forty-eight of them. In the ten years it takes her, she overcomes breast cancer and the loss of her hiking buddy. She’s forced to acknowledge that mastery alone isn’t enough—she must connect with friends and with nature to feel nourished and enriched, creating her own definition of success.
