Positive and genuine, writer Amy Bloom's husband, Brian, sounds like someone anyone would love to know. Sadly, in 2019 he received an Alzheimer's diagnosis and eventually called on Bloom's support as he chose to end his own life before the disease could. This memoir moves gently but cohesively between anecdotes of the past and the journey to Switzerland for the couple's final days together. Bloom provides her own narration, speaking of both her great love and devastating loss with equal parts emotional warmth and quiet composure. Bloom's voice is capable and clear, inspiring admiration for the strength it must have taken not only to write these moments down, but to then read them aloud. The memoir is a loving tribute; Bloom's narration of it is remarkable. L.B.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2022 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
