What People are Saying About This

Cynthia Wall

This is a story of digging deep after loss, finding that being with another is worth the risk, and staying open to lessons both human and Divine. At times an excruciating memoir of living with cancer, at others, a combination of 'How To' and, more useful, 'How NOT To' of middle-aged dating. Those who have loved deeply will be reminded of what they have or have lost. For others, it's the promise of how good a relationship can be. It has a happy ending, yet acknowledges that seeking love must always include a willingness to lose again. --Cynthia Wall, LCSW, author of The Courage to Trust:A Guide to Building Deep and Lasting Relationships

Freed presents a look at life on life's terms. Any man who experiences loss either by death. disease, or divorce will find parts of himself in these pages. It is through the aftermath that this book leads in an honest, heartfelt, and often humorous way to recovery. Recommended highly.
