    Considering this is a Kindle Unlimited self published book it is pretty good I enjoyed reading it. There was much more to the author’s story than her struggle with cystic fibrosis and double lung transplant. Her family certainly had more than its share of tragedy.

    Loved the book tremendously. Well written to describe heartache and difficult times, but more importantly to offer hope and courage.

    I enjoyed this very much. I had nephew to die of CF at 22 months old. It was discovered soon after his birth as he was born with a bowel obstruction. He was sick or in the hospital it seemed like the whole 22 months. I saw with my own eyes the huge task his care was when at home, between meds, the percussion that seemed so harsh but I knew was necessary, the coughing that was the most awful thing I’d ever heard. But most of all, I’ll never forget the haunted look in his Mama’s eyes after he died I enjoyed this very much. I had nephew to die of CF at 22 months old.

But most of all, I’ll never forget the haunted look in his Mama’s eyes after he died...she loved him so much and took such good care of him. That look is still there to some degree, about 34 years later.

    very sad and heartwarming story This book was a wonderfully organized. It brings the reader into thieves and makes you feel you are there with them. So very sorry for the loss and suffering your family went through. May God bless and enrich your lives from here on.

    Beautiful memoir This book shared her mother’s struggles as well as her siblings growing up with CP. I wished this kindle version had pictures of her family. Elizabeth raised a beautiful family and I only wish I had met her. Thank you to both authors.

    SOSO It just went on and on! But I admire her for her fortitude. Just found the book depressing. Probably just my low mood.

    grammar The only thing I didn’t like in the book was the wrong use of, for example, “Gilles and I”. If it’s the object of the sentence, it should be “Gilles and me”.

    The writing felt amateur but it was very worth the read. Anna's story is unbelievable and has stayed with me since I read it almost a year ago. The writing felt amateur but it was very worth the read. Anna's story is unbelievable and has stayed with me since I read it almost a year ago.
