Sad but very moving. A true love story that you won't be able to read without a tissue nearby.
Thank you to author, publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read.
while I got the book for free, it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.

A very touching story of an amazing woman and her loving family battling cancer. As a neighbor of Chuck and Debbie during Debbie's final battle I was touched in so many ways by their story. The ending was handled beautifully and left me in tears. God bless them both.

This true story is both gut-wrenching and heartwarming. I got an advanced (rough) copy, and even in that state I could NOT put it down. A must-read!

I totally agree, Mardi! I just finished it in one day! It is a beautiful love story in the face of overwhelming challenge. The pages brought Debbie back into my life for just a little while and let me enjoy “being with her” once again. She truly showed us how to live life to the fullest and how to die with no regrets. Thanks, Chuck, for taking this book to fruition! It is a remarkable piece of writing!

A beautifully written account and love story of two amazing people! I loved the way it was presented with both points of view. Have a box of tissues ready and also plan on laughing, too. I couldn’t stop reading. If only everyone could have a love so incredibly real in their lifetime!

Inspirational writing for anyone wondering how one copes and faces cancer so many times. I loved reading this book and once I started it I found myself not wanting to put it down. I look forward to future books by an awesome author.
