I gave this book 5 stars, which is rare for me. Not because I'm some sort of genius literary critic (if that even exists), or even because I liked the writing style (I didn't really)...but because it was an extraordinarily moving story. Although I wasn't completely sold on the book at first, eventually I found myself absorbed. Even the parts that annoyed me, such as Ms. Whalen's frequent references to her bad-assery (even though she clearly is one), were made whole through balance (in this case ...more

I normally avoid books which deal with mental health issues—they hit too close to home—and yet they continue to find me. Everything You’ve Ever Done really hits hard even if you have a thick skin, which I definitely do not. Well-written, organized, flowing, and passionate, this memoir/autobiography has a lot going for it if you can stomach the deterioration of Dave’s mental state.

Whalen represents the key players as such sympathetic characters that one cannot help but to develop a connection wit

I received an advanced copy from the author and was blown away by the reality of her experience. No flowers and glitter here folks, just the real events and raw emotion that made it hard to put down. I just wanted to know how she was going to deal with everything that landed in her lap. Well written and truly from the heart, Amelia lays it all out there as the events in her life unraveled.Oh

I love the premise and purpose of this book, but the writing was kind of dull. The soul of the characters shines on though, so do read this if you doubt the beauty of love.

I think that this is the best love story I've ever read. Maybe because there's no way someone could write a fictional love that would move you the way someone's real story can.

Real life, tragedy, great joy, illness, hurt, forgiveness...

Amelia's memoir of supporting her husband through his last months shows the the power and beauty of giving up the life you've pictured for the person you love.
