Goodreads asked Raechel Bratnick:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Raechel Bratnick Soon after my husband Michael died, I began to write about his illness, not knowing it would become this book, but knowing I wanted to capture the experience as close to the events as possible before it would become buried in grief and lost to memory. I wrote as I worked my way into a new life. At the end of a retreat nearly two years ago, which I gave in Normandy, France, I made the commitment to complete the book because I knew that it was important to give hope to others going through similar experiences.
