Tom Malmquist's wife was rushed to the hospital, pregnant with their first child. Within days Karin is dead from acute leukemia and Tom was left to care for their newborn daughter. At times he feels as if he is too tired to go on and should be committed to save those around him from being scorched by his own pain and suffering. Amazing, heartbreaking and complicated, much like life itself, this fictionalized memoir is not an easy read and why would it be? It's full of raw truths that will put your heart in a vise-like grip and leave you gasping and aching to hold your loved ones close.
