About the Author

Elizabeth Scarboro is the author of two children's novels and a winner of the Olga and Paul Menn Foundation Prize for fiction. She lives in Berkeley, California, with her husband and two children.


"Elizabeth Scarboro shows us what those fortunate enough to find the deepest love will do for each other. Her memoir is a moving story that will shine its warm light for anyone navigating the rough country of illness with a partner. With some personal observation of the lay of this land, I will shout out-quality medical insurance for all, in our time!" -- Julie Metz, New York Times bestselling author of Perfection "Her thoughtful memoir takes readers on the beautiful and painful journey of loving someone with a life-threatening illness... Teen readers will enjoy the romance-unsentimentally portrayed-of marrying a childhood sweetheart and the grit of sticking with him through breathing tubes and ventilators." -- School Library Journal "Scarboro invites us to accompany her on every mile of her joyous, often terrifying, sad and exalted journey of love. A natural storyteller, she brings vividly to life her struggles both to protect Stephen, who has a "lightness about him," and to keep him at her side as long as she can so that they can embrace life to its fullest. She leads us down the path where his medical condition consumes every waking minute of their lives-including a lung transplant, its results and Stephen's eventual decline-and shares her agony, her joy, her anger and her indecision with us." -- Henry L. Carrigan, Jr. - BookPage "Starred review. With strength and grace ... this book squeezes a soul-encompassing marriage into the events of just one decade." -- Library Journal
