It was going to be the trip of a lifetime.
An enchanting trek through the Guatemalan jungle, viewing the mystical Mayan Ruins, a breath-stealing sunset from atop an ancient temple, a magical entourage of a million fireflies.
Then suddenly our wonderful adventure became a nightmare.
What followed was a roller coaster of hope and despair that would span the longest days of my life. As we frantically fought for my wife’s life, we found ourselves far from the necessities we took for granted at home. Amid the heartbreaking twists and turns, though, were encounters with brave and selfless people who made a lasting impression during a horrific time.
Without Explanation is a true story. It’s a story of anticipated adventure and remarkable courage, of heartache and disbelief, and of hope and fear. And at its very core, it’s at once a life-altering tragedy and a story of love and devotion.

Utterly heartbreaking story. Really emotional and honest account of the way this poor lady died and shows just how quickly life can be taken from us without warning. It astonished me how naive I was to how, in many parts of the world, there just isn't the access to emergency medical treatment that we so take for granted. I think it must have been incredibly hard to write this book but a worthwhile effort as I, and am sure many others, were really very moved.
This book was so hard to put down, I found myself staying up too late and sneaking a few pages in any free minute! What an incredible true story of love, desperation, loss, and healing. Mr. Jasmer tells his story with raw emotion, honesty, and sensitivity that leaves you feeling like you are there with them, fighting for Val. a "must read"!
