A mesmerizing and courageous memoir: the story of two sisters uncovering the depth of their love through the life-and-death experience of a bone marrow transplant. Throughout her life Elizabeth Lesser has sought understanding about what it means to be true to yourself and, at the same time, truly connected to the ones you love. But when her sister, Maggie, needs a bone marrow transplant to save her life, and Lesser learns that she is the perfect match, she faces a far more immediate and complex question about what it really means to love.

The depth and sensitivity of this magnificent book take you on a journey into what matters most in life--our connections with others and with our selves. Elizabeth Lesser's journey is both personal and universal, and Sally Field's exquisite narration of this narrative brings the power and profundity of the story to life in vivid emotional communication that makes this audio book a deeply moving experience to become immersed in and to grow from. Bravo!
