From the author of The Time of My Life (written with her husband Patrick Swayze) a remarkable, new account of grief, loss, caregiving, and moving on, with never before revealed stories of the Swayzes’ final months together.

Lisa Niemi and Patrick Swayze first met as teenagers at his mother’s dance studio. He was older and just a bit cocky; she was the gorgeous waif who refused to worship the ground he walked on. It didn’t take long for them to fall in love. Their thirty-four year marriage—which they explored together in The Time of My Life —was a uniquely passionate partnership.

Patrick and I were/are both pilots, and we shared our love of aviation.

When Patrick received his diagnosis of cancer in January 2008, it would change our lives forever.

Ready to take off from the San Juan Islands, where Patrick and I had been exploring.


May 2009. At our ranch in New Mexico with two of our dogs, Lucas and Kuma.

I walk out for one on the happiest days of my life-- the renewal of Patrick's and my wedding vows.

At Rancho de Dias Alegres in New Mexico. The land is beautiful, soulful, and serene.
