I think the book was well written and easy to read. It is a heart felt journey through the transplant process. The poetry was fantastic. But I think the true mission or meaning of this book is for everyone who will donate their organs must let their Family know their wishes before the moment of truth happens to all of us Death.Was this review helpful?

Not only does this book appeal to readers who are not in a crisis situation, it is insightful and honest in it's approach to what a family goes through waiting for a loved one to recieve an organ, specifically a heart. The writer immediately pulled me into her circumstances. It is written in a way that I understood what she was going through as a wife, living through this experience her husband was having and also what he experienced from her support and love. I see through her eyes the fear and the hope, the pain and the sorrow, and her faith in the Lord to pull her together to take care of not only her husband and their children, but also her home and their life. Her thoughts and fears are eloquately written, taking care of details and concerns that are most helpful. There is a sense of being 'normal' in a crisis situation that would give anyone experiencing this themselves some relief. I honestly recommend this valuable and insightful tool for anyone involved in waiting for a transplant, or anyone involved in this process.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
