Summary
This memoir from the author of The Time of My Life (written with her husband Patrick Swayze) a remarkable, new account of grief, loss, caregiving, and moving on, with never before revealed stories of the Swayzes' final months together. Lisa Niemi and Patrick Swayze first met as teenagers at his mother's dance studio. He was older and just a bit cocky; she was the gorgeous waif who refused to worship the ground he walked on. It didn't take long for them to fall in love. Their thirty-four year marriage, which they explored together in The Time of My Life, was a uniquely passionate partnership
