Diane Ackerman’s memoir is full of hope for anyone who is dealing with the aftermath of a stroke. When her husband, Paul West, suffers a major stroke that affects the communication center of his brain, the two of them embark on a life-changing, life-affirming journey. Barbara McCulloh narrates the book in the voice of Ackerman, relating the challenges she faces as caregiver for a victim of global aphasia. She shares Ackerman’s hope, love, frustration, and exhaustion at being wife, lover, and therapist of her disabled husband. McCulloh’s delivery of Paul’s lines as he struggles to communicate sound amazingly accurate as they immerse the listener in his frustrating battle to be understood. Most importantly, Ackerman shares resources and advice indispensable to others on the same road. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
