About this title


After liberating herself from an abusive marriage of many years, Jean Farwell gained independence and strength, moved on, and met Jacques Bouthillier, the man of her dreams. After all she'd been through in her previous marriage, she was now ready to settle down with her Prince Charming and live out her happily ever after until the end of her days. Only four short years after swearing their vows, however-a vow that Jean was determined to keep-tragedy struck when Jacques was determined to have fallen ill with three autoimmune diseases. After a year in the intensive care units of Montreal hospitals, it was evident that Jacques would be in need of long-term care. The fairy tale was over. Her love was now dependent on medical machines, and Jean didn't know what to do or how to go on. She knew only that she couldn't give up. Her husband belonged at home with her, waking up next to her every morning and going to sleep beside her every night. Living out the rest of his days locked away in a hospital was unacceptable, and she was determined to do whatever it took to make sure that didn't happen. In this memoir of true love and devotion, Jean shares the story of how she learned to care for her husband on life support at home.

About the Author:

Jean Elaine Farwell never imagined she would have a story as profoundly moving to write about as the journey of life, love, and death she was fortunate enough to take with her late husband, Jacques, in Quebec, Canada. She now lives in Wisconsin near her three sons and her grandchildren.
