From the moment Anjee's husband is diagnosed with a fatal brain tumor, the couple's life is catapulted onto a new trajectory. They are unwittingly forced onto a long and difficult journey. This period is filled with pain as well as love, and they experience all the intensity and beauty of living daily with life and death. In all the intimacy and tenderness of their relationship, it becomes starkly evident that they are each on a different path: as Gunnar faces his approaching death, Anjee faces a life of living without him. During this experience, Anjee searched in vain for a book for relatives to a person about to die. So she decided to write a book about living with a life-threatening illness, and about letting go. An unusually honest and open book about death, reflecting on and presenting all its aspects.
