From the heart in more ways than one. I loved the way Jennifer included the perspective of her husband, her friend and even a caregiver. Informative yet it kept you wanting to turn the page to see what happens. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I'd love to see another book on the challenges Joy faces as she grows. Well done, time for an encore.
