When disaster struck and her brother John was diagnosed with AIDS, Susan Ford Wiltshire and her brother began an agonizing but special journey together. This is the story of that journey--a story of finding possibilities rather than resignation, of finding strength instead of defeat. Wiltshire's memoir gives voice to all family members touched by this terrible disease.

I live in Lubbock, Texas, where much of this story takes place, and I happen to know some of the people Dr. Ford mentions. But that was hardly the only reason I wanted to read this compassionate biography. Dr. Ford shows how her brother bravely faced AIDS and the bigotry related to it. Despite its subject matter, this book is never depressing. Instead, Dr. Ford captures the inspirational aspects of her brother¿s life and how it touched the lives of people around him. I found her poems about his struggle especially touching and hope she¿ll share more of those in another book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
