5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and honest
By Alessio Perrone
The authors share both sides of a cancer diagnosis -that of patient and caregiver -with a hard truth that is inspiring. The emotions shared are definitely raw, but also understandable. I would recommend this book to survivors and those going through anticipatory grief. I hope writing this book was a cathartic experience for the authors.
5.0 out of 5 stars A compassionate love story of a mother and daughter and the will to survive.
Excellent story of a mother/daughter's close bond and their hopeful emotions expressed by each of them individually dealing with cancer. If you know anyone battling cancer or are curious how a family might handle the medical challenges, this book certainly will bring tears to your eyes.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!

This is such a touching story. The way it was written keeps you interested. It is from different perspectives, not just one. I will gladly purchase another book by Beth Pauvlinch
5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
I decided to read this book because I knew Carol, Beth and Janice. I grew up in the same neighborhood as their entire family. The whole family was always friendly, funny and as I remember... a close and loving family. I knew Carol had passed away after a long hard battle with cancer but what I didn't know was all the love, laughs and tears that came along with it. I am truly happy that the three of them had that opportunity to make memories and become closer than ever... even through a sad situation ... God has his way of making it a blessing. I absolutely enjoyed the opportunity to read this and see it all through your eyes. I had moments of laughter and moments of tears right along with you all. Beth, you were a wonderful daughter and Janice, you were a wonderful sister. You both loved her and made her last years as special as possible. She loved you more than life itself and she will forever be watching over you with love and pride in her heart!! Thanks for allowing me to share in your memories both good and bad.
