This is the story of Carmen, who loses her life to lung cancer at age 60. Told by her sister Nicole, it is the gut-wrenching account of Carmenâ€s final year and her familyâ€s journey through this crisis with her. The story is graphic, often humorous, and always intensely moving. Above all, itâ€s a love story â€" about the unbreakable bond between two sisters, about the strength of sibling ties, about the power of maternal love and most movingly, about the incredible devotion of the man for whom Carmen is a life-long love. This inspiring book sheds light on the complicated process of facing terminal illness and how loved ones are affected. An intimately human, touching narrative. Margaret Dukes, former Associate Director, Canadian Medical Association "The way the author shares her own emotions is what may ultimately help another reader come to understand and accept that their own feelings - whatever they may be - are normal and that each of us experiences this journey in our own unique and equally valid way." Debbie Bolger-Ingimundson, Health care provider "The book is very captivating - it is honest and human. It is so real!" Lucie Guimond, Director, The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence "It's a remarkable memoir. I have no doubts it will serve many." Janet Love Morrison, Author "The book really drew me into the actual experience (moist eyes and all) ... it should be obligatory reading for anyone involved with end-of-life care." Steve Pelle
