Summary
Lisa Niemi and Patrick Swayze first met as teenagers at his mother's dance studio. He was older and just a bit cocky; she was the gorgeous waif who refused to worship the ground he walked on. It didn't take long for them to fall in love. Their 34-year marriage, which they explored together in The Time of My Life, was a uniquely passionate partnership. Here, for the first time, Lisa shares the details of Patrick's twenty-one-month battle with pancreatic cancer in this candid look at what losing a partner really entails--how to care for him or her, how to make it through each day without falling into despair, and how to move forward in the second half of your life when the person you spent the first half with is gone. While this is an unflinching depiction of illness and loss, it is also a hopeful and life-affirming exploration of the power of the human spirit.--From publisher description
