    more from this reviewer

    A great tribute but needs to motivate more interest

    I first want to say I appreciate this book was mostly free of the baser usage of words authors seem to need theses days. There was some profanity (too much for me) but not excessive.
    I can't imagine why a couple would want to put themselves into a relationship that was so explosive from the beginning but it does prove most relationships can succeed with much effort, respect and some counseling.
    I can appreciate the strain and uncertainty one goes through with such horrible illnesses. I, as I am sure is true for much of the world population, have had personal family and friends who have suffered through similar trials.
    Much can be learned through others experiences, yet many times what works for one doesn't necessarily work for another.
    It is great for you to share your experiences and the book was quite well written however at times it seemed too repetitive and fluctuated back and forth too frequently.
    I feel this is worth reading, specially for those who haven't experienced this type of loss before.
    I won this and thank you for entering it into the giveaway. I enjoyed the opportunity to read it.

    Anyone who is has a loved who is terminally ill or chronically ill should read this-the joys that are found in everyday life and challenges of medical care. Tough decisions I'm staring atand I'm grateful for another view.
