A poignant memoir of a tough cancer diagnosis and how a young couple coped with the treatment. I think the part that covers their post treatment lives is especially valuable reading. Life can't just go back to normal without some painful adjustments to new realities.

An emotional journey

It’s been a long time since a book made me this emotional. Maybe it was their story, maybe it was my own health issues and the love of my amazing hubby but I have no problems to admitting to crying throughout this memoir. It is a true love story and teaches us all that having someone by your side during the good times, and especially the bad, can have a miraculous effect when going through an illness or even just a rough patch. Very well written and I will no doubt read it a

Honest and Raw

What an inspiring story! If you haven't done so already, grab your tissues. This book is beyond amazing with its pages full of honest, raw vulnerability. I will earn the reader that at times this book is very heavy on your heart and you'll want to take a minor break to absorb and process the information received. Honore is a powerful writer and gently leads the reader on their journey from beginning until present day with cancer. Most people have been effected by cancer in some way

Cancer Sucks

This account of a cancer diagnosis, chemo, surgery, and events post-cancer is the first book I’ve read to accurately depict what life is like, not only for the spouse with cancer, but the care-giver also. I also was appreciative of the author’s honesty in writing about the emotional toll cancer took on her and her husband post-surgery. As a cancer survivor, I remember crying and feeling so depressed, and wondering why, when I’d been given a clean bill of health I wasn’t feeling overj

Be ready for your heartstrings to be tugged, to smile a little and a reason to look at the better things. In this beautiful story Honore shares a story of survival. Cancer is the worst case scenario for so many people, and its traumatizing. It's so hard for those who are trying to take the role of care taker to not fall to the darkness of what such a disease. But through it all, Honore and Tom find reasons to smile, a reason to look for another day and then just in general find peace. Their jour ...more
