 From the moment of Greg’s life-shattering diagnosis and through his days of conscious living and dying, then the months following, the reader is offered a window into how one family navigated this perilous, heartbreaking, beautiful journey “without a map.” Unlike a story told with the insight and distance of retrospective memory, this book is unique in its raw immediacy and honesty. Through the almost daily writings of the family, including the person living with the realities of his glioblastoma, the reader is taken with them on their perilous, nonlinear trek, with all of its deep sorrows, gratitude, unanswerable questions, paradoxes, concerns, and surprises.

This is not a “how-to” story, yet it easily serves as a model for confronting life-limiting illness with presence and grace, and as a beacon to illuminate how love sustains and survives when everything has to be redefined.

“Nancy Ewert’s honest and illustrative account of her husband’s battle with brain cancer serves as a guide for others to help their loved ones die well by living even better.”

—Bob Laws, Hospice RN
