Publisher's Summary

My name is Jake Althaus, and for the most part, I seem to have it all. A loving partner, a devoted dog, a promising future in nursing school. The only problem is: I’ve been plagued with persistent headaches, and though I loathe to admit that anything is wrong, a routine checkup with my general practitioner, and the subsequent MRI that follows, delivers a devastating truth.

I have brain cancer.

It isn’t terminal, but that doesn’t change the dread that festers in my heart, in my spirit, in my brain. Surgery, followed by chemotherapy, is the only hope of a successful recovery. The only problem is: I’m scared out of my mind about what will happen next. I’ll lose my hair. My body. Possibly my sanity.

My life is only just beginning.

And now I fear it may possibly end.

Deeply Moved

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I love how the MCs are supportive of each other. I can feel how they sincerely love each other.

This was the first time listening to this narrator. I found his voice so soothing that I wanted to finish this audiobook in one sitting.

I definitely recommend this audiobook.

Beautiful Tearjerker

OMG, if you are looking for a tearjerker look no further.
Just remember to bring a massive industrial size Kleenex paper roll.

Narrator Mickey Gousset successfully brought this sad, very-very sad tale of beautiful people who magnetize heartache, pain and suffering and still find reasons to live, love and hope. The lovers faithfully, almost unbelievably are so good to each other,😭😭😭 the loyalty, support and trusting the love they have, propelled them through the toughest struggles I hope I never experience.

I do recommend this book for a long road trip.
Make sure you arrive at a happy place to balance the Chi and all that.

Happy Listening

Beautiful story!

We following Adrian and Jake through sickness and health.

The narrator Mickey Gousset has a light/easy voice when it’s about a heavy subject.

Kody Boye is a new author to me and I really enjoyed this book.
