Cynda and Michael’s story is a story that needs to be told. It is not just another tender love story. Their love story is in essence a story of courage: Courage to fall in love with the foresight of heartache to come, courage to bask in love while clouds of terminal illness hover about, courage to embrace love while life is slipping away, and ultimately, courage to let go.

To Michael, Love Cynda starts out as many romances nowadays do: A chance meeting on a dating website that morphs into a roma

Probably everyone who has lost someone close feels like telling their story to keep the deceased's memory alive - this author took all of her grief and pain and did just that. Yeasting's memoir is an intensely personal look at her relationship with a terminally-ill man. The couple packed a lot of living into their short time together and clearly the relationship for Yeasting was a profound, life-changing event.

I found the most interesting parts of the story to be the discussions of how the coupl

I took about 3 days to read this story. It was very captive reading- for someone to finally find their soul-mate with true love but heartbreaking that his life was shortend by terminal illness with no recourse. This beautiful story encompasses a relationship from day to day dealing with each other's thoughts dealing with the inevitable. However short one's life, true love with strength accepts that one day they will meet again.The depth of love has no boundaries. ...more
This book is the beautiful true story of Cynda and Michael and how their love for one another grew despite Michael's cancer. It gives you true insight as to Cynda's amazing heart and her strength, and it made me want to get to know her and have her in my life. However, at times this book made me feel uncomfortable, as I was reading personal emails that I didn't feel were meant for my eyes, including pet names. ...more

For Michael, Love Cynda A heartwarming book written by a local author. Cynda never gave up finding her soul mate even if it wasn't for the rest of her life. She gave it a chance and was able to share her beautiful story. ...more

It's a book about hope. It is a tale of love, loss, and moving on against all odds. I find that the tell-all memoir really worked for this piece as well as giving the audience complete access to email exchanges, pictures, and other media to tell a story of a brief but life changing relationship. ...more

For Michael, Love Cynda is a beautiful, raw account of true love in the face of terminal illness. I was captivated by the first page and despite some parts feeling very intimate (it is, after all, her first-person account of a real-life relationship), I am honoured to have been offered a glimpse inside such a passionate yet tumultuous time in both Cynda and Michael's lives. The outlook both Cynda and Michael had regarding Michael's diagnosis and pursuing a relationship was incredible, and I felt ...more
