Synopsis:To the medical world, I was a host body, surviving only to bring a new life into the world. And while I wanted to die more than anything in the world, I never wanted this. No, I never wanted to cease to exist. This was the worst death of all.”
Jude Black lives in that in-between, twilight place teetering on death but clinging to life in order to bring her baby into this world. Only she knows the circumstances surrounding her mysterious fall off the bluff that landed her in the hospital being kept alive by medical intervention. Only she knows who the father of her baby is. In this poignantly crafted literary novel, the mystery unfolds and the suspense builds as the consequences of Jude’s decisions threaten to reveal everyone’s deceptions, even her own.
BLUFF offers a sensitive look at essential questions such as the value of human life, the consciousness of those in a coma and the morality of terminating life support. At the core is the story of a tragically misunderstood woman who finds peace, acceptance, understanding and even love on her deathbed.

Normally this is not the type of book I would read but when I had read a bit about it I thought it sounded interesting. Then once I picked it up I could not put it down. I wanted to find out what happened.
Jude had fell down a bluff a place she normally would not be. Someone had called 911 and she was found on the remote bottom of the bluff. She was badly injured, both legs broke lots of bruising and sores all over her body. Will she survive? Why was she on the bluff? How did she fall? You will need to read Bluff to find out what happened. I am sure you will not be disappointed. It kept me up wanting to see what happened.
