What a great book and a great love story....

I would recommend this book to everyone... even those who weren't fans of Christopher Reeve. This book is about loss, courage, determination, resignation, family, spirit and most of all how strong the bonds of love can be throughout all. I enjoyed this book from the first word and Edward Hermann is an excellent narrator and was a friend to the Reeves, as well. If you want to be uplifted, even through the tragedy in this book, buy it, you won't be sorry.

Excellent Audio Book-Somewhere In Heaven

The author that put this book together for the Reeves family put it together very well. The narration was flawless as well as excellent characterization. I've purchased one other Audio CD is the past; the story line was good, but the narration was done by one person acting out all of the characters, including a five year old child--very cheesy needles to say. But "Some Where In Heaven" had me applauding one minute and tearing up the next; an excellent buy and I've already recommended this audio version to several of my friends.

Beautiful story of courage, grace and love!

I loved it! I highly recommend this amazing story of Christopher and Dana Reece, perfectly and sensitively narrated by Edward Herman. This couple, though part of the “rich and famous” set we all might have envied envy, proved through gut wrenching adversity that they were both made of pure gold and their love for each other was the “real deal”. I will be thinking of this book for a long time to come and I will turn to their examples for guidance if things take a turn for the worse in my own life.

It hurts to read this, but . . .

This story is remarkable on many levels. To read of the courage of this couple and their family gives hope to others in a similar predicament. I only hope I can be somewhere close to as valiant in my own similar situation. I have a brother who has ALS, my only living sibling, and I have taken it upon myself to help him stay focused on the things that he still has, including the love of his wife and family. I hope it helps. As of this point in time, we know what the outcome of his disease will be, and knowing that makes it easy to get into a funk of self-pity. I’m trying to stay out of that trap, and trying to help him avoid it as well. Thanks to Chris and Dana Reeve, I do have great role models to look to during the bad times.
