I had been waiting to read this book since last year when I knew it was being released. Time went by and I finally got around to ordering it a couple of months ago. What can I say about this book?! It's simple, I laughed, I cried, I couldn't put it down at times but most of all I loved every word Lisa Niemi wrote. This book is testament to ALL of the wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, etc etc who have experienced looking after a loved one fighting cancer. And that is EXACTLY what Lisa and Patrick did to the bitter (sweet) end! It is an honest recollection of the journey she and Patrick took from the time of his diagnosis to his death 21 months later! I would recommend this book to anyone who needs the inspiration and strength to care for a loved one fighting cancer.
