Dream New Dreams

Having read Jai Pausch's husband's beautiful story on childhood dreams, "The Last Lecture" I was more than willing to give "Dream New Dreams" a chance. Jai's story follows her trials as caregiver to her husband as he suffered through pancreatic cancer and eventually died. Her story is heartfelt and the pain that she and her family went through is excruciating. Jai masterfully recounts her experiences prior to, during, and after her husband's battle with cancer. She reaches out to the heart of everyone that has lost a loved one or has had to care for them at their most vulnerable. She doesn't come off as a saint, which I think is one of the many points she tries to convey, she highlights how hard it was spiritually, physically, and emotionally. Sharing her experiences is a perfect tribute to her late husband. Randy would be proud to see how far his wife and children have come. A moving read, have tissues ready.

I received this book for free from Goodreads Giveaways in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
