    1. Cindy on said:

      A beautifully written memoir! I couldn't put it down! Cancer and it's harrowing effect on a family. Here is one example of the "beautifully written" part: "Faith. What was that anyway? A philosophical place of being? An act of will? The inside out of hope?". "To Ken faith was a verb, and to me an untrustworthy noun."

    2. Mariana Ramalho Ortigao on said:

      The last pages of the book are what makes it stand out. As I read, and cried, through the last chapters I couldn't help thinking of all my friends and family who have cared for their loved ones through sickness and death.G. Burgess writes with such honesty and love about the last weeks of her husband's life. A wonderful tribute to her marriage.
