Part memoir, part psychological handbook, Sheehy's book presents a very detailed overview of the stages - eight "turnings" in the labyrinth of the care-giving journey, with well-crafted suggestions and background information for understanding each change in the family's relationship. The most intense passages focus on the long battle with cancer and with Alzheimer's dementia, but the book has a lot to give for those facing any long-term health issues for themselves and their loved ones.

This book is a testament to Gail Sheehy's incredible devotion, and committment to her late husband whose life she extended by more than ten years by acting as an assertive advocate for him with the medical establishment.
