I truly loved this book, in no small part because we have Huntington's Disease in the family. There is so much doom and gloom in the world, especially when we have information like our medical history, but this book manages to focus on the real stuff, the life lived along the way, in such a terrific way. I want all my HD family to read it, too! Again, loved this book.

What do you do when you've not only been running away from your family, but have completely exhausted your emotional reserves helping people in desperate situations abroad. Do you accept a new life for yourself, cobbled from pieces of the old and new, or do you just try to find a way to return back to those highs & lows helping people in desperate places. Really well written.
