I appreciated the opportunity to "get to know" Eliabeth Edwards a bit better through this book. She seems like someone I would have enjoyed a friendship with given her dedication to family as a first priority. We have that in common. She is real and tells her story which, at times, is heart-wrenching. The book is written in a scattered way often with lists of memories, events, people who I am unsure as to their identities. The writing isn't chronological or organized which is where I struggled. Regardless, I can't imagine the pain she endured mostly in the spotlight. I think she did what she could with that spotlight and remembered the people who helped her along the way. My only wish is that she could have had those eight years she wanted so badly. I think of the children she left behind and hope they know how central they were to her existence.
