Publisher's Summary

A self-anointed spinster at 51, Myra Lipinski is reasonably content with her quiet life, her dog, Frank, and her career as a visiting nurse. But everything changes when Chip Reardon, the golden boy she adored in high school, is assigned as her new patient. Choosing to forgo treatment for an incurable illness, Chip has returned to his New England hometown to spend what time he has left. Now, Myra and Chip find themselves engaged in a poignant redefinition of roles, and a complicated dance of memory, ambivalence, and longing.

Thank you Elizabeth Berg.

I loved this. The character development was amazing and I could relate to or with each character. My husband is going through his second bout with cancer in the last 3 yrs and her writing of the sadness and beauty of the days that go by was right on point. The most amazing times come out of the worst situations. Elizabeth Berg always hits me deep in my heart and soul.

Interesting Story

I like the story. It's unique, not traditional, and although possibly improbable (as some have pointed out) I could let a bit of poetic license get away from it. The story is probably not for everyone, and it certainly wasn't a happy tale, at all, but there was something utterly human about it and I liked it. The one downside? The author reading it. No offense, you're a great writer, but stick to what you are best at. Writing. I would prefer hearing it read by someone who actually does it for a living.

What a downer

I’m a full time hospice nurse. I found this book to be poorly researched, poorly narrated & boring. A real downer. Disappointing in all aspects.
