The book is a beacon for those that feel lost. Her story radiates hope in the darkest of times. This is a must read!

Her book invoked so much emotion for her and for anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer with such insight and understanding of life and it's hard lessons. Thank you Jeanne for sharing your story, baring your soul, and letting your reader perhaps heal from their own losses. It was so well written on so many levels and I would highly recommened to everyone.
