From Library Journal:

Do you ever think what life must be like for the well spouse of someone chronically ill? Strong tells us what it is like to watch her husband become increasingly debilitated by multiple sclerosis, to deal with the financial burden of illness, to realize that their and their children's futures are changed forever. By writing about her experiences and those of others in similar situations she intends to offer support to the well spouse. The personal accounts are interspersed with practical advice about dealing with physicians, handling insurance, and just coping. An appendix lists organizations giving help. Not a happy book, but well written, moving, and immensely helpful. John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York

From Publishers Weekly:

This is at once an affecting, personal, yet practical and specific guide for the well spouse of a chronically ill mate. Strong has, for the past decade, cared for her husband, who suffers from multiple sclerosis. "Those in a similar plight will recognize Strong as a spokesperson who gives voice to their mourning, anger, valor and committed love," said PW . Author tour.
