In the middle of her wonderfully hectic life as a wife, mother of three, and successful journalist, Susan Spencer-Wendel was handed the terminal diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and given a year to live. Her decision to live that time in joy gave rise to this uplifting memoir celebrating life's small miracles, precious relationships, and joyous memories. With upbeat pacing and wry humor, narrator Karen White reflects the author's unbroken spirit and ever present wit while her wistful tone conveys all the pathos of the situation without ever becoming maudlin. White's moving presentation helps realize Spencer-Wendel's ultimate wish for her incredible book "to make people laugh and cry, and hug their children, and joke with their friends, and dwell on how wonderful it is to be alive."
