Summary
"In an eloquent, deeply personal and moving book, beloved NPR radio host Diane Rehm speaks about the death of her husband of fifty-four years-- and of her struggle to reconstruct her life without him. John Rehm was diagnosed with Parksinson's. Nine years later, he passed away, having made the difficult choice to end his extended illness by refusing to eat, drink, or accept medication. This process transformed Diane into an advocate for increased conversation about end-of-life care and the right to die on one's own terms, as well as a brave and sympathetic voice for anyone who must learn how to live again after bereavement." --
Summary
The NPR radio host recounts her late husband's long battle with Parkinson's and her efforts to reconstruct a life without him, describing how she found inspiration in the examples of widowed colleagues and her advocacy of the Right to Die movement
